Info about arrival of Edward Millin
« on: Thursday 26 April 18 11:56 BST (UK) »
Hi,
Iíve been researching Edward Millen on the Australian board www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=791892.0 and couldnít find a death, I think though I may have found his death as Edward Millin in NZ in 1909.

However, I canít find any record of him arriving in NZ to verify that. Can anyone help or is my only option to buy the death certificate and see if that can shed any light?
Thanks for any assistance you can offer.
Jenni.

Hi Jenni

You say you can't find any records of him arriving in NZ ... does that mean that you have looked through, say, the New Zealand Passenger lists at FamilySearch ??
https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/1609792

Of course that resource does not cover everybody who ever came to these shores ... and those who made the short journey from Australia are often not well-documented -- even to the point of just being amongst a "number" of passengers "travelling steerage".
British subjects who'd previously emigrated to Australia or NZ, were able to travel freely between the two countries.
----
I have a little information for the man Edward MILLIN who died in 1909 - will add this in a following post.

Here is a transit within NZ for a MILLEN http://www.rootschat.com/links/01lyt/ in 1891.

A mention of a boy in 1907 http://www.rootschat.com/links/01lyu/

I presume you have looked at the Edward Millen mentioned in the Senate elections in AU in 1912?

Lu, I have looked through several sites and have membership to a couple of subscription sites but havenít been able to find anything conclusive.  If you can help with any info about the 1909 death, Iíd appreciate it.

Twiggy, thanks for the links.  As most of these are after 1909, these wonít be him. I found a Millen family who emigrated to NZ in the late 1800s which included an Edward Millen so I think most of those refer to him and are not the Millin Iím after.

Thanks for all your help so far!

Jenni   ...

Here is a link to the Ashburton Cemetery (South Island), where the  Edward MILLIN died 1909, was buried.

Unfortunately the Cemetery have his record under the surname "MILLAN" - but I would expect that the surname of "MILLIN" as used in the NZ BDM death listing, is more likely the correct spelling ?

But not much information to be had for this man.   

http://infoservices.adc.govt.nz/Cemeteries/SearchResults?Advanced=False&FirstName=edward&Surname=MILLAN

Before spending $$$ on a death record (- and rather than a certificate, we always recommend purchase of a "printout" - the registry entry which usually gives additional info.), it would be prudent to enquire if the Ashburton Cemetery has any additional information on this man.
The record notes that he is  buried in "free ground" (essentially a "pauper's plot) although it gives the name of Purchaser of Plot, as Edward MILLAN ?

Edited to add link >    Use this link to contact Ashburton District Council re: cemetery enquiry  > >  click on  form  in 3rd paragraph >

Jenni  ...

Had meant to mention that this Edward MILLIN (d. 1909) seems only to have been in New Zealand from around 1896 ... or at least that appears to be the earliest record of him where he is found at Ashburton working as a labourer.   In the electoral years of 1900 and 1905-06, he is an inmate of the Old Men's Home at Ashburton with no occupation.
 
[Have discounted the other Edward MILLIN (s/o Joseph and Ellen) who for a time resided at Oamaru.]

Lu,
Thanks for the information. Iím not sure what other records I might find for Edward.

I got his death certificate but it told me little.  Parents were unknown.  Birthplace was England and he had been in NZ for 47 years.  But I suspect it would have been anecdotal info from the people at the Old Manís Home.

I wish I could find his passenger record into NZ.  Think Iím at a bit of a dead end now in proving this is the same Edward Iím looking for.
I appreciate everyoneís help.

Thanks,

Jen
