  • Notes 
    • According to family sources, Donald had travelled to New Zealand before his marriage to Jane and had purchased land to farm. When he sent back to Scotland for Jane to come out to New Zealand and marry him, Jane's father refused to let her travel alone. Donald had to sell the land to be able to afford the trip back to Scotland to marry Jane. Consequently, their new life in New Zeland was not as prosperous as it could have been.
