A probate file for George is available at the Auckland office of Archives NZ:
http://www.archway.archives.govt.nz/ViewFullItem.do?code=688...

The 1957 electoral roll (Piako electorate), all still at the Tramway Rd house:
Albert, now retired
Annie, housewife
Leonard, joiner
Phyllis, married
Stanley, moulder

The NZ Archives has an intriguing file listed from 1962:
"Ronald William Norton an infant suing by his Guardian ad Litem Leonard Albert Norton of Hamilton, joiner v Ralph Michael Sutton of Putaruru, farm-hand"
This is the link to the file listing:
http://www.archway.archives.govt.nz/ViewFullItem.do?code=233...
(Note: that this file is restricted and would require special permission to access)

The 1963 Hamilton electorate gives, living at 191 Tramway Rd,
Albert, retired
Ann, married
Stanley, moulder

Leonard (joiner) & Phyllis are now living at 22 Masefield Drive, also in the Hamilton electorate.

The 1969 Raglan Electoral roll is also interesting:
191 Tramway Road - Albert, Annie & Stanley
193 Tramway Road - Ronald William Norton (painter) & Nola Joan Norton (married)
22 Masefield Drive - Leonard & Phyllis

Annie died in 1974:
1974/34733 Norton Ann 3 August 1884

Albert died in 1976:
1976/37270 Norton Albert DOB:11 June 1883

Both were cremated at Hamilton Park, Hamilton.

Albert's probate file is at Archives in Auckland:

Annie's probate file is also at Archives:
http://www.archway.archives.govt.nz/ViewFullItem.do?code=166...

Stanley died in 1975:
1975/27694 Norton Stanley DOB:13 October 1918
Stanley was also cremated at Hamilton Park

Stanley's probate file is at Archives in Auckland:

The 1978 Hamilton East electoral roll shows the following:
Leonard & Phyllis at 22 Masefield Dr, Leonard is now retired.

Clifford Charles NORTON (painter) & Janne Marshall NORTON (housewife) living at 191 Tramway Rd

Phyllis died in 1978:

There are two probate files for Phyllis, one lists her as a widow, one as a married woman:
http://www.archway.archives.govt.nz/ViewFullItem.do?code=166...

Hope that helps. The probate files may well contain further info.
