Dawe family and other Hawaiians

I'm a Devon Dawe descendant, my ancestors coming from Plymouth Sutton. In researching family history I have discovered through a DNA test that I have Polynesian ancestry. After further research I have discovered that a large number of Polynesians travelled to England as ships crew and tourists in the 19th century, working as 'kanakas'. Some of these fathered children here, and I am descended from one of these. I wonder if there are any other Devon Dawes that have found Polynesian blood in their DNA?
