Immigration January 25, 1854 (Age 21 years)
Note: There is unsupported information that he was the Able Seaman John Stalker, who arrived as a member of the crew of the "Independence" which had sailed from the South Sea Islands. This could have been from any of the island communities such as New Caledonia, Vanuatu, Solomon Islands etc.
