Nathan - Poroti/Whangarei
I'm looking to fill in some blanks in my whakapapa, I am interested in the Nathan whanau from the Poroti area.
I have a William Nathan married to a Mary Nathan nee Pataropa. I know that they had a daughter named Mary Nathan & she married a man named Hill Edwards.
The marriage cert I have shows Mary as being born in Poroti, her usual residence as Poroti & her current residence at time of marriage in 1925 as Portland. Hill was born at Takahiwai, usually at Takahiwai but current as Portland. Hill was also know as Hira & sometimes his surname was shown as Teri in the earlier days.
Any leads or info would be much appreciated.
Edwards "Teri family", Rewi, Tawhai, Ruka, Ngapine, Johansen. Poroti, Waima, Takahiwai, Northland. Te Uri Roroi, Te Parawhau.
