it is a long time and I had forgotten I had posted this. Thank you for your response. We are related through Ponui's line and I am trying to find you on the information I have. We are descended through Ponui's child Lennie ( Rena Lena etc)Evelyn and her husband John Stewart Pattie. I am guessing that you are descended through either one of Lennie's siblings. I haven't got that line sorted but I have the names Humphrey, James, George and Mary Marea. Through our tupuna from William Nicholls and Hera Te Whakawa and their son Ponui and his brothers and sisters we must be related. My great aunt Eileen Pattie married Harris Ross he was descended from Charlotte Nicholls and Joseph Smallman I believe they were in fact cousins. Eileen is deceased and you may have known her. She did a great deal of work on the Ancestry Data Base of the Church My grandmother Laura was Eileen's sister and they and their siblings were also descended from James Ponui who was Charlotte's brother. I do hope you get this would appreciate sharing our family history.
Regards Judith
