13 children of John SHEPHERD + Sarah Ann LONGBOTTOM

Journal by ngairedith

John SHEPHERD was born in 1833 in Seagrave, Loughborough, Leicestershire
He married Sarah Ann LONGBOTTOM who was born in 1837 in Louth Lincolnshire, the 1st of 12 children of Barnard Longbottom and Ann Andersn LARDER who, after the birth of all their 12 children, emigrated to Auckland. This dates their arrival as after 1856.

On May 29th 1862 the migrant ships "MATILDA WATTENBACH and `HANOVER` departed from London bound for the Albertland Settlement in New Zealand with the first of over 3000 settlers. They called themselves the Albertlanders, after Prince Albert, Queen Victoria`s consort.
Many of these settlers did not arrive at Port Albert - they moved further inland to more fertile areas. As a result Wellsford was founded. The ones who did stay found it difficult to make a living
