Hi Neil

May I take up your kind offer.

This painting in the Fletcher Trust Collection is of some interest to me

W GEISLER (b.1828,d.1897)
Knight's Swamp Motueka
Oil On Canvas, 190 x 275.
(it can be googled using the title)

Where is Knight's swamp and what did the family do there in the ?1860-1880 before some shifted to Auckland?
William and Mary Knight and 10 children are the family.

I note that you have "Campbell" as one of your interests.  Are you interested in the details of  James Wishart Campbell.
b. 23/6/1873 Tezpur, Assam, India, d. 24/11/1956 Christchurch, NZ.  A dentist in Rangiora, Christchurch, Kumara and Hamilton.  Educated in Scotland and engineering apprentice in Edinburgh (age 17).

Cheers

Hi Malnz
Knight's swamp is/was in the Moutere plains area of Motueka/Tasman between Motueka and Upper Moutere. It was part of section 63 in the area of the German Settlement at Upper Moutere but apparently allocated originally to Humphrey Gifford. It was in the area of the present Flaxmore Road off the now Moutere Highway. Found on http://lynly.gen.nz/SPMoutereGermanSettlers.pdf
I will try to find out more. No sorry, my Campbell is William c1803 Scotland - either 1866 or 1881!!??Auckland, a carpenter who arrived on the Jane Gifford 1842.
Happy hunting!
