New South Wales. I am looking for genealogical data on Cyprian Bridge, who was stationed in New South Wales, Australia in 1845. He was in the 58th Regiment. On 22 April 1845, the transport Slains Castle beat into Auckland Harbour (New Zealand) with 215 soldiers of the 58th under Major Cyprian Bridge. These reinforcements were the belated response of Sir George Gipps in New South Wales.Major Bridge was left in command of the Bay of Islands area and on the 15th of May he decided to mount a private expedition of his own against a pa (Maori fort) of the Kapotai up the Waikare River where much booty from the sack of Kororareka was rumoured to be hidden. This Cyprian Bridge was possibly a sibling to my 2nd great-grandmother, Elizabeth Phillips Bridge, born in Harwich, Essex, England, on 6 Jun 1791. Her grandfather and great-grandfather were both called Cyprian Bridge. Any information on this Cyprian Bridge who appeared in Australia in 1845 would be greatly appreciated!
