Mr. Thomas Powrie,age 29, arrived April 1835 on the ship Medora, Port F, Fiche 8, page 1 It is the same as his brother Robert so we know they came together. I was given this documentation detail from the NZ archive
What/who told you it was 1853? film? fiche? Must be documented or "it ain't history".
Do you know what ship took them from Oz to NZ. I have the details of voyage from England to South Africa
