john Mclachlan/mclauchlan
« on: Thursday 11 March 21 03:08 GMT (UK) »
 Please note: This family have no relationship to mine: The story that I know. A child came out from Scotland when young used to wear a kilt His name was John. His father also John. He was born after an irregular Scots marriage. Mothers name unknown said to be from Royal Stuart Clan. His father John a highland baird.. When John was little his mothers brothers came and took her home. Now he and his father came to NZ. Have been looking at all sorts of fami.y trees concerning this family and nothing seems to be quite right. I also know that they were in Nelson so also in this story is they came on the CRESSWELL 1859. but all I can find is a John Mclachlan, wife and 2 children. John Mclachlan snr apparently married again and had more children but I dont know if that was scotland before he came or here in Nz. John jnr on the Family trees states he was born as John Scott Mclachlan born July 1851 Glasgow or Stirlingshire.( I cannot find this on Scotlands people) He then married Evelyn HODGKINSON 1877 NZ and had 2 Daughters Alice Maude and Francis Evelyn and adopted a maude Mary GILBERT  John jun died may 23 1925. I cannot find John snrs marriage, death or  marriage. to whom or children. I would like some constructive proof for this Thanks Lnr

Hi lnr

Is that the correct year of voyage, for the "Cresswell"  ??

Seems the 1859 voyage was London to Lyttelton - cant see the  surname McLACHLAN / McLAUCHLAN (or other variant), on the passenger list ??

The 1895 death is on Ancestry as

John Mc Lachlan
Death Date:   Jul-Aug-Sep 1895
Registration Place:   Wairau, Auckland, New Zealand
Folio Number:   1481


I think Wairau is actually Nelson/Marlborough is it not?
