No only UK. After Bartholomew died (He was an well known Irish writer and traveller and was on the steamer 'Amazon' when it caught fire and sank.) His wife remarried. George and Sophia moved to Palmerston North, New Zealand. As did Piers briefly but he returned to England. They seem to have set the social scene in Palmerston North and are well documented as attending this and hosting that! He was sometimes known as Eliot and she seems to be called Isobel. They had 5 children:
Charlotte Eliot (writer unmarried)
Piers Acton (killed WW1)
Edward Darian
Maude Agnes (Dalgety)
Eva May (Abraham)
I found a Sophia Isabella Budd b.1863 in Stoke, Damerel, Devon.
Wondering if this could be her? I ideally need marriage records so I can tie her to a family.

Thank you Ngaiedith, It seems the BUDD family must have been living in NZ already. You have given me some work to do. There must be some wedding information in social pages some where. The Warburton family is really interesting and some branches go back a long way.

the Budd girls arrived with their mother into Wellington on Xmas Day 1880 on the Northumberland

by Flower10 on 2012-10-31 05:33:55

Really! I wonder why? Was father here or did they have relatives? Interesting, It would be a brave thing to do for a woman on her own.

by Flower10 on 2012-10-31 06:06:46

Ahh! Papers Past James Edward Fulton married the daughter of the late Major Fredrick Edward Budd! So father was no longer living by 1885

from the LONDON GAZETTE, 24 January 1865
... Captain Frederick Edward Budd, retired full-pay, Royal Marines, to have the honorary rank of Major, under the provisions of the Order in Council of 13th November 1858

by ngairedith on 2012-10-31 06:44:59

Frederick Edward Budd served in the TAIPING REBELLION
... On August 18th, 1860, the Ti-ping army, or rather, part of it, arrived before Shanghai, and drove in the Tartar outposts, subsequently advancing to the walls. They were met with shot, shell, and musketry from the European garrison of the settlement, and especially from Royal Marines, and Indian troops, Lieutenant John William Waller O'Grady, R.M., being particularly active, and Captain Frederick Edward Budd, R.M., keeping up a very hot fire from another position. It is said that, during the whole time, the rebels did not reply. At any rate, about 300 of them fell, while there was not a single casualty on the part of the Europeans. When the Ti-pings had retired, parties were sent out to burn down such houses in the suburbs as might afford cover to the rebels. On Sunday, August 19th, the French burnt more houses, and, in the afternoon, the gunboats Kestrel, Lieutenant Henry Huxham, and Hongkong, together with Lieutenant O'Grady's Marines, re-opened fire on any rebels who could be seen. It is said that again the Ti-pings did not return a shot. It is certain, however, that, on the 20th they advanced in greater strength than before, determined, perhaps, to endeavour to avenge their comrades slaughtered, as they conceived it, in bad faith. Once more they were driven back; and during the following night, the Pioneer, 6, screw, Commander Hugh Arthur Reilly, added to their discomfiture by steaming up the river and dropping shells into their camp... more at link
