Researching the Irish Ancestors of Thomas Masterson & Mary Keirnan who Arr. in New Zealand Jan 1848
My Gr-gr-gr Grandfather was Thomas Masterson who came from Ireland to Auckland, New Zealand as a recruited Fencible (defence force). He and his wife Mary Kierman/Kiernan arrived in January 1848 aboard the ship Clifton. Their base was in Panmure, Auckland.
I hope someone might be able to help me towards knowing where these two were born, married and buried and who their parents and family were. I am keen to gather any and all the information I can of this couples history.
