Emma, Harriet and William Gilchrist

New Zealand this time for a family from Innerleithen, Peeblesshire. These 3 siblings are in the 1881 census at Innerleithen. Their parents have just died and their sister drowned in the Tweed in 1870. Another brother, John is in Liverpool in 1871.

Emma born 1845 Kent died in 1888 at Dunedin and is mentioned on the family gravestone in the Innerleithen graveyard. I found her funeral notice in the Evening Star 1888

I haven't found her on a ship and wondered if her brother and sister also went to New Zealand. Wm was born 1861in Kells, Kirkcudbrightshire and Harriet was born 1847 probably in Kent like her sister.
Parents of this 3 were John Gilchrist born Kirkcudbrightshire c 1811 and his wife Charlotte Wilkens of Rochester, Kent b 1815.

Any help appreciated.

Re: Emma, Harriet and William Gilchrist

May be of some use...

NZ Cemetery Index
Emma Gilchrist
Lived in Kaikorai [5 years in NZ]
d. 29 Sept - bur. 30 Sept 1888
[Class 1] Lot 9/10 Block 106.
Cause of death just says 'Cardiac'
Informant, H Gourley

That would put her arrival c1883.

Geoff

EDIT: Even though she died at the end of Q3, reg is noted at Q4 [Anc]

Re: Emma, Harriet and William Gilchrist

Just found a marriage for a Harriet Gilchrist to Archibald Dickson in New Zealand in 1885. Doesn't say where - is from FmP.

Emma's funeral notice says "leave the residence of Mr A Dickson, Kaikerai" so this looks a possible marriage for Harriet.

Re: Emma, Harriet and William Gilchrist

Very interesting! No familiar first names there but could well be.

Marriage for a Wm - kind of infuriating that there is no place.

New Zealand Marriages

William
Last name Gilchrist
Registration year 1885
Spouse's first name(s) Agnes
Spouse's last name Miller
Registration number 1885/2907

Re: Emma, Harriet and William Gilchrist

Kaikorai is just west of Dunedin so that would be Port Chalmers (Otago) for arrival port.

A partial passenger list for this one shows none of them but the ship carried about 300 passengers.

Caroline
Ship: 984 tons
Captain: Hardy
Surgeon Superintendent:
Sailed Glasgow February 19th 1883 - arrived Otago May 23rd 1883

Searching arrivals to NZ is not easy. Very few arrivals have complete passenger lists.

Re: Emma, Harriet and William Gilchrist

Thanks Gibbo, Link worked fine. I might be making 2 and 2 add up to 5 then as there is no Harriet or Archibald Dickson listed in the grave. But then there are no A Dicksons listed at all and the funeral notice def said Mr A Dickson.
