Kia Ora all,
Sarah Timu (aka Timo)(Ngai Tahu) b abt1800 - 1810 Ruapuke Island, was sent when she was abt 12 yrs old to north Is to be a bride for a chief (this was to have made ties between the two tribes)but when she got there the chief who was old had died and the tribe didn't want her and put her out that is when she meet John Lee they had a son and he brought her back to Ruapuke Island.
Our Whakapapa goes back to the Takitimu canoe
A picture of Sarah is on the wall at Ngai Tahu in Christchurch I believe it is in the Whakapapa unit

Does anyone know who the whanau are in Bethlehem or Tauranga? I would love to know more about Timu's history, as I have found I connect back to her through her daughter Elizabeth's first daughter Irene.
Any help at all would be great! I have some information about her children and grandchildren but nothing about her.
I know your post was a long time ago but your email no longer works so if you are still on this site and have this information I would be very keen to know it please? I link back to Sarah/Timu through her daughter Elizabeth and her eldest daughter Irene.
