Marj is right. You should be looking for them in 1906. I went to
"Ancestors on Board"
...and searched for Maidens on the ship Ruapehu and a year range of
1905 to 1908 and found
Last name First name Age Sex Year of
departure Departure port Destination country Destination
MAIDENS E S 32 F 1906 London New Zealand Wellington
MAIDENS T F 33 M 1906 London New Zealand Wellington
MAIDENS W C 9 F 1906 London New Zealand Wellington
If you then click for the images, there is a charge (details on the website).
