Hey guys, my mum's last name is Tu'ungafasi and apparently she is part English which is from a guy named William Payne (not sure on the spelling of the last name) however he was married to Mary and had a daughter by the name of Lupe. The migrated from England however crashed near Tonga - so the story goes. If you guys have any information it would be much appreciated.

Three Payne brothers- Francis, William and Alfred came to Tonga as traders in the 1860s. They were born in the Channel Islands in Britain. They obtained leases of land from King George 1. They married Tongan women and also had other relationships. There are very many descendents.

Thank you so much for your reply. Is there any marriage records for any of the Payne brothers in particular William as well as their heritage in Britain. Any sort of information will be much appreciated. Thank you so much

Hi there - I am the Great, Great Granddaughter of Alfred Payn. Did you know by any chance the name of the Tongan lady he married? Or where I might find that information? All I can find is her first name is Oli. Cheers!
