I am looking for descendants of Captain William Young.
He was the Captain of the Brig Tranmore and he settled in the Hokianga New Zealand in the early 1800s. He arrived in New Zealand from NSW Ausralia with his wife whose maiden name was Davies, and two brother in laws. He died in the far north in 1867

hi, I just came across your message dated 11th Jan 2000 and wondered if you have moved on since then.

perhaps you now know Capt Young and his family were passengers on board the Tranmore - they arrived at the Hokianga in 1831 and his wifes name was Elizabeth Davis

Kia ora Cuz???? Im a decendant of William Young. Although Elizabeth Davis was not my great great great great great great grandmother. From my understanding Captain Young also had another wife: Obviously he had to have another wife because Im here! Im yet to clarify whether she was Chief Pomares' sister or daughter.

Anyway Captain William Young of the brig Tranmore lived in Koutou in the Hokianga. Apparently theres a whole heap of descendants up in the Hokianga and you may find them in Rawene, or more specifically in and or around the Motukaraka area. If you were to cross over via the ferry in Rawene you can see a church tha place is called Motukaraka.

William Young and his other wife- (my greatx4 nana) had a son and he was named Wiremu Hunia, which means William junior. Then William {junior} got married and he had a son who he called Tatana Hunia, Tatana married and then he had a son whom he called Hare(means Charlie), Hare's fathers first name "Tatana" became Hare's last name, then Hare Tatana got married and he had a son whom I called Granddad and his name was Ratahi Tatana. If you would like any more info you may phone me T.v Tatana 02102565866.

Goodluck and all blessings for your journey
