Thanks for confirming that, Anne. :)

I found another two children:

School Records:
Name: Jane PAUL
School: Palmerston
Admitted: 19 Jan 1890
Birthdate: 30 Sept 1871
Parent: William PAUL
Address: Palmerston

School Records:
Name: Alexander PAUL
School: Palmerston
Admitted: 24 Jan 1887
Birthdate: 20 May 1879
Last Day: 19 Dec 1895
Parent: William PAUL
Address: Palmerston
Destination: Dunedin (Customs)

I have no idea what ‘Customs’ might relate to, other than a possible place of work.

Be very wary of dates of birth given in these school records; they were often incorrect. You should confirm them using NZ BDM https://www.bdmhistoricalrecords.dia.govt.nz/search/

Hi Anne

If the William PAUL you are seeking, did in fact marry in NZ, then the 1863 marriage (to Elizabeth PORTER), seems a likely match, in that it took place in Otago.

From the index of Presbyterian Marriages (In Otago and Southland), the following :

Knox Presbyterian Church - Dunedin

Date:  7 August 1863
William PAUL - full age
Elizabeth PORTER - no age shown

One last thank you to Lucy before I shut down!

I should perhaps have mentioned that Margaret Moir, William's mother died young and in 1840, his father remarried an Elisabeth who is listed as his wife in 1841 & 1851. (We've still to confirm her maiden name)

Anne  :)

From Papers Past, "In Memoriam" notices in 'The Otago Daily Times' we learn that William Paul had a grand-daughter named Jean E.* COOK.

See newspapers dated 15.12.1917 & 16.12.1916. There were also insertions for other years.

*Also shown as Jean N. COOK in one edition.

May I butt in please

There's a current thread on the Australian Board re a William PAUL  :) perhaps the two different OPs may be able to help each other's research

Hi Anne

Just digressing slightly  :D  ... was there a "Robert PAUL" born circa 1835 (maybe a brother of William PAUL) ?

The following death notice was placed in the "Otago Witness" newspaper (the area in which William PAUL resided), in 1887.

"Otago Witness" - 19 August 1887 - page 20

PAUL - on 8 August at Greymouth, Westland, Robert PAUL, native of Killearn, Stirlingshire, Scotland;  in his 52nd year.     Stirling papers please copy.
