Micaiah & Elizabeths may have spent time living in Sonerset as son Micaiah was born there in 1846 but the family had returned to St Pancras by the time their next son, Frederick, was born. On the 14th February 1857 Micaiah, Louisa and children Edward, Micaiah, Frederick, Louisa, Annie Elizabeth and Alice emigrated to New Zealand on the 'Alma' . They arrived in Wellington on 15th May 1857. Three more children were born to Louisa and Micaiah in Wellington.
