Is it possible that his wife had the surname "Pine"?
Granddaughter Jane Felstead named her youngest child "Theophilus Pine" and grandson William named his youngest "John Pine". In both families the only other obvious surname as a middle name was "Mitchell". The name "Pine" must have had some meaning to the Hales and Joel senior's wife is the closest direct ancestor of both. The 15 or so years and the expanse of the Tasman Sea between the two namings and the lack of a known "Pine" in the other side of either family seems to support this theory.
