thank you to Marcusy for his message:
Subject: the children of John MONK & Phoebe OWLETT - UK to NZ
To: ngairedith
From: Marcusy
Date: 2013-09-13 16:32:56
... Hi, I was reading your entry on the children of John MONK & Phoebe OWLETT and wonder about John Monk being a lawyer. How did you come to this conclusion?

However, I am mostly interested in his the activities of his son William, especially from the years 1858 till his marriage in 1865. Would you have any idea of what he did during this time? Any information you have would be much appreciated.

If you can help Marcusy with any info on William please leave a comment below
