Kia Ora Lucy. My name is Glenise Edwards. My mother was Mary Taputoro. Her father and your grandfather Peter Manu were brothers. My mother and Aunty Marea are cuzns so that makes us cuzns. Would love to help you in your quest as I think it would be rather exciting to go tramping down the same awa. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.I am on this site cos my sister is registered to this network. Hope to hear from you. Ma te wa.

Hi, the Keenan whanau played a big part in Taranaki from around the 1820's. Then moved down around Kapiti and settling at the top of the South Island after the 1832 heke. Maybe have a look at Puke Ariki and The Prow websites.
My 6x great grandfather was Potaka Taniwha of Te Ati Awa.
Hope this helps.
