    When my grandmother Isabel Alexander (m/s Jaffrey) was nearing the end of her days she decided to “redd up” her affairs. Following on family tradition she set a bonfire. However when it came to burning the Alexander family bibles, she hesitated, fearful perhaps of the accounting shortly to come As it happened her son Robert and his wife Mary came home on a visit from their adopted country of New Zealand and she prevailed on Robbie to do the needful So risking his immortal soul to please his mother, he burnt the bibles but without telling her he removed the frontispiece pages and took them back to N Z with him
    In the course of time he passed them on to his son George and in turn they were left to George’s widow Freda who saved them for me There were two bibles involved, one belonging to John Alexander and his wife Jannet Morrison, and the other to son William Alexander and his wife Isabella Brown.
    Uncle Robbie continued the tradition as best he was able, adding his own New Zealand family in turn
