Can I have some help, please? I have a William Lawrence, who emmigrated to Port Chalmers, New Zealand onship 'Oamaru' arriving 18/1/1878. Date of embarcation 24/10/1877 at Glasgow. On the shipping papers his name is spelt Laurence and aged 21yrs.It says he was from Derry, occupation Farm Labourer.On the marriage cert. to my grandmother, Helen Mills in Dunedin 1896, his birth place is County Tyronne and his parents William Lawrence (farmer) and Fanny Conner. In Cyclopedia of NZ he says he was born in County Cavan. He died at Oamaru 5 Sept1936 aged 82yrs. How do I find out where he was born and about his parents?
