Kate Wyllie and Wi Pere lived in Gisborne in the 1800's, do not know much about early history of family. There is a family cottage in Gisborne called the Wyllie cottage. My grandfather is Geoffrey Ralston Wyllie who is now deceased and was living in New Plymouth, my grandmother also deceased is Shona Margaret Trass. Will like any leads as to finding out where my whanau is from.

Kia ora jukarn,

Could you give us a bit more info? For example, where each one is from and any other names if known.

Good Luck!

Information regarding Wi Pere - You can contact the Wi Pere Trust, Gisborne, and his sister Keita Wyllie, either the Rongowhakaata Trust or Ngai Tamanuhiri trust - another option check out the book 'Horouta' all the information and whakapapa you require is in there.

Thomas Halbert= Keita Kaikiri
Keita Halbert=James Ralston Wyllie.
Thomas Halbert was from Newcastle on Tyne.
There are several resources available to research the Halbert line. Yes the "Horouta" book by Rongowhakaata Halbert will assist you.

Kia Ora, I relate to you but through another Wife of Thomas Halbert = (6w) Maora Pani and had Arihi Halbert (sis to Wi Pere) who is my gtgtgrandmother. I live in Porirua.

Your whanau is huge, and you will have no problems finding the history, especially from those still in Gisborne.

kia kaha, kia ngawari

Hi everyone, I have just recently learned a small part of my whakapapa. My grandmother is Kathleen Chatfield, her mum was Norma Wyllie, Norma's father was Gavin Ralston Wyllie, his mother was Kate Wyllie.
I'm interested in the name Lachlan as that is my grandfathers name and his mother was Elanor Gannon. Elanors father was Michael Gannon (Kate Wyllies 2nd husband)
Obviously you link in here somewhere? Looking forward to learning more about the whakapapa and Rongowhakaata

kia ora to you all! im not sure how many people are still following this thread but i just came upon it and thought id share my connection.

Thomas halbert and Keita Kaikiri were my great great great grandparents through the Gannon side like you, deb. My dad did quite a bit of research on our family tree so if anyone needs any more info i can see what we can provide!

Another question i would like confirmed is, am i right in that we are Ngati Kaipoho?
