Born around the 1830s in New Zealand. Father was a Scotsman Thomas Maxwell mother a New Zealand maori. |
John was educated in Sydney Australia and may have been apprenticed to a saddler in Auckland NZ.
He left NZ abroad the ship "Oriental Queen" bound for England in 1848-49 and was never heard from again.
Did he make it to England or stop somewhere enroute? Perhaps he died during the voyage
Any information about his fate or any possible descendants would be appreciated
