Aloha and Welcome


`Ohana of Captain Edmund 
Saffery Senior, Kupuna Naehu 
and Kawaawaaiki Naehu

If you are a descendant of (Capt., Judge) Edmund Saffery originally from Upwell, Cambridgeshire, England who arrived in Ulupalakua, Maui, Hawaii in 1839 - this site was created with you and your `Ohana in mind!

The 2017 reunion on September 1-3 was held at the Wailuku Civic Center, Maui.  Another post-event T-Shirt order will be announced shortly so all 'ohana who want a 2017 shirt can get one. 

It was a stupendous event, with 700+ 'ohana in attendance. Mahalo for coming together and making this first reunion organized by the Association a great one!

Edmund Saffery arrived in Honolulu in 1839, at age 33, as captain of the first schooner which brought gold from San Francisco for E. Forster and was one of the captains of the whaling ships that first anchored near Olowalu, Maui.  After he had been in the islands for about five years, he married, on the island of Hawaii, Kupuna Naehu. "Kupuna" is also the Hawaiian term for grandparent or ancestor.  Whether or not she has another given name is not known.  The name "Kapuna" does appear on the marriage record.  Eleven days after his marriage, Edmund Saffery became a Hawaiian citizen, 3 June 1844. Together they had one child, Fanny.  (Naturalization, Book D, p. 11).   *ref. "Roots & Branches of Arthur Kapewaokeao Waipa Parker, Sr. & Eva Margaret Vieira" Published in 1989

Edmund's second marriage to Kupuna Kawaawaaiki (aka Kawaaiki) Naehu produced 13 issue; Edmund II., Henry, Caroline, William Gale, John Pueo, Thomas Edmund, Mary, Emma Victoria, Analani, Juliana, Charles Thomas, Helen, and Emalia Nellie.  We are now planning a reunion bringing together descendants of all of these Saffery lines.
