Thanks for your reply, sorry for delay in returning to you.
I know that Andrew was a Green Grocer or Fruiterer in the UK but I dont know what occupation John Compton followed.
Andrews children who sailed witth him were, Selina b.1847.
Mary Gibson Matilda b.1850 Eliza.Harriet b.1852.
One stayed behind was Andrew Charles b.1854 One child b.1856 in NZ was Charles Gibson.
We do have some evidence of them being in the UK around 1865 as for some reason Selina was being Baptised in St Giles Camberwell aged 18.
I believe the Andrew Brown living on Porirua Road may have been a cousin.
I might also add Andrews father also Andrew
came to NZ in 1839 and returned to UK 1854, he died soon after returning from Cholera.
He took at least 2 children that I know of to NZ with him David b.1823 and John b.1820, there may have been more.
He was a widower
Thank you for your time
