He went on to found Ade∑mmra village on this donation and gave it into the care of one of his daughters so that he might be supplied with food in Kumase when he visited from Denyase in Amansie. A century later, in the reign of the Asantehene Osei Tutu Kwame, the Akwamuhene/Asafohene ≈bir∑mp≈n Kwaakye Kofi granted a part of the Ade∑mmra/Ade∑beba lands at ‘Darkwadwam’ (later Dakodwom village) to the Gyaasewahene Opoku Fr∑fr∑ when the latter performed the rites to secure the mena. Then at mid-century, during the tenure of the Asantehene Kwaku Dua, at least two historically identifiable office holders ‘hunted the elephant’ over land at Ade∑mmra/Ade∑beba allocated to them for this purpose by the then incumbent Akwamuhene/ Asafohene ≈bir∑mp≈n Akwawua Dente.

The weapon used was mpoatwa, a way of talking that asserted superiority by listing the shortcomings of another so as to ‘inflate oneself’ by comparison (huw mframa hy∑ ade). Kwaku Dua was impugned on the grounds that his father was only an ahenkwaa, and so his male line of descent boasted no ancestral ‘great names’ (aboadenfo≈). It was even suggested that Amma Sewaa was promiscuous so as to encourage scurrilous gossip about the identity of Kwaku Dua’s father. All this was symptomatic of the barbed relationship between the Asantehene and his once exiled and discounted successor-in-waiting.

She was living at Heman in the 1750s when she was given in marriage to the royal gun bearer Kwame Nkyera. Their daughter Akuntunku reinforced the Heman link when she married an ahenkwaa who was on close terms with the Nkwantananhene Boakye Yam Kumaa. Then, as we have seen, in or shortly after 1834 the Asantehene Kwaku Dua awarded Akuntunku’s son Kwasi Brantuo a part of the Heman lands together with the servant Sebe. Following these gifts, Kwasi Brantuo petitioned to have his lineage kin at Heman transferred to his own jurisdiction from that of Nkwantanan.
