Further Information1861 English Census states was living with parents and sister St. Anne Parish Westminster London England
1861 Records for this man have some inconsistencies.  Some pension payment records state was in Napier New Zealand from 1863-1879.  Other records only available at National Archives Kew London state was receiving a pension in England after 1872.  Further research required.
