Tena Koutou nga uri o Porourangi

If anyone has any information about these whanau, could they please get into contact with me please?

My mother's maternal grandfather was Matahaere Koia from Tikitiki and he had my grandmother (Ema Koia) with Merengaika Tangira, who had ties to the Ngerengere, Wi Repa whanau. My grandmother then married Whakataha Katae, whose mother was Whakaara Rangihuna and father was Bus Katae.

What I would like to know if anyone out there knows or has ties to these whanau, as I am very confused about who is from where and all that.

Kia ora hearty nati,
I dont have much knowledge of your whanau connections, but for the Tangira whanau of Te Kaha and the Rangihuna whanau of Hicks Bay/ Te Araroa, but I can ask my family if you'd like.

peaceful regard
Jacqui

The Wirepa whanau is from Hicks Bay, Doc Wirepa he is an Accountant working in Tauranga, I am sorry I cannot tell you which firm he works from now, his brother is Rongo Wirepa, you may be able to contact Rongo thru Te Aute College as they still continue to support the college. To find out more. Sorry I cannot help you any more as I live in Perth and my father has now passed away and he would have know how to contact them.

I think everyone in Gizzy knew Buster Katae, he died 14 yrs ago, and as far as I know, they took him back to Tokomaru Bay to be buried, or Tikitiki, I can't remember. He was a very well off man in terms of land, money and what not, but spent most of his life living out on the streets of Gisborne, I believe a good thirty yrs. I heard he was also a police informant on the streets but not too sure. Anyone who use to live in Gizzy around my age or older would remember him, a bit of a folk legend in his time. He's probably best remembered for the time he found a whole bag of stolen money, I think it was in the thousands, of which he gave the whole lot over to the cops. You can probably tell he wasn't a very materialistic person, although very eccentric.

Kia Ora Hearty Nati,
My wife is a Koia - June, her father was Matenga (Tikitiki), I believe that they had a large family (19). Some of her uncles & aunts include, Rua I believe the eldest, Kuini, Riripiti to name a couple.

Will watch this space(from oz)with interest as my wife is certainly keen to know more details concerning the whanau.

Tena ano
The whakapapa I posted you for Te Whanau a Kahurautao hapu of Te Whanau a Apanui will provide you as full a response on the WiRepa whanau as you'll get for the moment. The additional material I sent you separately on the Tangira whanau should provide you with a start on that side which is from Te Whanau a Maruhaeremuri hapu.
Tangira Pohoi Te Otatu married Hariata WiRepa and gave rise to the Tangira whanau.
Dr Tutere WiRepa settled in Hicks Bay and it his mokopuna who are referred to in one of you replies.
Tuhitaare WiRepa married Rangikohere Parekowhai from Te Aitanga a Mahaki and had George WiRepa who married Margaret Kearns and it is their whanau who are found in Aria and Waikato.
Hariata, Tutere and Tuhitaare were sister and brothers to my grandmother Ewa.

Kia ora Te Paetahi
This is my first post.
My Name is Tuwaerokura Hoeta, my mother was Mabel Ngawai Hoeta, her mother was Rangikohera(e) Parekowhai Martin, she was married to John Lowry, my mum was an only child, but she had 1/2 brothers, George Wirepa, Charlie Campbell, and John Dixon this one I'm a bit vague on. He still has a daughter in Aucks, my cousin Ramai (Rosie). I was very excited to read your posting as I have no information on Parekowhai, I think she had 3 sisters, Irehapete, Pohaere, and Kaweanna. They were connected to the Otewa Pa, I have a photo of them, taken there apparently. I'm keen to hear anything further you might have to add.
