- Walter was living at home in the 1861 census for Stapleton Gloucester. There is no trace of him in the 1871 census yet in the 1881 census he and his (wife) plus 6 Children all born in Bath are there, Walters occupation is a furniture salesman, their youngest Thomas William being born © 1866 as I said in Bath.
- Walters wife puts her name on the birth certificate of their daughter, (the line Im tracing) Leonora Tamar as Annie Pettigrove Brain formerly Howes.
- I have a copy of the marriage certificate for Annie Pettigrove daughter of Daniel Pettigrove and Hester (Esther) Hudd; the marriage took place in St Philip and Jacob Church July 20 1840 after Banns. Annie at the time was a minor ...

- there are no records for any children born in New Zealand for Walter & Annie and they did not die in NZ so it seems they returned to Bath. The story above say their youngest son Thomas was born in Bath in 1866, they married in NZ in 1866. When and why did they arrive in NZ for such a short time
