About Hualani Ahung

Hualani Ahung (1844–1906) had a Chinese father and Cherokee-Hawaiian mother. As customary at the time, she also took a Christian first name for her baptism. Her mother, a descendant of King Kūaliʻi of Oʻahu, remarried Honolulu postmaster Arthur. P. Brickwood, so Hualani's name was anglicized to "Rebecca Brickwood" on official records for her wedding in 1866. Her Hawaiian name comes from hua lani which means "offspring from heaven" in the Hawaiian language.

In 1866, she married Rufus Anderson Lyman who founded the Paʻauhau Sugar Plantation Company. They had fifteen children, many of whom would become influential in different ways.
