    Good advice.

    (Btw there is a Wikitree for Christopher which has him born 1838 Penrith, son of a Christopher. May or may not be accurate)

    Assuming that Sharon has the marriage certificate of Christopher WAUGH & Esther SMITH and that is how she obtained the information that Richard WAUGH was his father - hopefully she has - possible sister Mary Jane SHORT nee WAUGH is in the 1901 census of Dartmouth, Canada, and living with her husband, herself & family is her mother Dinah WAUGH who is shown as a widow born 12 August 1823, born England, and came to Canada in 1860 as did daughter Mary Jane. Perhaps a wee bit sceptical about her year of birth as she would only be 15 when she married in 1838 and she was supposed to be of full age!

    However, I am having great difficulty in finding out anything about Christopher WAUGH apart from his Marriage Registration in March qtr 1862 at Auckland reg district. So I think we now need Sharon to come back to us and give us all the substantiated information she has re Christopher & Esther as Peter & Grisel have suggested.

    Sharon, I'm wondering why you've posted in the Cornwall forum, do you have documented evidence that he was born in Cornwall?

    My media item report tells me. Christopher Waugh was born 25 Oct 1839. entry no 2217.
    His parents are as I listed.
    An entry is in Army Register Book of births and baptisms.
    Rank of Father. - Private
    Christopher Waugh married Esther Smith. Had 1 child George and went to New Zealand. more children there which I have all details on.
    Thanks for your help.

    ps He personally told his family that was where they were from. Cornwall.

    Hi Sharon, as I'm unfamiliar with 'media item reports' please can you point me to them.

    How coincidental, Chris Christopher, Esther and their son, George, arrived in Auckland, New Zealand, on the ship Bombay.
