I am looking for a Mary King born in 1928. Says on the birth certificate born in Clevedon. She gave away a daughter in Otahuh, who was born on the 2 of November 1962.. Was adopted to a couple on the 14 of december 1962. The name given as written on the birth certificate is Mary King as well. There are only those names present. No middle names. I am near to the end of my search given that the variations of the name .. Mere and Kingi are making searches unhelpful. Any help would be greatly appreciated. please contact me on mozzylicious@hotmail.com

Kia Ora Mozzy84.

I know the area and the surname. I believe King and Kingi are the same Whanau, they live there. There's a small white church on a hill, you'd pass it if you were heading for Kawakawa Bay. I hope that helps.
