  • Notes 
    • Family legend is that Isabella was an orphan with no family of her own I have no information as to this and a search for her birth in Scotland covering 1850 to 1854 inclusive produced 37 candidates but none with the right parentage
      When she married William Alexander in Knox Church Dunedin she gave her age as 28 born Scotland occupation housemaid resident Dunedin her father Charles Stewart labourer and her mother Christina McLaren
      The couple went to live in Woodlands near Invercargill where William was farming but later I believe they became shopkeepers in Winton, eventually moving to Palmerston North

      She became the much loved "Grannie Alexander" of New Zealand family lore Could be relied upon to provide help to new emigrants from the old country until they found their feet in the new
