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

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.
