Thomas and Sarah Maxwell early 1800.We believe he was a ship builder. Thomas was thought to have originated from Aberdeen. Does anyone have a Thomas from this area and era? He set sail on the whaling barque "Harriet" to New Zealand via Australia departing and arriving sometime between 1817 and 1837(sorry no supporting documentation located to verify the date)
We, his New Zealand decendants believe he travelled in the company of a brother or cousin, perhaps both. It is felt his companion/s settled in another country enroute to NZ -USA or Australia perhaps?
Hi wife was not with him so one assumes she had died prior to his leaving Scotland or during the voyage. If you have a Thomas Maxwell married to Sarah in your chart for this period we would be interested in hearing from you. regards Joy
