Added:Death of his parents?

The William Howells in the 1841 census looks like our man, I understand he and Susan married young and then headed of to New Zealand, how they got there I am still not certain, thanks for all your help many blanks filled in, for the record I have offered the paperwork regarding the sale of the estate etc... in Waipawa to the Central Hawkes Bay Museum thank you for that link..
