There was a Mr John DARLINGTON residing at Puni, South Auckland, in 1897, as recorded by the OBSERVER when his only daughter Jeannie married.  3/7/1897 page 8.

Could there be a connection between this Darlington family @ Puni and John Darlington Owens? Who was born at Puni?

If John's was an illegitimate birth, there is a likelihood that he would have been given the name of his putative father as an additional Christian name. This I believe was a common practice among the Scots.

Probated will of John Darlington:

Hi Minnie,

Click on Modify, you should then see b's in [  ] before and after your highlighted word, remove them and before clicking on save, have a look at the preview, that way you can see if you have done the corrections correctly.

Don't know at this stage shanreagh. Maybe, maybe not..... :)  But the Puni 'link' is surely more than a coincidence? methinks.

Re post #13 and Minniehaha's #19 of the actual press clippings I found last night, there was another that I chose not to post at that time, but as the topic has moved forward, this NZ Herald link 8/9/1884 page 6, gives some background re William Henry MOULDEN
