Dear Toni,

I am glad that you wrote of the settlers. My Great great great
Grandfather, William Sinclair came to New Zealand as a settler as early 
as 1842. He worked hard as life was very limited back in those days. New 
Zealand was only beginning for settlers back then and it was a very 
rugged, wild place.He was also in Australia where he lost his wife to 
illness brought about by the rugged conditions the settlers faced. 
Broken hearted he returned to New Zealand with two daughters and a baby 
son. He went on the become a very prominant and well liked man in New 
Zealand. My nana was always telling stories of  
of William and his sons she told of how Scotland provided him with the 
skills needed to face life as an early settler.

Sincerely, Jenny Coster
New Zealand
