Frederick COWLING - 1853(UK) - 1912(NZ)

brentor boy

Valued Member
Frederick was born in Mary Tavy, Devon in 1853, the son of Robert and Joanna Cowling.

In 1871 he was living with his widowed mother in Mary Tavy. A miner. He next appears living in Owen Street, Thames, New Zealand, recorded on the 1886 census. A miner.

I have extensive details of his life in New Zealand - his marriage, his involvement in a prosperous gold mine and later as an hotel owner - but I am looking for information for the period between 1871 - 1886, particularly the date of his arrival in New Zealand, (presumably before 1881)

Any help in filling in this gap in his life would be much appreciated.
