Edmondsallan - I have previously mentioned that I am a direct descendant Of john samuel edmonds Eldest son - Samuel John . Among the edmonds papers that i hold in trust some very old ancestral charts , some how further on has been typed up & attached to the notes on the Maori " Paramount chief " of the Ngapuhi
" Rahiri" I cannot vouch for their accuracy, however they seem to be correct in very little search I carried out into this maori's lineage . Many of you are descendants of the " Arthur Edmonds " family so this may be of some assistance or at least knowledge for you . The chart is as follows __________ Rahiri m Ahua -iti ( 1st wife )
Eldest son - Uenuku kuare m Kare-ariki ( " " )
" " - Maikuku (dau) m Hua-takaroa
" " - Te Ra m Whaka-kopapa
" " - Kamama m Papatu
" " - Papa-roa m ( not known )
" " - Ripia m Takare
" " - Tapua m Kawe-hau
Patu-one ( eruera Mahihi ) Nene ( Tamati Waaka )

I am still sorting out 7th, 8th & a few 9th generations of this maori ancestra line from arthur's marriage to Erana kaire and their adopted first child " Mesheck Edmonds " I am noticing in General that the maori edmonds descendants are being researched, more questions , etc than the other children of John samuel edmonds who married europeans . I must admitt even though I have been researching our Edmonds family for over 40 years , the maori side seem to have many more mokapunas which I have reseached so far up to the 9th generation .for over 30 yrs My last 2 books of over 450 pages with excellent details on all, I concentrated on the European side . The No 1 volume has taken over 12 years . and even goes right back in time to before the iceage in BC & forward to 2009 . In general now the proven " DNA " is known it has made interesting research My dream is to see a total combined " Edmonds Family Tree" So far in NZ alone we have over 13,000 ": Edmonds " who are related to " John Samuel Edmonds . Of others who are in other lands are many in number . I have been contacted from " Edmonds " relations from , India - France- Yugoslavia -Holland - Germany - - Argentina - Chile - Pacific Islands - even in Russia & Norway and of course the two main countries Great Britian & USA America , both these last two mentioned have more related edmonds than our own Kiwi land Many Many of them are just like you & me ( wonderful People ) seeking more Knowledge on their family tree I have lost count of the number my research has assisted to attain knowledge on the " Edmonds Clan " regards to all------ edmondsallan

edmondsallan- thank you - Nixpt. however my part is small , compared to the future thinking and suggested way to go with our family ancestry and how many of the extended family in centuries to come will understand their ancestry . " Samuel John Edmonds " eldest son of original descendant " John samuel Edmonds " should be getting all the cedit . Thank you once again - regards -edmondsallan
