Hi Wendy

I assembled some other clues today and then forgot to hit 'Post' so it is still on my work computer...rather than keep you in suspense, I will, from memory, suggest you check out a couple sites

take a look at PRO Vic "outward passengers' and you will see a Mr CHIDGEY sailing to NZ 1878 - aged 38

"RINGAROOMA," for New Zoaland, on THURSDAY, July 31, at 2 p.m

did you find the advertisement in NZ that Cornelius posted twice saying he will not be responsible for any debts incurred by Lydia Ann??

Also, in Archway NZ, there is a file about the family - could be just their passenger arrival details, but you can order them

There is also a book wrtten that includes 4 branches - its available in NZ
he might have had access to letters etc - which may shed some light on CC

also - have you visited the Christchrch cmetery site?

I don't know if you have this:
