I am searching for any information I can get on my ancestors FERGUSON/FINCH who emigrated to New Zealand around the 1848 and settled in the Milton/Milburn (Tokomairiro) District.

John FINCH (d 22/11/1897) arrived in Port Chalmers on board the "John Wickliffe" in March 1848, with his wife Elizabeth (nee SHAW) and children John (aged 6) d 24/1/1921 m Margaret STRAIN (no offspring), Samuel (aged 4)d. 28/2/1899, Emma (aged 3) d. 26/1/1916 and Elizabeth (aged 4 mths) d. 11/4/27. They settled in the Milburn area around Milton. I would like to fill in the gaps between their arrival, and subsequent children and the birth of my grandmother Frances in late 1890's. She married David FERGUSON, born 1890's son of James FERGUSON and Mary MILLAR

Also in David's Family:
James Jnr b 1876 (d. 1906)
Jean b 1877 m Robert Walker
Ann b 1879 m Harold Christiansen
William b 1880 m Mary Brosnan
Christina b 1882 m Ray Finch
Lily b 1883 m Jack Riordan
Mary b 1885 m Tom Kilgariff
Alex b 1886 m Madge King
Elizabeth b 1890 (my grandfather's twin) m David Schwass
Nell b 1891 m Walter Richards
Jessie b 1893 m William Rockliffe

I hope someone can help me.
