Looking for info on Charles E Taylor/Faumui family

Hey, my name's Jace Taylor. I'm looking for information on Charles E. Taylor. He married a lady named Emma Wolfgramm. If anyone has any information on him, I would like to hear about it. I was just making my family tree on here and I don't have any idea who is parents are.

Oh, and if anyone knows about the Faumui family line, my great grandmother was Nive Faumui, but that's as far as I can get for her side.

Thanks,
Jace

Hi my name is Vic Godinet. I believe that Charles Taylor was my grt,grt grandfather. My grandmother Henrietta Godinet nee Taylor was his daughter. I believe he had many children.I would appreciate any info re him and his family . I started out researching the Godinet family and have discoverd connections all over the world. Charles 's father Thomas also started a family in Nelson NZ in the late 1800/s.

Surnames: Taylor and Faumui
Hello Jace and to all. My name is Lora Taylor and my great grandfather is Charles Edward Taylor. My grandfather Nicholas "Nimo" Taylor was his son from Emma Wolfgramm. They had only two children, Nimo and Eva King nee Taylor. Grandpa Nimo married Nive Faumui from Fagaloa whose parents were Eneliko Faumui and Kalala ? (I forget her last name). Grt. grandma Kalala was from the Falefa village. Nimo and Aunty Eva however had half siblings from their dad (grt. grandpa Charles)...i remember an Aunty Jane (Sieni) who married a Ah-Mu, an Aunty Ietta, who I'm assuming is Vic's grandmother, and I heard that their was a half brother name Tapu..?? I need to talk to my dad again. Grandma Nive had only two other siblings....Aunty Ake and Uncle Sefo. They both migrated to NZ and they have both passed (2009). Aunty Ake's children, grandchildren and grt. grandchildren reside in NZ and Australia and some in Western Samoa and Utah, USA. Uncle Sefo was never able to marry and has no children of his own.

Hope this is helpful =)

According to the Cyclopedia of Samoa 1907, Charles Edward Taylor, the Government Interpreter in the Samoan High Court, was born in Matautu, Upolu, on 8 May 1871. He was adopted by Mr J E Alford. No names for true parents given.
In 1886 he was the interpreter for the British Consulate.
He taught Robert Louis Stevenson Samoan, and was referred to by RLS as "Charlie Taylor- the sesquipedalian young half-caste".ie someone prone to using big words. There is a photo of him in HJ Moors' book With Stevenson in Samoa.

Thomas Taylor was the father of Charles Taylor. Due to some scandal Thomas had to leave Samoa and went to NZ. He raised a family in Nelson. I have a photo given to me by a descendant of that family.It shows Charles and two of his daughters.( My grandmother 'Henrietta' and her sister Jane-- they would have been aged about 5-7 years old. Along with members of Thomas's family. They would have been Charles half siblings). The person who sent me the photo also identified Charles as the interpreter for RLS and also stated that Thomas Edward was from Liverpool England and was also a shipbuilder. Thomas also left this family and returned to Samoa in the late 1800--- early 1900's. Apparently when Thomas went to NZ Charles was adopted by a German family, sent to europe for his education and then returned to Samoa. He seems top be an interesting character who had a lot of children to many different woman.His father Thomas seems to have disappeared once he returned to Samoa.
