Hi there,

I think it may be worth checking the Symonds Street Cemetery:

After a quick search I found a lot of information on a JOHN KELLY, 1858 alleged murderer. He was first buried in the old Auckland gaol yard,then later exhumed and reinterred in Symonds Street Cemetery.

The Daily Southern Cross of 25\12\1857 has John Kelly murdered John Butler at Whangarei.

Alternate subject headings for this topic include: ; Kelly, John, d.1858; 58th Regiment
 
Several KELLY burials mentioned in later records, which may or may not be connected.

Cheers
Del

Hi again,

At the following link, there is a list of soldiers from the 58 Reg', named is a John Kelly, and there is a link to an email address for person researching him, perhaps this could be of help to your search.

Here is the article in the Daily Southern Cross 31st Aug 1875


http://www.rootschat.com/links/0kxm/

Note the spelling of hs name was Kieley

If you put Kelly in this search, it has a bit about Symonds St Cemetery

Another option is to see if you can get some answers through the links from the Police Museum site

Dels mentions above confirm he was from the 58th reg
Quote
The man that was murdered was from the 58th Reg and one newspaper reports has the names John Killey or Kelly
coincidentally there is a John KELLY in the 58th from Tenagh Bye Althea

Regimental records, attestations may hold more clues to the ancestry
