Looking for any information on this family..
I can pick up  James Johnstone in 1859 , Schnapper Point, Mornington, Victoria. Australia (possibly a Merchant Seaman and jumped ship for the goldfields sometime pre 1959) when he Married Ann(ie) Irons sometimes called Hirons, Annie's father owqned Brickworks at Mornington.. the family then came to New Zealand in 1864 with the Waikato Militia.
James also used James Lovett Johnstone or James McGhurr? Johnstone

James has his birth place on Marriage Certificate as Romsey, Hampshire and on his Death Certificate Kirkcaldy, Scotland.
He names his parents as Joseph Young Johnstone and always has his mother as Margaret nee Lovett
I have been unable to track James life before 1859 and would appreciate any help. James was known in NZ as being untruthful and talk of a remittance man...
thank you
Sue
