James Udall lived in Oamaru, listed as a Merchant. Don't know where he came from but was lost overboard the ship "Beautiful Star" in November 1884.

There is this article that discusses the election during 1871 http://paperspast.natlib.govt.nz/cgi-bin/paperspast?a=d&cl=search&d=NOT18710718.2.10&srpos=70&e=-------10--61----0james+udall-ARTICLE%2cILLUSTRATION-

As Nola mentioned, he apparently was lost overboard sailing from Dunedin to Oamaru. Quite a good article is on paperspast http://paperspast.natlib.govt.nz/cgi-bin/paperspast?a=d&cl=search&d=ESD18841124.2.17&srpos=16&e=-------10--11----0james+udall-- which gives a brief history of the man and then information on his loss overboard.

His will is viewable https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-C9BC-D966-Q?i=104&wc=Q8C5-2GM%3A1588878195%2C1588877620%3Fcc%3D1865481&cc=1865481 and makes mention of his wife Jane.
