GREY/CUMBERPATCH/HAITI, Margaret: Searching for my family

Kia Ora
MY name is Robyn Grey and i along with several of my brothers and sister were fostered out when we were babies. I now have a son and would like to give him some idea of where he comes from in terms of my birth parents.
My mothers name is Margaret, she had several last names including Grey, Cumberpatch and Haiti. All i know is that there is suppose to be family in Opotiki or surrounding areas. I have met her once and then lost contact...
She had several children including Micheal, Jamie, Cranston, Angelina and James.
If any one has any ideas please help

Kia ora Halo75,

Could you let us know which name is her maiden name?

My name is Angelina Grant and I am interested in finding out about my relatives also due to having children of my own. Robyn Grey is my sister and I was lucky enough to have contact with her unitl we were about 14 years old and those memories I cherish. Hey Robyn please contact me again so we can get to know each others exsisting Whanau.

I believe our mothers name was PATRICIA MARGARET PAEA KAA HATI also known to have the following surnames GREY, WOOD, CUMBERBATCH.

Her mother was MABEL HATI(WOOD) I believe she worked at Auckland Hospital and lived in west auckland.

Last known address for PATRICIA was 130 Haverstock Rd, Mt Albert Auckland.

I never thought finding family would be this hard and heart breaking. I hope someone can shed some light on this matter and help my sister and myself find exactly where our Maori roots are held.

Kiaora Halo, don't give up, I'm the same, my whanau have been searching for over 20yrs now and still have no concrete links to our roots, but little bits and pieces will pop up along the way, time is a wonderful healer for info to emerge, sometimes when you least expect it! naku noa.
