      Samuel Johnston, 1835

      Any member with links/knowledge of Samuel Johnston, b.1835 Belfast, Ireland. Parents: Robert Johnston and Jane Dunn. Arrived in Sydney 1841 on the Herald, but the streets werent paved with gold so family came to NZ in 1846. Samuel was the eldest son but in his 1880 Will, Robert left most of his estate to the youngest son, George. We cannot find Samuel here after that date. Did he pack a sad and possibly return to OZ? There is some talk that another brother, Henry Johnston, also went to OZ later (after 1893, anyway) so this may have been an incentive for Henry to join his brother? Les Hewett, Napier, NZ.
