I agree.... but is it a Middle Name or Surname?

Yes, I will do some research in Australia. I'm unsure whether the family lived in Australia or not, as Eileen lived in NZ, her husband was born in NZ too. They might have just been married in NSW (it's happened a few times in my family, marriage in Australia, living in NZ).

Since the father's occupation is a squatter, I suppose we can assume at this point the family was living in Australia. We'll see.

My cousins the St Aubyn Murray family believe it's a surname and they have been treating it as such.

One family line is John St Aubyn Burke -> Eileen St Aubyn Burke -> Henry St Aubyn Murray -> Anthony St Aubyn Murray.

Henry St Aubyn Murray was Eileen and Henry Murray's first child, his descendants have continued to be named St Aubyn Murray.

Whether it really is a surname or not, I'm unsure.

Ever-curious, I googled or rather binged.
Surname Database https://www.surnamedb.com
St Aubyn is a Norman French name which arrived in Ireland with the Normans. Gaelicized to Toibin. Settled in counties Tipperary and Kilkenny.

Ireland Roots - Surnames
Tobin derives from Toibin, Irish version of St. Aubyn. Norman French. Settled in Tipperary and Kilkenny and spread to counties Cork and Waterford.

So I was wrong. It is Irish. Anglo-Irish.

I was even more tired than I thought last night. I'd just looked at the squatters in Australia link, totally forgot about New Zealand when I posted.

Did people emigrate stright to New Zealand or was it usually via Australia?
You can't fish on a empty stomach so give the man one or two records so he knows how good it tastes.

I believe you could emigrate straight to New Zealand but I know quite a few British settlers came via New South Wales (especially in the first half of the 19th century).

Sorry, I mean I know you could. The New Zealand Shipping Company took passengers from the UK directly to New Zealand starting in 1873. At least one of my ancestors did that.
