Thankyou so much for that especially the date, ( I had a feeling the date of 1858 must of been wrong.) as James (I think his second name was Richard) and Elizabeth had their 1st child in NZ so they must of have arr at NZ between 1870 and 1873 when Alexander were born. James brother William John Beattie also came to NZ and farmed in Geraldine. South Canterbury. He also had a son Alexander born there in 1873!
