In the 1907 Cyclopedia of Samoa there is an article and photo of Charles Selby Brunt, of Magia, Upolu. and a photo of his residence and store

He was born in Savaii in 1875 and educated at the Marist bros school in Apia. He learnt carpentering in Apia, then went to Auckland and learnt to be a baker. He returned to Samoa in 1899 and started a store. He married Miss Cornwall, daughter of the late Frank Cornwall- (who was involved in court cases) in 1902

There are 272 entries for Brunt , Samoa on www.familysearch.org
many of which are duplicates or mis-spellings

In Magiagi Cemetery, Apia are buried Freda Brunt, wife of T W Brunt of Apia, Western Samoa , died NZ Aug 1, 1944 aged 53 years
and Charles Selby Brunt born 2-2-1902
died 22- 2- 1949. This must be a son or maybe nephew of the other one

In the 1917 list of Aliens in NZ there is a John Baunt (probably Brunt) aged 18 rangemaker of Auckland

In the NZSG CD4 there are many Brunt entries, many of which match names of Brunts born in Samoa from www.familysearch.org

The original Brunt in Samoa appears to be Charles Mellor Brunt of Northumberland, England born 11 april 1826 who married Jane Ape or Vui in Samoa abt 1865,. He died 9 January 1884 according to www.familysearch. org

If you put all these together, and add family information, you will have a fairly full tree.
