NZ Matchetts - from Co Armagh Ireland

I am trying to trace my family tree from the NZ Matchett's back to Co Armagh. They may have come here via Australia.

Individuals include:
Top of my Matchett tree here in New Zealand

*James Matchett m. Ellen Metcalfe (b. d. m. dates unknown) - James lived here in Matahura NZ and presumably d. here)
*(Son) Robert David Matchett b. 1862 Co Armagh Ireland d. 1922 NZ
*(GrandSon) Robert David Matchett Jnr b. 1846 Ponsonby NZ d. 1948 NZ Morrinsville

Unsure if related but also have information on a

*Mary Matchett b. 1814 Coulcare?? Co Armagh d. unknown m. 1864 Armagh to John Smith b. 1816 Ballimany?? Co Armagh d. unknown
*(Son) Thomas Smith b. 1856 Harrisville Tuakau NZ d. unknown

Have found a printout in the Auckland newspaper for a James Matchett from Ballarat AUS buying 500 shares in a goldmine being started in Thames NZ- not sure yet if this is the James above - needs further research.

Any comments on connections groups in AUS or IRELAND - please let me know.

Cheers Margaret
