With such a distinctive name, I couldn't resist having a look for some details about Robert George Craddock Montague COOK, born 1901.

In 1929 he married Vera Elizabeth KIRBY. His names were arranged as Robert George Montague Cradock COOK.

Robert George Craddock COOK died on 18.2.1953. Burial records show his occupation as that of Storekeeper. His wife died on 25.6.1973 aged 65 years.

Both buried @ Anderson's Bay cemetery, Dunedin. In the same plot: Robert William COOK, aged 40
years, died 24.9.1972. A chef, who died @ Queenstown.

Probate (1953) held @ Archives, Dunedin , for Robert George Montague Cradock, Butcher.

Lu -if posssible, could you post a link so we can see the info of all the Paul 'passengers please?

"Robert PAUL - per "Columbus" (to Auckland, October 1864) ... appears to have been accompanied by an Elizabeth PAUL and (apparently) 3 females, all named Margaret PAUL ? (no ages or place of origin given unfortunately).    "Daily Southern Cross" - 11 October 1864 - Port of Auckland, Miscellaneous"

We might be able to figure out who they were by the usual 'process of elimination'

Anne  :)

Hi Anne

The link given in Reply # 27, is of course just the passenger list transcription taken from the newspaper article I mentioned.    That is possibly all the information available for the "Columbus" voyage, unfortunately ?

Sorry Lu - I should have taken more notice of the info on your initial post.

I guess in all the excitement I missed that bit!

Hi Anne

Also found this >

"Daily Southern  Cross" (Auckland) - 11 October 1864 - Retrenchment - page 4

(quarter of way down column)    *    The ship "Columbus" .... the only deaths during the passage ... and Margaret PAUL, aged 2 years, who died on 27th July ...

[May help identify if this is likely to be your PAUL family group ?  ]

Thanks to everyone for input to this story,really good to be in contact and remembering  good times in New Zealand:
The facts so far are:William Paul,B-16th Feb 1830,Carston Farm,Killearn,Scotland.
Death:16th Dec,1908,PalmerstonmOtago,New Zealand,have Scottish census for:1841,1851 Drumbeg Farm,Killearn,Scotland.
No Marriage found on Scottish records,did he arrive in New Zealand after 1851?,or was he the William Paul on the "Belgravia"vessel on 10th May 1865,Auckland arrivals,if he was his marriage in NZ will be following this arrival date?.
It seems Williams Brother,Robert Paul,B-16th Feb 1836,same location as William,Death,8th Aug 1887,Greymouth,Westland,NZ,notice in Otago Witness 19th Aug 1887.
Seeking arrivals/marriages/children of both in NZ.be gratefull for help.

Hello jamesnpaul 

  ... welcome.

Can you confirm please, are you the "cousin" Anne spoke of earlier for whom she was gathering this information on the PAUL family of Palmerston ?    [I'm a tad confused as Anne has not yet replied to my last post on 9 September.]

Cheers.
