Ruth - or babsandpete - I noted with interest your listing regarding Colin and Catherine Mcrae. Recently my cousin from the Marlborough Sounds forwarded me several letters written by our 3xgreat-grandmother, an excerpt as follows:

I gave music lessons to his daughters, who turned out two of the finest looking girls in the colony, and who both married gentlemen, and I received great kindnesses from poor Colin who was rather eccentric in his habits. His wife was a fine body and very goodlooking…

Many thanks.
