That was good advice you gave to Tania re keeping an 'aye' out for 'late' responses .
My ALLAN/ALLEN surnamed person of interest also started out from Paisley , Renfrewshire , it would seem :
James Gemmel(or similar ) ALLAN/ALLEN was born about 1844.
He came to New Zealand where he married a Mary Margaret CAINES whose father was probably Scots-born.
The marriage took place near Wanganui , 19 February , 1867.
My notes suggest that the bride may have been only fourteen years of age .
Anyway , according to (unconfirmed)reports ,James Gemmel/Gammell ALLAN/ALLEN and Mary Margaret ALLAN nee CAINES produced a huge number of offspring , in the order of SIXTEEN , between 1868 and 1895.
These births occurred at or near , Wanganui , New Zealand...
