Thank you for what you wrote but have all this as I say we have been on it for 15 years and can not crack it yet. We have all papers past in formation but have nothing for Aussie as yet . Why I say this is he would have come out at a time of poverty and he had money when he got to Wellington so we think he must have done OK at the Gold fields in Aussie but can not find any reference to him We have his married cert but is hard to read but the date could be 29th or 19th. They had to get permission to marry as she was too young . We have no information on his family back in Ayr Scotland. Thank you for this it is most appreciated
