    Mystery - John Wooster of Pennbury Farm - 1924 Visit to New Zealand?
    Mystery - John Wooster of Pennbury Farm - 1924 Visit to New Zealand?
    Did John Wooster visit New Zealand as a 16 year old?
    He gives his age as 19 on the ship's passenger list, his occupation as farming and his address as a vicarage in Melton, presumably Melton Mowbray in Leicestershire.
    His parents were very active in the church in Leicestershire, so could this be their son?
