GEORGE LUMSDEN NEW ZEALAND
Posted by: Maree Harris (ID *****1399) Date: December 04, 2011 at 00:06:17

Hi my name is Maree and I live in good old NZ. I am a decendant of George Lumsden, (my GGG Grandfather) born 12 March 1815, in Fifeshire, Scotland, to John Lumsden (b 1760, d 1833) and Christian Lumsden (nee Henderson b. 1773, d. 1850) George was a watchmaker, who learnt the trade from his uncle in Pittenweem, Fife. In 1858 he went to Geelong, Australia, with his wife Christina (nee Anderson) on the ship Ravenseraig. There he had a son Thomas James Lumsden (b.1854)(my GG Grandfather). In 1861 George and his family moved to Invercargill, New Zealand, where they settled and stayed. George was mayor of Invercargill 1873-1874 and again 1877-1878. He was also a member of parliment. George died 1904 and is buried in the Invercargill cemetry with his wife. Is there anyone out there who knows if George had any brothers and sisters?? Also has anyone got anymore information on his parents, John and Christian Lumsden?? Marriage dates etc?? Is there anymore informaton that goes back further tham John and Christian?? (e.g Johns parents) I would be greatful for any info

Thanks heaps
