Looking for the Brunton family from the Wade, Silverdale Auckland New Zealand in 1880s

Archie Brunton is my grandfather and attended the Wade School in 1890 in Silverdale Auckland, New Zealand. Before 1900 the family left the Wade and went farming at Hikuai near Thames, Coromandel in New Zealand. At nearby Tairua he met my grandmother, Mathilda Morrison and in 1915 my father, George Archibald Reuben Brunton was born.
Archie left for service in World War one in 1916 and was killed near Ypres in Belgium in 1917.
