Hello Dianna, welcome to the boards.

What else can you tell us about Samuel James?


Reggie Report 22 Jul 2013 11:39

How do you link to him?

Did he marry?

Bear in mind that, in England/Wales, there were no penalties until 1875 for not registering births

Have you looked for baptism info?

Did he stay in New Zealand and die there?

If so, I believe burial ( or is it death? ) records indicate how many years they have lived in New Zealand.

I found this type of information recorded, but like you have not found a list showing my link's entry into NZ c. 1859
