William Apes was aboard a whaling ship headed for New Zealand where he settled and married Mata Punahere in the 1840's and they, together had many children one being my great grandfather Tiemi Apes whom had my grandfather Oscar Apes, his sister Daisy and another son who stayed in the South Island. My grandfather changed his surname to Epps.....there is a road named Apes Road in Karitane, Otago and, William Apes is buried in Karitane, Otago aswell

Hi Mark. If William Apes is your great great grandfather then you are most likely a relative of mine. I have some documentation on William Apes and his journey to New Zealand. Do you have an email address that i can contact you with?

In some of the documents i have found, your grandfather was a son of William and Kathleen. My great grandfather James (Tiemi) Apes and your grandfather Robert Apes are brothers but have different mothers. If you're interested, i can copy these documents and send them to you. I'd love to get to know my family.
