Details: Born in the village of Melbourn, in the county of Cambridgeshire, England about 1820. I landed in New South Wales in 1829, and have seen the rise of that and the neighbouring Colony of Victoria. I came to New Zealand in 1827 (maybe it should read 1837), and have remained here for the greater part of the time since.
(But he did go other places and seems to have settled more permanently during the 1860's.)
