Hi Dave,
On my records I have the following for -773 Private Jeremiah CAREY.  Joined the 58th 29/03/1832
left Deptford on the 'Orator' 14/07/1843.
Arrived Sydney Aust. 14/12/1843.
Sailed to Auckland later in 1847 on the 'Pentongoee Bomangee' 12/07/1847. 
On 25/05/56 he took his discharge, in Auckland. 
It was a 'discharge to Pension'

In November 1858 the Rutlandshire Regiment of Foot Disbanded.  A few of the soldiers of that Regiment returned to England with their Commanding Officer, Colonel Robert Henry Wynyard.  So dont know what he did after his discharge.

All the best with your research of the 58th.

Bev

Hi Bernice,
I found Owen's death notice in papers past (a great site for newspaper articles). Interestingly he lived on the same street as my ancestor, Jeremiah Carey (Chapel Square).

It reads:
COMMONS. On April 7. at his. residence. Chapel-street. Owen Commons, formerly of H.M. 58th Regiment; aged 70 years

Here is a link to the notice:

I hope that this helps!

Hi Bernice,
I found a marriage between Owen COMMONS and Sarah FLANAGAN took place at Auckland NZ on 19 January 1865.

I attempted to find children born to that couple, but there were no parent names listed with children that I thought may be theirs. i.e:
1865- John Commons born Auckland  died 1872
1866- Ellen Commons
1870- Bridget  Commons - died 1888 aged 17 yrs.
1872- John Commons 
1872- Bessie Theresa - died 1872 aged 8 hrs. old
Is there any others I could look up for you?
Cheers, Bev

Hi Alison
This family gets very complicated as their are 2 Owens of the same generation
1 arrived on Surat in 1864 who married Sarah  Lived in Mangere.
Our Owen married Ann or Mary Cavanagh but haven't found that yet abt 1858. Edward,  John and Bridget are their children but didnt die young, so they must belong to someone else.
Many thanx for your help
BTW where is Chapel Square?

Hello again Bernice.
The Chapel Square was in the days of Governor Hobson, and his surveyor Felton Mathew.  The area involved 1840's Auckland and ran from the harbour up to the Cathedral where it squared off and had two entrances off Wyndham Street.
Hope that helps.
