GERRARD/HARATA Tiareti/Charlotte daughter of GERRARD Charles, wife of WAITOA Rota
Kia ora, I'm looking for information on Tiareti Harata also known as Charlotte Gerrard or a combination thereof. She was the wife of Rota Waitoa and later Renata Tangata, with Renata she had a daughter called Mereana Tangata. Her father was a whaler called Charles Gerrard, however in records I can only find her mother listed as "Maori" or unknown. I believe she was born on the East Coast and was most likely Ngati Porou. If anyone has any information on her Maori half such as confirmation of iwi, her hapu, marae, tupuna, etc please let me know via replying to this topic.
