My name is Betty Peti Scott nee (Tewhata) I was born on the 31 01 1968, Thames hospital. My fathers name is Fred Pariare Tewhata my Mothers name is Joy terewai Tewhata nee(Tekata). I have an older sister who is Lesley Harris and an older brother Herbert Tewhata.
We have a half brother whos name is Honk Connor he is my fathers son, he was brought up by Uncle Hector Connor at present he is the only child that I know of from my father. My mother once told me shed had 3 children 2 boys and a girl I have never met her other children but would like to meet any one connected to my mother and her roots.She was brought up in Ngaruwahia, in the waikato and always took great pride in the taupiri maunga.My Parents house sits on the top of pah road, My Grandfather Nundad Sol and Grandmother Nunna Betty sold the land to my father for the mere sum of a one dollar coin. There own homestead sits below mum and dads.I havent visited the property for a long time I understand my brother and sister are renting this property and yes my initial thought is to sell as mum died intestate, closure is very important to me however memories will always be forever.
