Looking for William and Elizabeth MORRISON - Hobart, AUS

I am looking for information on William and Elizabeth MORRISON (nee HAUGHTON) - my gr-gr-gr Grandparents. The only information I have on him so far is the following newspaper notice of William Morrison's death in The Mercury (Hobart) 6 Sept 1872

MORRISON - On Tuesday, 3rd September, at his residence, 64 Goulburn-street, William Morrison, late of H. M. 48th Regiment, aged 64 years.

This notice was copied to New Zealand papers and added to with the inclusion of 'and father of W. Morrison, Ketch Falcon'. This W. is my gr-gr grandfather W. John Morrison.

The only information I have on Elizabeth is on her son John's death record where it states the name of his parents, his father's occupation - soldier - and his place of birth - Dublin, Ireland.

I have not had any luck tracing William in regiment records or discovering his place of birth. Any help with William and Elizabeth would be appreciated.

Looking for Henry WINT(E)RINGHAM NZ and ENG

Henry WINT(E)RINGHAM arrived in NZ from England on 31st Jan 1843 aged 21 on the ship Thomas Sparks as a groom. He married Jane PRINCE and they had 11 children (that I know of). Sometime after 1864 Henry disappeared. Family lore is that he missed Yorkshire so much he abandoned his wife and family and returned to England. I would be interested in any info on the early or later life of Henry - my gr-gr-gr grandfather.
