Remittance Men

It has been handed down ( via word of Mouth ) that my Husbands Great Granfather ( John Vaughan Miller , b. 31-1-1838 /39 ) was sent out from England to New Zealand ( along with his Family ) as a " Remittance Man " ( Something to do with Drink ) , while working as a Clerk for the Admiralty at White Hall .

How can I get Written Proof of this ?
