Hi Robert
Thank you for your response. According to Joseph's death certificate there were 6 children living - 3 males aged 33, 23, 14 and 3 females aged 25, 21 and 17. The certificate does not identify deceased children.

His death certificate also indicated that he was 46 years in NZ which would have had him arriving circa 1853. I can send you a transcript of the death certificate if you wish. I did wonder why Joseph moved from Invercargill to Raetihi. I would probably suggest that Joseph came out with his brother John Greenway Punch on one his voyages to Australia/NZ. John was the Master of the brig Shamrock in 1858 when he married in Sydney, which is a few years after 1853.

Joseph's occupation was a carpenter but I wonder if that was a ship's carpenter like his father Matthew.

A family group sheet would be great - did you find any info on Catherine's parents/siblings?
