Looking for Gavin Wayne Hodson, b: 1947, Wanganui, NZ

Query by Nece

I am trying to locate a possible half brother of my husband's. Gavin Wayne Hodson was born in 1947 in Wanganui, New zealand. His parents were noted as Roy Thomas Hodson (my husband's father) & Iris Maureen Bertha Hodson (nee: Forward). Gavin was adopted out to person's unknown, and Roy & Iris were divorced in 1949. There may have been a further son born in 1949 but I do not have any info on this child. Iris later remarried to a Mr Atchison of Wanganui. She died in 1992 in Wanganui and on her death cert there is mention of 2x sons who were still alive (as at 1992), whose ages would correspond with the dates above.
If anyone has information that may help clarify this please let me know.

Hi there
My mother was Iris Maureen and was married to Graham Atchison. My eldest brother is Gavin. Then there was Trevor, Brent, Nigel (deceased at birth) and myself as the youngest Scott Graham Atchison. Just came across your post. My family is not close so unsure of Gavin age but seems to be around the right age. And my mother was a Forward from Palmerston North. Sure her death was around 1992 as well. Would like to hear from you further and maybe fill in the gaps :)

Hey that's great and thanks for responding. Very interesting in that perhaps Trevor may also be a half brother as well given he was born in 1949. It would be interesting to see if he too was adopted out or perhaps may have even been the child of Graham and Iris, and hence the divirce of Roy and Iris.
Is everyone scattered around NZ or have you all remained around the Palmerston North/Wanganui area? We are in the New Plymouth area and would be appreciative of any further info you have either by email of catching up personally.Were you aware of Gavins (and perhaps Trevors) adoption priort o reading my post? Has there ever been any talk of it prior within your family?
Looking forward to hearing back from you. Steve and Denise Hodson.
