Ebbett-does anyone know what ships the armed constabulary came out to nz on. William Ebbett came to NZ to fight in the maori wars.I know he married 25th mar 1871 in Tauranga to Anne Kirk and their first born William Henry was born there 18 april 1872.
These dates are after Gate Pa or Te Ranga but we know he went on to Taupo and then Taranaki. His brother Thomas Frederick, said he left England in 1867 for NZ. His half brothers left for NZ in 1875 and I have a record of their ships.
