The cemetery gates were donated by Jane's grandchildren Andrew and Sarah Turnbull. Most of my Taranaki forbears are buried in this cemetery.3

Migration

     James and Jane Turnbull immigrated from Liverpool, 25 Aug 1862 on the "Great Australia" arriving 16 Sep 1862 Melbourne,VIC,AUS the Passenger List showing: TURNBULL: James 41, farmer; Jane 40 wife; Robt 9, Ellen 7, Stephen 5, James 3, all English. On same schedule, appearing to travel with the family: Ellen WILLEY 18;
Master: Baker, 25 Apr 1862, declared he had sufficient provisions on board for the 515 statute adults and a voyage of 140 days before they left Liverpool.10
     James and Jane Turnbull emigrated 10 Aug 1866 on the "Tararua" from Melbourne, VIC, AUS to New Zealand - assumed to be to Wellington. TURNBULL: Mr James 45, marr; Mrs James 40; Robert 11, Ellen 10, Stephen 9 in the index of they voyage.
Progress of the voyage can be traced via newspaper shipping reports of the time:
18 Aug 1866 the Wellington Independent reported the expected arrival of the 'Tararua' "from Melbourne via the South" on the 23rd, expected departures 'Tararua' for Melbourne via Nelson and Hokitika, 23rd
21 Aug 1866 the Christchurch Press expected the 'Tararua' from Melbourne via the Bluff and Dunedin on or about Wed, expected departure on Thurs
24 Aug 1866 the Press reported that the 'Tararua' had sailed from Lyttelton for Wellington "steerage :1 and 120 original"
26 Aug 1866 the Wellington Independent provided a passenger list (not steerage), and a summary of the voyage of the P.N.Z. & A.R.M. Co.'s Steamship Tararua: departed Hobson Bay 4pm 10th, arr. Bluff 8am 16th, leaving 2pm. arr. Port Chalmers at daylight 17th (Fri), leaving 4:30 on the 21st (Tue); arr. Lyttelton 8:30am 22nd, leaving 6:15pm Thurs (23rd); arr. Wellington Harbour 11am 'yesterday' (24th).
James' dth cert. implies he arrived in NZ abt 1862, perhaps someone interpreted the question as when did he leave England.
Ellen's dth cert implies she arrived in NZ in 1864, a good compromise between the 1862 arrival in Australia and 1866 arrival in NZ.
It is assumed they disembarked at Wellington, although Nelson might also be a possibility. Bluff, Otago, Lyttelton and Hokitika seem unlikely.11,12,13,14,15,1,7,16
