Looking for KAHUPO

Query by hanrahanf

Mary ann KAHUPO is mentioned in a letter dated 11/02/1858 that was written by Robert Munhall, the son of Hugh MUNHALL a shipwright of the Hokianga,New Zealand.

In this letter he gives instructions to William Morris to "leave my picture to my mother" and money from the sale of personal items and for work done for Bob (Robert) Hardiman to be "divided among my relatives Maria,Mary,Kate,Riri AND Mary Ann KAHUPO".

Another letter written by William Morris at the same time names the mother of the 4 Munhall sisters mentioned above as Mariana.

Land court minutes also note that William Smith (who bought a half share of land with Hugh Munhall called Punehu along the Hokianga River)) left his half share of land to his son Joseph HURST along with Mary Ann Kahupo. This was witnessed by Robert Hardiman and Hugh Munhall in 26/09/1841.

I have read somewhere (GeneoNZ ?) that a Mariane H Rangihaerepo married a Hugh MUNHALL who was the daughter of a Te Whakatohea chief named Rangihaerepo who signed the Treaty of Waitangi.

Another Mariane Hineahua Rangihaerepo (aka Meri Makarina Hineahua,a daughter of the same chief) is also noted as having married Henry Colin Balneavis in 1859 at Parnell,Auckland. They also had 4 daughters and 1 son.

Are they one and the same?

Welcome to FamilyTreeCircles. All I can offer you at this stage is the following websites to aid in your research. Perhaps you might have more success with replies to your MUNHALL journals.

Whakapapa Club NB This website is under reconstruction at the moment.

Register as a new user of GenealogyWise then start a discussion at their New Zealand Genealogy board.

Register as a new user of Rootschat then scroll down to their Research in other countries board, and click on New Zealand childboard.

Register as a new user of Ancestral Search Proboards. Mostly NZ research but site is becoming worldwide.

New Zealand Genealogy Forum

NB I did a global search of the above sites and the surname KAHUPO was not found at the time of writing.
