England to New Zealand Voyage in 1883
« on: Tuesday 12 March 19 21:14 GMT (UK) »
From a N.Z. newspaper I learnt that Samuel Foss , who had been recruited in England as a manager at the Tarataki Dairy Company, arrived on 16 August 1883 in New Zealand. However the most likely ships to have been used by him i.e. S.S. Wairoa & S.S. Wave Queen arrived in Wellington after that date. Can anyone advise how I might find out which ship he sailed on and which were the ports involved. Thanks, Toby?

Hi Toby,

Did Samuel arrive in New Zealand on August 16th, or at the Dairy Company on that date?

Getting down to look at the other helpful leads.
Meanwhile Minniehaha. It is confusing especially as the report states  !6 inst in a paper dated  3 September. I have assumed 16 ult, perhaps wrongly. T

Thanks to you too goldie61. These were new sites for me. I have added to the
http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=502894.9    and posted it,
but since it is 'Completed', I am not sure if anyone gets to see it. Hope it might give new life to the discussion.
I have been in touch with Ms. Pentony Graham who has been most helpful.
