    I have just been on findmypast and discovered that Francis' wife Eugenie Elizabeth travelled back to Wellington on the "Rimutaka" departing from London on 26 May 1891. She was entered as "Widow".
    I wonder if Francis was buried in England or taken back to New Zealand - a little bit more research for me.

    As I said in an earlier Reply - many thanks to everyone for their time investigating my query.

    I think if we found the original manifest sheet with all details across the top, including, name of captain, weight etc, from where and arrived where then the date will be on that. It might turn up somewhere, sometime, at least you know the name of the ship now.

    Yes I do now have the name of the ship which was my main goal - so once again the "sleuths" have delivered.

    It looks like his operation was for Kidney trouble. A report of which can be found in the AUCKLAND STAR, dated, 27 JULY 1891

    The Aorangi would have followed this route to and from New Zealand
    They [the steamships] travelled out via the Cape of Good Hope, and back via Cape Horn, as the sailing clippers had done, but more than halved the passage times. Whereas the sailing ships frequently sighted no land between the UK and New Zealand, the steamers stopped at Plymouth, Teneriffe, Capetown and Hobart on the outward journey, and at Montevideo, Rio de Janeiro and Teneriffe on the return. These routes were maintained until 1914, when the Panama Canal opened.

    In the same paper that Terry found the notice of the Aorangi's arrival (Western Morning News 4th May 1891) is also this little snippet
    When the steamship Aorangi, which arrived at Plymouth on Saturday, left Rio Janeiro the yellow fever still prevailed there, and at Teneriffe, she was kept under quarantine.

    That wouldn't have done Francis much good as he was travelling to England for a serious operation :(

    Many thanks for that little snippet - the sort of detail that makes a family story more readable.
