Immigration - William SCOTT
« on: Sunday 05 November 17 02:06 GMT (UK) »
Searching for any information about a Captain William Scott (bc1818) and his daughter Elizabeth (Lucy) Scott (bc 1837 Newcastle on Tyne) who came to New Zealand about 1850/1851 from perhaps England (from his daughters Diamond Jubilee notice in Newspaper).  Do not know if they Immigrated or came in the Army or as a Master Mariner.  I believe he was a storekeeper at Willis Street, Wellington as this is where his daughter was married from. He perhaps remarried to Mary Florence Mitchell in 1851, but this may be the wrong. I believe his 1st wife was Lucy but no sign of her in NZ. His daughter Elizabeth married Rudolphe Marie Martin Joseph de St Laurent in 1857 in Wellington. Looking for proof of Immigration for William and Elizabeth or Army records.

Hi Casey,

You say William may have remarried in 1851 but the newspaper notice for Elizabeth's golden wedding states she married at the residence of her parents

https://paperspast.natlib.govt.nz/newspapers/HNS19070808.2.11?query=Captain%20William%20Scott

And this for their diamond weddings says she came to NZ in 1851

Do you have a death for Elizabeth's mother?

Cheers Janette

With the knowledge that you have about the family, this death notice will probably determine whether or not the above information about William and his wife Mary does indeed concern the people you are researching......

The William buried in Bolton St may not be the correct man as he states he is a storekeeper in his will.

Casey,do you have any documents for births,deaths or marriages for the family?

Part quote from Casey in her introduction to the topic......

 "I believe he was a storekeeper at Willis Street, Wellington"
