WADE, John Charles Waterford And KAIPONO, Harata
My GGGrandfather was John charles Waterford Wade He Married Harata Kaipono in 1838 in Waiuku.One of their sons was Thomas Wade who married Harriet Mckay and they were my GGrandparents.I would love to hear from anyone who knows something about them little stories and history. I know my grandfather Thomas owned or run a Billiard Saloon in Taupiri.I found out recently that John was a sawyer in Auckland but thats about all I know of him. I know very little about Harata Kaipono but I have been to Te Awamarahi Marae which was an awesome visit. Hoping someone can help. Thank You
