Matthew Holmes 1842. I'm the GGGson of Matthew Holmes b15.9.1817 - d27.9.1901, we have excellent information post 1842. He came to New Zealand in 1854 and settled here in Oamaru. If you have any family history prior to his move to Australia that would be wonderful. We have uncertain details of his parents & Gparents and their families. Any help would be great.
