    Family History from Invercargill

  • Notes 
    • Lyn Wright reports that she has located Williams school reports in the library at Invercargill (Feb2004)and I quote_____
      William is entry no 323 at Woodlands School as posted in the school register held in the Invercargill public library box 367 Date of admission is 15th Oct 1888 no previous school attended He passed standards 1 to 5 and left school 20 Aug 1895 and was removed from the register at the end of that year destination "home" Presumably he went on to help his father on the farm and later in the shop in Winton

      William continued in the shop-keeper tradition in Palmerstone North NZ
      He was left out of the will of his uncle James Alexander of Aberdeen All others got £12 in NZ currency
      Uncle James' rascally nephew who helped in drafting the will ( greatly to his own advantage) was clearly not aware of Williams existence
