John Needes BOWERMAN
My Grgrandfather John Needes BOWERMAN came to Lyttleton on the Zealandia. Very soon after arrival in December 1863 he was working as a chemist in Napier, subsequently having his own chemists businesses in
Napier and later Devonport, Auckland. He was a passenger in the 'second cabin' and according to his diary had a lot of fun on the voyage out. If you have a connection to this family or are interested in diaries relating to this voyage (Bruce has copies of two diaries) please contact Bruce Crowther
