  • I am the 2nd daughter of Tawio Emery. My dad was born at Taemaro, Northland NZ on 07/09/1923 and died Te Awamutu NZ, 29th April 1996. He was married to Topa Puri Samuel and they had 6 children. Their 3rd daughter, Lena accidentally drowned at Te Kopua in 1955, aged 19 months. We lived at Te Kopua for 7 yrs before moving to our house at Kihikihi. My dad retired in 1983 from the Justice Dept having reached the position of prison superintendent, the first Maori to do so. My dad was a very clever man and a dab hand at crosswords, especially cryptics - he says it was all that latin he was taught by the catholic nuns.
