Kia ora Nicky,
I too have sent a email to your brother. I am the caretaker of my family whakapapa which is a great honour and I am finding some of the discovery very fascinating.
Thanks so much for your response and help.

Kia ora te whanau Watene

I am a Watene and I was one of the whanau that was involved in the Watene reunion 1992/3 in Kaihu and in accordance to the registrar in Dargaville, Te Arani Maata Pirimona was her name as registered.
On another note, we are still trying to link the Watene whanau here to the whanau in the Ngati Maru area. I would'nt mind some help there too.
Tambo 12G I am on that line under Hipiriona raua Ko Te Arani Watene. My father in law was Te Whitu (Joseph) Watene. I loves this and thanks to this awesome sight, for with out it wewould be still runing around centuries later. kia oara ano

Kia ora,
Some difficult questions to answer but in a simple term, the Tainui descent from Hoturoa to [13 generations] Reitu where she married Ueoneone. Then down to Waimirirangi, the purported queen of Ngapuhi.

That is how it happens but there is a Kurahaupo descent [6 generations] that joins this line as well and....

Coming in from the side is the Ngati Whatua link at Tauramoko= Te Hauangiangi down to Te Awha= Ngatitaha.....

So.......

Pi.

Kia ora Whanau,
I couldnt help but read about the whanau Watene and it sparked a flashback in my mind that I have some notes on the Watene Whanau of Hauraki in my whakapapa... the following is what I hold:

Taranaki = Tupeka Te Whakamau (N, Tupaea) had Hemi Miha and Hema Te Ao Watene (1821-1913 aged 92)
Hema lived around Coromandel for most of his long life and had 3 families:
To Parewhakarangi had Ritihia, Hoera and Ropiha;
To another (Unknown) had Ahurangi, Te Aumihi (married Wihona Hapi) and Parauri Jack;
To Ngapera Ihipera Aporo Turei had Pare Hemotitaha and Hanateiha Titikawhena.

Pare Hemotitaha Watene was painted by Lindauer.

Hema Watene's brother Hemi had a Illigitimate son to Tapita Rangiao of the Te Urikaraka Hapu of Kaiaua.
I hope this helps

WOW what can I say - Reading all this Whakapapa is not only very confusing but very very interesting. My great Grandmother was Lena who lived in Gisborne most of her days and my family (Watene) have the name Pirimona all through it aswell. Not too sure about the other variations that you have all mentioned though. My grandfather has passed and i am very thankful to you all for the informtion that we have managed to trace back so far. Pare Watene (great pic) was also direct family of my own and another famous lindauer painting was of a woman with short hair and a baby on her back this baby was one of Pare Watene's children (apparently) the lady in the pic (her name slips me) was good friends with Pare and Godfrey Lindauer found it rare to find a woman from the tribe to have short hair so asked to have her sit for him with Pare's child. So I have been told any way. Please keep up with the forum it is fantastic to read and I am learning alot

Kia Ora,

I too am a descendant of Mita Watene, my name is Nicky Watene and Mita is my great great great grandfather. I come from the line of his son Pirimona (whom I have also named my son after this great man) This is my whakapapa:
Taramauroa ________________Kirieka
Watene Te Koau_____________Ani Te Kokihi
Mita Watene________________Kataraina Matene
Pirimona Watene____________Whakamura Heteraka
Iraia Watene_______________Rose Paraone/Mckyver
Elias Watene_______________Sarah Connor (from the Ngati Paoua peeps)
Tiwai Watene_______________Ann Johnson/Neri
Nicola Watene______________Te Rereka
Alamein Pirimona Wanoa

My dad was also named after Chief Tiwai of the Ngati Maru tribe.
I have whakapapa that dates back to 1300ad please feel free to email me and I can forward this onto you. I can not tell you how proud we are of our heritage, speaking for my bro's and sis's and cousins. We have always been taught where we come from and every now and then run into relatives living in Brisbane, sydney & hamilton. We have a great lineage.

Hi Nicky

I am also a descendant of Mita Watene. My father was Philip Eddie Matene Watene, son of Lena Watene aka Rina Paraone Watene. The name Watene Te-Koau is apparently listed on the Treaty of Waitangi. We have similar ancestry:

Watene Te-Koau
Mita Watene 1825 - Kataraina Matene 1838
Pirimona Watene 1866 -
Lena (Rina) Watene (my grandmother)

Matene te Nga was Kataraina's father. Kataraina's son was Pirimona and my father's grandfather. My dad was brought up with his grandparents until he was 12 before being sent to live with his mother Lena who had remarried and was living in Te Karaka.

Matene te Nga was a direct descendant of the Hoturoa who was captain of the Tainui canoe on it's voyage to NZ. He was also one of the few survivors of the Totara Pa Massacre in 1821 led by Hongi Hika and became a Ngati Maru chief. He lived at Kirikiri near Thames.

Can you please send me any information that you have? I would really appreciate help trying to put the pieces together.

Thanks!
Shelley

Hi Kaaran,
surprised I haven't run into you sooner as I'm a member too. Born into Dinsdale Hamilton ward now living in Sydney. But I wanted to check I've always been taught the Matene Te Nga was the first to join in our family, quite special as he was the only one to survive the massacre as a young boy!! anyways drop me a line on this

Nicky
