The following tables represent tidbits of information about the Monteith's who have sent feedback about their families in New Zealand.  As with other branches, these families have immigrated from either Scotland or Ireland in the 1800's to begin new lives in this part of the world.  Hopefully information will continue to be forwarded about Monteith's who settled in New Zealand and eventually some common links will appear.

Joseph Monteith of Wellington

Preamble:
Joseph Monteith and his brother Robert Monteith sailed to New Zealand on a ship called the Dallam Tower from Plymouth, England arriving Wellington, New Zealand on the 17th of March 1875. The ship's records say:

- Monteith, Rob 24  from county of Meath, Ireland Farm labour        
- Monteith, Joseph 22 from County of Meath Farm labour

They were paid 29 pounds for their voyage. Both originally coming from County Meath, Ireland.  Joseph and Robert's father according to family legend was bailiff or estate agent to the Earl Of Darnley.  A search of Irish peerage indicates the likely Earl as the 5th Earl  (Edward Bligh) before his elevation to the peerage Bligh, had been M.P. for Canterbury from 1818 until 1830.

After their arrival in Wellington NZ, Joseph found work at Lethenty Station as a farm worker.  He worked for John Glenny Wilson, later Sir John Wilson.
    What happened to Robert we do not know although it is said that he left New Zealand for Australia.

Unlinked Families

I've just been visiting your home page. Most interesting !  I am one of the Family of Monteith's in New Zealand, who came from Australia and before that from Scotland. Henry Monteith, 1765 to 1848, of Carstairs House, Lanark, Scotland, was our most remarkable man in history that we know of. His father was James Monteith of Anderston, Glasgow. His father was Henry Monteith of Aberfoyle and later of Glasgow.  His father was James Monteith of Aberfoyle, 1670 to 1730.

Earl Monteith Whyman.
Wellington, New Zealand
