His great grandmother Hera (photographed below), was the daughter of Ngaere Minarapa Tika-Stanaway and Irahapeti (or Rihi) Tanapo Stanaway.
His 2G grandmother Ngaere (married to Irahapeti known as Rihi) was the daughter of Captain John James STANAWAY and Witaperene (known as Black Ann).

If any Maori is reading or will read this, I state that as a pakeha, meaning "...anybody of Anglo-Celtic origin (England, Scotland, Ireland, and Wales) and, as the integrated, Northern Europeans (Scandinavians, Germans, and Dutch), white Americans, Canadians and South Africans". source: Pakeha, it's origin and meaning I respect the Maori traditions and do not wish to appropropriate genealogical information unecessarily, but am truly trying to find my husband's whakapapa for the sakes of our children.
