Birth: 30 NOV 1821 in Rockfort House,Cork Co., Ireland
Death: 23 OCT 1889 in Heidelberg, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
I am attaching records of their marriage & of Thomas' death. It would seem that Thomas spent 13 years in NZ before he came to Australia to live for a further 11 years. If this is correct, he would have arrived in NZ 2 years before his son Henry Pierce did. Also, it records that his first wife died in 1861 & that they had 5 children - 2 of whom died. The 3 surviving children would have been 10, 11 & 14 years old when their mother died & only 4 years older when their father took off for NZ....hard to get my head around that!
From the death record, burial Heidelberg Cem.
went to Australia 1878, went to New Zealand 1865
