Surnames: MARMON, BRUCE, WHITE, MANING, CADDELL
A television production company is looking for descendants of early Pakeha-Maori. By this we mean Pakeha who settled in NZ pre-1840, and who married Maori, lived as Maori, fought alongside their adopted iwi and very often received the moko.

At the moment we are especially trying to contact descendants of Jacky Marmon (Hokianga), Frederick Maning (Hokianga), George Bruce (Bay of Islands) James Caddell (Stewart Island) and Barnet Burns, also known as George White (Poverty Bay).

My gt grandfather was John Baker, an Irishman, who arrived in the Hokianga in 1828. He married Maro, of the Ngati Rauwawe, a subtribe of Ngapuhi, of Waima, Hokianga.
John died in 1869 aged 75, according to his death certificate, puting his birth year at 1794, somewhere in Ireland - again according to a death certificate of one of his children.
John was a sawyer, and helped to build the first Catholic Church in NZ, at Purakau on the Hokianga Harbour, the then Catholic base of Bishop Pompallier. This same church has since been moved to Te Tii, and now houses the remains of Bishop Pompallier.
John and Maro had 6 or 7 children from 1831 to 1854.

Surnames: CLAPHAM, HANSEN, TOLLIS, ATKINSON, MOUNTAIN
George CLAPHAM, Master of Whalers, is said to have been Maori or part Maori, ( but no proof,) he married Hannah HANSEN in1837, at Pahia, Northland. She was born 11 Jan. 1817, the daughter of Thomas Hansen & Elizabeth Atkinson TOLLIS,
We have not found the death of George Clapham, he is said in the Cyclopaedia of N.Z. to have been lost at sea, in the Pacific.
Children of George CLAPHAM & Hannah HANSEN , were Mary Ann Amelia 1838, Thomas George 1841, & Hannah Elizabeth 1844.
George does show as Master of shipping on the NSW coast, & as master of ships arriving in N.Z. Northland area.( cant remember the titles as I write this. )
