Can anyone identify this person or any of her details?
She arrived in New Zealand about 1862, most likely at Hokitika.
In 1880 she married a Maori Chieftain named Pakapaka. He adopted a Maori-fied version of Moorhouse (ie. Moroati) as his surname.
She died June 13th 1887 leaving two children, a girl 17 and a boy 16 both to a former marriage.
Does anyone know of these children?
Was Moorhouse her maiden name or that of her former husband?
Where did she come from (to N.Z.)? ex Australia?
The death cert says she was born in London and died age 47 at Arahura, Westland, NZ of a ruptured blood vessel in the abdomen.
Any help much appreciated.
