Searching for decendants of James Maxwell who settled in Australia (probably NSW) around the 1860s. He may have visited NSW earlier than this date
He came orginally from NZ. His father was a Scotsman and mother a NZ Maori. Probably born late 1830s
There is a GF Angus lithograph print taken of James and his mother Ngeungeu made circa 1844 which may be familiar to some of his decendants

He was rumoured to have married an English woman and settled in NSW. He returned briefly to NZ in 1870 to settle his fathers Estate at that time he was accompanied by a daughter and son.
