Hello Sue

Welcome to RootsChat.   :)

Should just point out firstly, that in the subject heading to this thread, you have written  > "Me Breton" family ... rather than Le Breton (or le Breton).   You may want to correct that.  ;)

A Francis le BRETON, ex Jersey, accompanied by his wife Mary and six children, arrived in the Province of Canterbury, in 1864.
The passenger list for the "Ivanhoe" on which they arrived, shows his occupation at that time as "farm labourer" ... but it's probable he became a farm worker only for the purpose of complying with the conditions of being granted a subsidised passage for his family under an immigration scheme of that time.

Francis appears on early NZ electoral rolls for Canterbury as a freeholder (owning land) in the  1870's, although his occupation is not stated.   But by 1880-81 he is listed as a tailor.

Is this the person you are looking for ?

Sue ...

Francis Le BRETON married Mary LUCE at Jersey, 1843.

Francis, Mary and family are on the 1861 UK census at Jersey.

If this is the family you are wanting, then there are a number of "family trees" on the ancestry.com website.

*   Perhaps you can tell us in more detail, what information you are wanting to find.   ;)
