I am researching my husbands'family and would like to hear from anyone who had relations from Flores/Azores about 1838/1860, or any info that might be of help to research that period in time. Jose and his brother Matthew left Flores on a sailing ship and finished up in New Zealand searching for gold around 1862.They met a Scottish lass on the ship called Margaret. Most of their lives were spent on the West Coast of the South Island in New Zealand. They were supposed to have had a friend with them as well called Sylvester. Hoping someone can be of some help.
