I'm looking for information about Joseph Wilkin. All we know is that he was an Engineer in Bergen. He had a son, Joseph Alexander Wilkin who was born in 1837, and left a private boarding school to join a whaling ship. He eventually made his way to akaroa, New Zealand, where he married Elizabeth Campbell and had 11 sons and 3 daughters, one of whom was Francis Wilkin, my gt gt grandfather. Any information would be a huge help, thank you!
