Posted by clivet on 01-04-2011 13:30

We lost connection with our kui who later on moved to Taranaki & had other families. It appears she is kui to the Tamati whanau. Would like to know more about Mere including her parents.

She has brothers and sisters from the Maunganui o teao in the Waimarino south of our Maunga Ruapehu. The people of this area are known as Uenuku, Patutokotoko, Ngati Maringi, Tamakana, Ngati Rangi o Paerangi.

Some of her descendants whanau names living here are ;
Makatea - Raukawa
Moke - Te Oro(Ti Oro) - Bishop
Tonihi - Te Iwimate - Hiroti - Renata
Winiata - Kakahi - Wairea - Wallace - Haitana
Kara(maene) - Rihia - Chadwick - Ponga - Ashford - Hapuku
Waho - Taura - Phillips(Piripi) - Rongonui(Te Whitu)

These are big families and not all names have been mentioned

I've been doing research on Harcourt Richard Aubrey, the first Magistrate of Whangarei, and hit up on the name you mention in the family tree at the bottom of this page:,_No._3/History_and_traditions_of_the_Taranaki_coast%3A_Chapter_IX,_p_111-148/p1

If this is the same person, it appears her mother was Ua Rewa, and her father most likely Harcourt Aubrey.
