My family lived at 20 James Rd from 1966 for over 30 years.
Unfortunately I cannot tell you who was living there in 1953 and I cannot
think of anyone residing in the street who would have lived there then.
What you may want to try is the electoral roll for the area. Manurewa
would have been relatively small round then so if there is a roll
available for round that period it may not be a too arduous task.
