Surnames: HUNKIN, TUITELE
My father, Benjamin Albert Tuitele aka "Penekila" was born in Leone, Tutuila, American Samoa on February 1, 1919 to Epati and Saine Tuitele. My father passed away September 7, 1992 in Honolulu, Hawaii.
At that time, his younger sister- Tina Paopao, helped me trace back our family tree. I am interested in tracing my grandmother's family's heritage back to England. (I remember my father telling me that we could trace family roots back to England!) Saine's maiden name was Hunkin. She was the daughter of Mele Faive and Matthew Hunkin. According to my Aunty Tina, Matthew Hunkin's ethnicity was English/Chinese and he worked as a Soap maker and Shepherd. (Ok, working as a Shepherd in England but not in American Samoa! I didn't see any sheep while on my visit to American Samoa in 1985.) If anyone knows the Tuiteles, Faives or Hunkin families living in American Samoa, I'd appreciate any information. Thank you! Deb Tuitele

Surnames: Hunkin
Hi, Whilst looking on the net for information re Matthew Hunkin for my friend Lillay, Lillay family has known that Matthew was a missionary from Cornwall UK, and that he was with the London Missionary Society, I found the following that may be of interest and backs up this belief.(Matthew's name appears in text below...)

Members of Evangelical Groups 1797-1860
This section includes a few of the official missionaries, both lay and ordained, sent to the Pacific Islands before 1860. Biographical details cover place of birth, education, and occupational status at the time of joining, as well as the services they contributed to the missions.
I. London Missionary Society
Elijah Armitage (1780- ?), born in Manchester, England. He was a congregational cotton manufacturer and artisan missionary on Tahiti 1821-23, Moorea 1823-33, and Rarotonga 1833-35. Samuel Harper (1770-1819) grew up in Manchester. Harper was a mechanic missionary on Tongatapu from 1797-1800. Matthew Hunkin (1815-88) was a member of the mission church and helper resident on Tuluila and Manu’a (1841-49). John Youl (1773-1827) was born in London. He was a Calvinist Methodist itinerant preacher and minister. He served as a minister in Tahiti from 1801-07.

Hello Louise,
Thank you! I found that same article! I was able to gather more information with the dates given in the article. I've used Google.com to gather information about the Hunkin Family in Megavissey-Cornwall, England.
Aloha,
Deb
