Parata Heta-Te Kauwhata

Journal by wihongipekamawhanau

My great grandmother Meriana Kaio Muhanis 2nd marriage was to Parata Heta Te Kauwhata (The Heta and Hetaraka lines from Ngati-wai) who looked after both my grandmother Mereana and my great grandmother with a love far beyond their lives.

I am interested in this line because there were quite a few marriages and ours is only one line of many. There is much confusion over my great grandmother Meriana. Some link her to a marriage she never had to a Wiremu Tairua (although her sister Ihapera was married to him) and others link my grandmother Mereana to a Mere Kerepeti also.

My grandmother was Mereana Chris Galbraith...or in te reo, Mereana Kirihi Kerepeti. This is not Kerepeti for Gilbert although there was a 2 Mere Kerepetis linked to other family lines. SUch is life... learning is fun. Linking is so much better as it makes for a wider whanau.

Meriana Kaio Muhani - 1) Chris Galbraith 2) Parata Heta Te Kauwhata. Chris abandoned Meriana and Mereana so my grandmother was raised as a child with her mothers 2nd marriage.

Hi there,
I was wanting to know if Parata Heta Te Kauwhata may have been related to a Erika Kauwhata whose son was Manihera Kauwhta.
Look forward to hearing from you

My understanding is that the geneology for "Makarita Wharetomokia" is not commonly shared.
If there is a connection to Erika Kauwhata it is prior to 1824.
