Worser Heberley and Te Wai Nahi

Worser Heberley and Te Wai Nahi

Many Pākehā whalers in the Cook Strait area before 1840 married Māori women. Worser Heberley, who worked out of Te Awaiti in Tory Channel, married Te Wai Nahi, a prominent Te Āti Awa woman from the Kāpiti Coast. Some of the descendants of their two daughters and six sons still live in the Marlborough Sounds.
