CURRIN Family:
John Currin originated from Northamptonshire, England and travelled from London to Nelson in 1842 on the Prince of Wales, with his Father, Mother, Two Brothers and Two Sisters (one who was already married). Approx four years later John Currin married Jane Mears from Stafford, England. Settling in Waimea South, Nelson, New Zealand 13 to 14 children were born to this family between the years 1849 and 1872. One of the children Sarah Jane Currin married George B Galland, in 1874.
