"Looking for John NOBLE of Waikato, New Zealand

I\'m researching John Noble of Waikato (c. 1870-1910). He married Paeroa Te Koi and they lived at Huarau papakainga, Otaua/Maioro in the Franklin District.

His mother was called Raihahakume, Raiha or Hakume and his father was also called John Noble. His mother\'s tribe was Ngati Mahanga.

John Noble (jnr) was also known as Manuao Nopera.

Rihitoto Newton or Waretini

Kia ora my name is Edda Phyllis Noble. My Waikato family believes that:-

Rihitoto WETINI/NEWTON was the eldest child of my great grandfather John NOBLE of Waiuku, Waikato.

Rihitoto's mother was Amiria WETINI. We are told that Rihitoto married THOMPSON. They had no children of their own so they whangai Aubrey THOMPSON (nephew of Rihitoto's husband).

We have a family photo of Rihitoto and her father John NOBLE and others.

John Noble married my great grandmother Paeroa TE KOI who also had a daughter (Ihipera) prior to her marriage to John NOBLE. My grandfather Jack NOBLE is Rihitoto's half brother.

I'm doing my father's whakapapa so would like to include Rihitoto's information as well. I am also trying to trace the family of John NOBLE (Rihitoto's father). I have that his whakapapa is:

Mother: Raiharangihakume; Raiha; Rangihakume. Father: John NOBLE (snr - pakeha).

Unsucceeded shares of my grandparents and his siblings exsist in a block called Moerangi and we believe these shares come from John NOBLE mother Raiharangihakume.

Can anyone help me please? Also I would like to talk to those whanau who have posted Rihitoto Wetini whakapapa.

A te wa, Edda
