We have a William James Farrenden in our family tree. He came to NZ as a soldier and served in 1846-1857. I have been unable to find his birth date. He died in Auckland NZ in 1908. He served with the 64th Foot regiment. Could this be the same man? He had a large family here. Some of the names are. Fanny,Ellen (my GM) Martha, Rose, Ann.
Would be interested to know. Unfortunately I am unable to find a record of his death.
