  • Family stories say he abandoned his wife and child in Dunedin, and moved to British Columbia in Canada where he changed his name to Thomas McDonald. One story says that the wife's child was not his child and he was very embarrased when he found out that his wife had had an affair. and so he left New Zealand. Another says he adopted a boy named Roy - but whether that was done in NZ or in Canada, is not specified.
