Would love to know when and how my great grandfather, Alfred(o)Caesar Berthold(o) departed Madeira. Late in 1894 my grandmother was born in Wellington, New Zealand, and my grandfather was said to be 24 years old at the time. He did become a cook on ships.So did he leave Portugal as part of a crew.Where did he go and how did he end up in NZ. I have been able to trace his movements after his arrival in NZ but not before. It was rumoured that he left Portugal because he was a conscientious objector.
