I would like to know if anyone can help me find my GGGGrandfathers parents?
My GGGGrandfathers name is Donald Stuart/Stewart and has Irish/Scottish blood I believe.
He was born about 1819 in Scotland, U.K. and died in Hastings, New Zealand. Unknown date
It was believed he sailed from Scotland on a whaling ship to New Zealand via Australia. He traversed inland on the East coast of New Zealand for work and married a Maori cheifs daughter Merehoka Takamoana for her land dowry about 1844 in Hastings, New Zealand. They had a son. Panapa Tuari.
