Remittance Men!
« on: Thursday 02 February 17 06:31 GMT (UK) »
I just came across a really interesting article (including names and details) about Remittance Men who came to NZ!

Still looking for the arrival into NZ of my Early Settler William McAughtrie - but nope, he's not on their list, but hopefully it will be of help and/or interest to someone! 

Cheers
Jeanne 😄

Thanks for that Jeanne,

One of those remittance men mentioned, Ronald TRUE went back to England and murdered a prostitute in 1922.

Ronald True also features briefly in my family history narrative. He was finally apprehended here in New Zealand after stealing a bicycle from my great uncle while he was in church. This was reported in the local newspapers. From petty theft to murder........
