Hi John,

This article from Clutha Leader 9 January 1920 (click on link) may help to answer some of your research questions. Providing it is the correct family. 

A check on BDMNZ has the following births 1860-1880 with parents named as Margaret & John:

1860 - John;   1861 - John;   1863 - Jessie; 1867 - James Alexander; 1869 - Mary Ann;   1873 - John;  1873 - Isabella Jane;   1876 - Margaret. 

There is a reasonable amount of info available on the above family from Warepa and Roslyn.

Cheers from Scotland - Séan

Hi John,

After reading the article from the Clutha Leader 9 January 1920 im sure this is my relations as my grandfather was George Arnold Wright a farmer of Clinton.

Our family had a batch & holidayed at Kaka point often, so that's another point of interest.

Thanks,

 Andrew Wright
