Kia ora koutou,
I was wondering if anybody had any information on this man. He is my babies great grandfather, (deceased) lived in Hastings and was married to Adalaide, we are not sure of her surname... possibly Hanita. They had 4+ children that we are aware of, Tuakana, Pop-eye, Sandra and Katie-Rose Kemp. Last we knew the whanau lived in Manuka Street, Hastings.

Kia ora Aubry,
It is my husband who belongs to the Edwards whanau, we're not sure if they were from Bridge Pa, his name is Sam, his father is Tuakana although I know him as General. It is my husband who seeks any information about his grandfather, Taylor, or his siblings...truly any help would be greatly appreciated.

Robert William Edwards - born 1808 Eng = Harata Wharehuihui
John William Edwards - born 1853 = Maraea Karetu?
Taylor Edwards - born 1896 died 4 Dec 1979 = Hanita
Taylor Edwards = Adelaide
Tuakana Edwards
Sam Edwards

This branch mainly settled in Te Hauke & Pukehou.

I descend through William Edwards, brother of John. I am the same Generation as Tuakana though I'm pretty sure I'm the same age as Sam, William was born in the 1830's, John was one of the younger siblings.

Kia ora Aubry,
I know this is going to sound a little duh-ish. But you mentioned two Taylors, and two wives. Are these the same people or different generations?
All of this is very exciting news. My husbands just gone out and I cant wait to show him.

Two generations of Taylor Edwards, plus "Popeye"
Tuakana's bro? and his son Taylor.

Taylor b 1896
Issue

Marge
Sandra
Taylor Jnr

NB: I did not know the wife of Taylor Jnr, but added adelaide from your info.

This family did live in Manuka Street, hastings, and were known to our family.

The various Edwards whanau managed shearing gangs throughout the Hawkes Bay & Wairarapa.

Harata Wharehuihui was also known as Puma and came from Porangahau near Waipuk. She and Robert, known as William Edwards (Whaler) were md by Rev.Wm Colenso in 1849 already having 5 children. According to my info, John was the 1st born, after his parents were married according to European custom.

Would appreciate your Family so I can add to what I have.

Most of my branch still live in Bridge Pa, another is in Wairoa,again another in Horohoro ? near Rotorua, and also a branch in Ratana, Wanganui.

I have not found a Edwards connection to the Kawhia/Taranaki lot though I do relate to them on my mothers side.

John Edwards received a NZ War medal for serving with the NZ Native contingent during the 1860's as did his brother Rueben.

Please make contact with me offline with any further info so I can absorb, peruse, and send on to my family via our own network that we have running, which they feel more confident in using.

My father Peter passed away in July this year and now I am on a mission to complete his whakapapa for the next generations.

Arohanui

Are you from the Taharoa whanau.If you can give a brief lineage on Private email, I can check my data and get back to you either on open forum or Private.

I also relate to the Te Huia clan, and went to school with Graham Te Huia in the 70's. Also relate to the Paki/Edwards line as well.

I went to school with Stacey Te Huia in the early 80's in Christchurch many moons ago. She would be in her mid thirties by now. Sorry I am not sure of her lineage.

Kia ora Material,
I know of 'Karaka'/Clarke in Ngati Porou whakapapa, Te Arawa, Ngapuhi Ngati Whatua and Tainui. I have found links to these whanau through various tipuna. Our search of the Edwards Line has come along great, our realisation was of whangai here and there which made everything a whole lot easier to read aye. We're loving it.
