« on: Sunday 14 August 11 04:11 BST (UK) »
Does anyone know if there are any muster rolls  anywhere  in NZ  of retired soldiers who came to NZ. Interested in Peter GLYNN of the 5th foot regiment arrived 1847 on ship "Minerva" Seeking year and place of birth.

From memory there is also a book about the Fencibles with a short biography of each one, in the Auckland Library Research Centre.

According to the book that TwiggyTree mentioned, he was born in Stockport, England in 1812. I can send you a copy of his entry in this book by PM if you wish.
