By comparison with the distribution of population in the homelands, there were generally fewer English than might be expected and considerably more from Ireland and especially Scotland.

Hi, I don't know if this is of any help but currently looking at one of my family tree lines. William Henry Johnson (1836-1876) was a brother of my GG-Grandfather EJT Johnson. The parents of both these men were John and Elizabeth Johnson who came to NZ on the Clifton ship from Kent, England, arriving in Wellington 17 Feb 1842. If these dates fit, I'm happy to be contacted.

William Henry Johnson was my GG-Grand Father and emigrated to New Zealand from England. I would very much like to contact or be contacted by Jean Taylor. We have always wanted to know what happened to William Henry and Evangeline and her siblings.
