Ki Ora Esah
My great grandfather was known only as Ta Kerei(Takerei);not sure how it was really spelt, and had married 2 sisters, Hinekaihinu Te Poria & Ngati Huikereru of Ngati Rangi/Uenuku descent(Whanganui). We have been informed he may have been of Ngapuhi/Northern descent(Very vague!), not much else is known about him.
My father & his siblings were not registered as Ta Kerei(Takerei) but as 'Gray'.

Nāku noa
