Looking for Stephen Ellis from Newfoundland Canada

Question by 1929ernie

I am looking for help with information about my g.g. grandfather Stephen ELLIS from Newfoundland Canada.
Born about 1843/44/45 and married Sarah Ferguson KELLY 2 Dec 1872 in New Zealand.
I believe he was a marnier and his parents were Stephen ELLIS and Ann PHELAN/WHALEN.
Did his parents go to New Zealand also and was he marnier?
Any help with dates and info would be gratefully received

maybe you could contact Diellis, who wrote on 2 Jan 2006:
Stephen Ellis Master Mariner
... In August, 1844, Stephen Ellis was born in St. John's, Newfoundland to Stephen and Ann (nee Phelan/Whalen) Ellis.
In 1872, he married Sarah Ferguson Kelly in Auckland, New Zealand.
He travelled between NZ and Australia on steam and sailing ships but in 1887 he appears to vanish. Last heard of he was on his way to Sydney, Australia but searches of all known ships at that time show nothing. Nothing on any ship wrecks either. Nothing in Australia of any deaths or arrivals.
He had siblings, John, Richard and Elizabeth and had children, Ann, Stephen, Robin and Elizabeth
