I would appreciate any information regarding the Rees/Murrell/Styles surnames as they appear in a list on this site. I am not Maori nor are my parents or Grandparents but it turns out I have 1x cousins who are. I am curious about the Murrell/Styles connections as Murrell is my maiden name, Styles is a paternal Grandmother and Rees is my mothers maiden name. I have tried to contact the owner of the 'list' but they haven't updated the site for a few years now. Thomas Hayes Gibson REES is my Great Grand Uncle and Tupona Marie Moana was his wife. So, thanking you in advance.
