HANLEY, Hapi Waaka
I've always pondered over this tupuna if she was a daughter of Ngati Hao chief Patuone. Her descendants would be many in and around New Zealand and Australia. Her husband was Horace Earle Hanley whom a settler in Kororareka (Russell). I suggest Hapi Waaka (Hanley) is the daughter of Ngaitawake tupuna Te Whai Hakuene. Hapi's siblings were Rewiri Paru; Ihaka Te Tai Hakuene; and Waaka Hakuene. Her name proper is Hape Hakuene
Kia ora tatou!
