Thanks for info. I have Carlís original naturalisation certificate as opposed to a copy which has the date on as 16th March 1869. Yes he was a storekeeper and in Wellington. Unfortunately it doesnít have the length of time he was in NZ before this. Yes one of his sons was Named Carl Leopold Anderson too. Sorry not sure how to reply to individual comments. Iím new to this and havenít figured it all out yet. Thanks very much.

The paperwork I referred to in my previous post wasn't the certificate - it was the application for naturalisation

So butterpopcorn59 there may be two avenues to find his date of birth and/or his arrival year:

1 Naturalisation FILE which includes the application
2 Intention to Marry entry which may give additional hints.

Both of these are held at the Archives in Wellington.

You can post a new query on this board for a 'Look up' for these:
http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=508522.0

The naturalisation file reference is 1869/671 I 115

Although as Johnf04 pointed out there is another file in Archives to do with his naturalisation

This is a bit about the town he came from, just as a bit of background.

Apparently there are a couple of pages relating to Carl in the NZSG collections if anyone is a member.

And more, if it helps at all, about the family

Hi
Just looking here in Sweden for Carl without success as of yet, just need a little more to go on other than Gothenburg.
Do you know/think if he was a seaman at all.
I did find his probate which shed no light on his background unfortunately. You'll need to be a member to view it but is free to do so. It is 7 pages long:

Hi jamcat95,

Iím sorry I donít know if he was a seaman. I heard through a cousin he stowed away on a boat aged 10 but Iím really doubting that considering he obtained NZ citizenship.  Also he was supposedly the illegimate son of the King of Sweden which after looking into it I doubt that too. I read somewhere recently he left from Hull UK to travel by boat to NZ. I have no concrete information on his earlier life at all. So who knows maybe he was a seaman in between stowing away from Sweden and leaving Hull. Many possibilities. Thanks for your interest.
