*HUGHES, John. Details from descendants of John have sent me information in relation to the one mentioned
 on this page.It appears that there may have been two John Hughes, both Business men at the time, but the 
correct information re the above John Hughes should be the following:
John Hughes, publican (of several hotels), general store, gold weighing station, butcher shop, bakery and 
one of the wealthiest men in Greymouth of the day was born in Aghdavoyle, Co. Armagh, Ireland in 1842. 
He arrived on the Bombay in March 1865. His Intention to Marry Application (1870) also bears out his NZ 
entry date, along with other family history.
It appears that there were likely 2 John Hughes - the Welsh Plasterer and the above John Hughes, 
the publican, store keeper and horse breeder, and somewhere along the line they have been linked together.
For further information on the above John Hughes, contact John Hughes jm.hughes@xtra.co.nz
