James Louden (Lowden) birth and shipping records

Hi

I am trying to locate more information on my Scottish ancestor James Louden.

I know that he was in New Zealand in 1836 till he died in 1858 (age 56) but I have been searching for over a year trying to find out how he got to NZ. Shipping records to NZ before 1836 are very scarce so I am thinking that maybe he travelled to US then onto NZ on a whaling ship?? But that is only a guess and I have no idea how to go about finding out. I only have the sub to ancestry.au.com so it doesn't show up any US records.

I have tried to look up his birth details unfortunately I have no idea which part of Scotland he came from. Is it possible to find out his birth details?

Any help would be appreciated - I just don't know where to look from now.

Thanks
Rachel
