Not finding any birth registration for James or baptism so far.  When and where did he marry Matilda and when did he arrive in New Zealand?

The death registration in New Zealand suggests that he was born in 1868 not 1863.

Added: Do you have his death certificate?  If so what does it say?

They certainly had plenty of children, 12 between 1885 and 1920.

Presuming you have the marriage and death certs?
What are the details?
I don't see a good candidate for James' arrival.
