Maraea Morris was the daughter of an Irish whaler and a high-born East Coast woman. She was one of a group of Māori captured by Te Kooti in 1868. She escaped and lived in Gisborne, where a friend later convinced her to join the Salvation Army. She served as colour-sergeant of the Gisborne corps, carrying its flag at the head of church parades.
