Daniel?s father Daniel Parson?s Baker married his mother Sina Phillips on the 6th December 1791 in Edgbaston United Kingdom. Their children were Ann, Mary [6 April 1801 Christened] Sarah [28 Oct 1802 Christened] The 4th child was DANIEL PARSONS BAKER [20 Dec 1804 DoB] Caleb [17 Nov. 1806 Christened] Sina,[14 Oct 1808 DoB] Richard Parsons Baker [14 Jan 1811 DoB] All the children were christened in St. Martin?s in the Bullring Birmingham.
I am keen to discover ancestors of Daniel's siblings.
The Baker family or just Daniel as an apprentice may have moved to Sedgley by 1819. At the age of approx 10 ? 12 years old he was apprenticed as a brass founders moulder. My story starts with a young lad just 14 who along with 3 other boys stole a watch and was forced to leave his family and homeland England in the United Kingdom ? in disgrace as a convict. This young lad was shipped to Australia so far from home and lived the harsh life as a convict. When granted his Freedom he chose to make New Zealand his home and with his wife Noa ? [the first Samoan to become a New Zealand citizen] raised their children as New Zealanders [five of the six were born on the isolated Raoul Island]. They were pioneers and have been recorded in the history books of our land. His children went on to play an important role in the history of New Zealand.
