Feb 26, 2008: LAKEMANs NZ to AUS 1859

William LAKEMAN and family moved from Taranaki to Melbourne via the brigantine "Active" in Jun 1859. The obits of William and wife Martha appear in the Taranaki Herald on Papers Past because of their connection with early Taranaki history, so there are many hints as to the rest of the extended family, which I'm gradually working through.
There's even an MP in there, son Allen representing Balranald for 4 years (the family soon left Melbourne and settled in Wagga Wagga).
