  • Notes 
    • Robert Robertson And Margeret Robertson, of Aberdeenshire in Scotland a nd their six daughters left Glasgow on the 30 May 1860 aboard the ship S S Henrietta, arriving in Dunedin on the 24th September 1860. According t o the Otago Colonist Newspaper it was an eventfull voyage with several d eaths on board on the way due to rampant disease, including Robert Robe rtson as well as nine others. As a result Margeret Robertson and her si x daughters, including Christina Buchan Robertson, who was only 1 year o ld arrived alone on our shores, the legend of which continues in our fa mily today.
