Toheriri (Te) Teira
Kia Ora Whanau,I'm trying to link (Te)Teira Toheriri to my mum's Whakapapa Her father is Enoka Toheriri married Mere Katene Tuhou.
Te Teira married Ema Nohopari. Both were born around 1810/1820 they had six children (Mere-Hera-Wairau-Roa-Rare-Rewi)His father is Paihau and Mother Inumia did they have other children?
Kia ora, while this might not help much, there is a grave in the Ruawharawhara(Opoutama) Urupa with the surname Toheriri. My late husband's mother was a Wairau, they were off the Toheriri Line. As far as I am aware, this line was direct descendents of Rongomaiwahine and her first husband,Tama Takutai. Best contact for you, would be from the Mahia district, as this is where a lot of whanau is from. Sorry not much help otherwise,
kia ora ano... my husbands family desended from te teira's son wairau... there is information available from a whakapapa/history book called horouta... it is composed by rongowhakata halbert and published by his whanau... it is a thick little book but if you like to study geneology then this book holds a few goodies in regards to the toheriri whanau... another way to find hidden whakapapa is to trace any inherited land via the maori land courts... i'll ask a few of his relatives and see if i can help you a little more... good luck till then.
