The Charlotte Jane
This may be Ann (nee Dixon), who in 1900 lived in Loburn. If so, see Mrs Kingsbury.
A family member has confirmed that this is Mrs Joseph Barker nee Ann Dixon (August 9, 1840-March 12, 1906). On September 24, 1862, she married Joseph Barker (1829-1910) and lived at Barkers Road, Loburn.1
Joseph and Ann had four sons and four daughters. Two of the girls, Lily and Maude, lived at the Barkers Road property for many years.2
I have a photo of the Joseph Barker family group taken outside their homestead (in Barkers Rd?) showing the same woman seated next to Joseph, with her daughter Maude seated next to her. (When I was a child, I visited Aunty Maude when she was living at the Archer Memorial Home in Colombo Street, Beckenham, Christchurch.) Other members of the family who are in this photo are Ida, Amie, Goerge and Henry, as well as my grandfather Albert Stanley.
My grandfather and his wife Edith lived in a small house in Kippenberger Avenue, Rangiora. I visited them here when I was a child.
I remember my father talking of his cousin, Doug Kingsbury. He is no doubt related somehow to the Mrs Kingsbury who was responsible for the post on this website. My aunties, Elsie Oulton & Edith Spurway, who are sisters of my father Wally, both live in Hamilton. They are in their 80s.
I would be keen for some contact with any relatives.
