James is off gallivanting at the moment, but I'm sure he'll check in again soon.

Thank you everyone for the latest updates.

Small world - (I'm following this thread as I'm the person who left the thread about searching for a William Paul ex Scotland - hoping to find his arrival into NZ).  Your William, in Palmerston is not mine, but as I live in Central Otago, I am happy to photograph the grave for you.  If you receive the grave details, please post here and I will pop by the cemetery next time I'm in Palmerston.

I'm now wondering if the William Paul who arrived on May 11, 1865 is my one?  I have one of his brothers (Walter) living in Auckland and another brother (George) living in Otago, so not sure where he would pick to live.  My William (born 1824) is from Dunbartonshire (father John Paul, mother Ann Filshie) - last 'find' was the 1841 census when he was listed as a tailor's apprentice.

Palmerston is not too far from where I'm living, so happy to help another Paul family member  :)

James,  a 'light bulb' just went off as "Carston Farm" rang bells with me.  I know that your William Paul is not mine, but think there may be a connection in Scotland as my William Paul has a g-g-grandfather called William - who lived in Killearn.  You mention that your William was born on 16 Feb 1830 and his father was also named William.  Do you have details of who this early William was married to, ie how far back have you been able to go?   I have details to early 1700s and happy to share. Regards Helen DeLilla (nee Paul)

James, Just going back thru my Scotland files and I believe that the census record you have for a Robert Paul, ploughman could possibly be one of mine.  Does your census record have the name of the farm?  If it's the same record as the one I have, I may be able to eliminate him from your search in Scotland as I have a fairly large file on this individual.  I'm trying to sort out the Scottish side (family groupings) in order to sort out the New Zealand Pauls - as confusing.  Following this chat has helped me as I was 'hoping' that this William was mine and was about to order his death record (you guys have saved me time and money).

 :) I see that it has been a long time since anyone has posted on this topic. I would love to add some information to it as I am a relative of William Paul.
