I have just seen the 2007 postings by Ratakaia Ratahi and P.Taitimu regarding their grandfather, Pauro Te Kereme Taitimu being from Kawhia and Pawarenga. My wife could be off the brother that returned to Waikato. Her gr8 grandad was Nga-wati Taitimu 1882 - 1942 who wed Amiria Matiu 1890 - 1928 from Morehu marae, Pawarenga. She is looking for her Taitimu uplines. Can anyone still help please

Tena koe,

I'm pretty sure your wife's gr8 grand-dad comes throug the Kamira (Campbell) whanau.
Here's a link: http://www.kamirawhanau.com/?page_id=980

Kia ora to awhi e Hohaia2. It was said on the Pawarenga Te Uri-o-Tai Facebook page that Reke Taitimu (born 1917) was Pauro’s first cousin. BDM Online says Pauro Taitimu died 1955 aged 70 = born 1885. So Pauro is more likely to be a cousin or brother to Reke’s father, Ngawati, hence this post. Pauro and Ngawati’s children have similar land interests up North yet none at Kawhia it seems. My wife posted on the Kamira site in Aug-2011 as there was talk then that Ngawati was whangai-ed from there by the Reverend Hemi Taitimu. We haven’t had a reply. Hemi’s brother, Paraone Tuatahi Taitimu had several children so he was a possibilty too. We’ve been searching a long time. So how sure are you that Ngawati was from them ? Email me if you want.

Okay!.... I maybe wrong with any affiliation with the Kamira (Campbell) whanau.
My late maternal grandmother left her husband and had a relationship with a Jimmy Taitimu. He was from Pawerenga. They had no issue.... and I'm sure they were in a de-facto relationship.
Now I think Jimmy's mother was Amiria Matiu. Amiria was a daughter of Matiu Wiripo and Ripeka.... and Matiu being a brother to Waipouri Wiripo (from this tupuna comes the descendants of the Waipouri whanau). Amiria's husband was Wikitaringi Taitimu. Could this be the same whanau of your wife?

Ma te wa!

Ae, same whanau. Jim is her grandpa, so your grandma must be Evelyn or Kate. I knew the latter, a lovely person although I didn't know her maiden name or whanau. We were living in Wellington and never got the chance to be close to them. Pakeha records say Jim's dad was Ngawati Taitimu so Wikitaringi is a new one on us. Ae, we know the Matiu uplines but not the Taitimu one. Kia ora mo tena

Ae marika! My nanna was Hinerakei (Kate) Tupe from Matangirau; Whangaroa. My nan and Jim lived over in Devonport from my earliest memories from the 1960's till my nan's passing in 1982.
Jim was a very kind man and loved my nan till her passing. I believe he passed not long after my nan.
Search for me on FB.... Hohaia Hakaraia II.

Wowww, more, still speechless. This all matches their holdings. Grandpa Jimmy Taitimu passed in Nov-1983 and is buried by Morehu marae, Pawarenga. I suppose your Nan returned to Matangirau ? My wife also has links to Mangaiti marae, Kaeo and Rere bay. Many times thank you for this

Kia ora koutou, I know this post is over a year old however; for what it's worth here goes. Taitumu and Taitimu whanau from National Park are the one and the same whanau. I know there is a connection of this whanau to Otukou marae (I think it is) on the lower slopes of Ruapehu, and another marae (Kakariki?) near to Taumarunui southside. I seen the Matiu Wiripo name up north but don't personally know of any connection between these two tatai.
George Taitumu lives around Natty Park still I think.
Nga mihi
