A book called "Te Mata - Aotea" by R.T. Vernon and C.R. Buckeridge has historic information about the area and families and there is 1-1/2 pages on the Waitere whanau (their Marae is Te Papatapu). I purchased a copy of this book from Raglan Book Shop for about $10.00 - would you like me to scan you the pages concerning the Waitere's? I go to Raglan quite often and could see if there are any copies left.
