Kia ora, do you have more information or whakapapa about Toheriri. My maternal grandmother was the daughter of Enoka Tunukoura Toheriri II and Te Aokauirangi TeOhaere; he was the son of Enoka Toheriri I who married Heni Kawhena. Lived at Waipiro Bay but he was connected to TeTeira Toheriri from Mahia. I also believe an Enoka Toheriri was on the original Trust deed for Tainui.
