VUW Wellington Scottish Interest Group-Ship’s Boy from Rothesay to well-known Wellington Master Mariner

October 28

MemberLindsay Campbell‘s great grandfather James Campbell (born 1825 – family from Kilfinan, Argyll) served his apprenticeship in British waters; came to New Zealand in 1855 – had had time in India (cholera) and the Australian gold fields. Few internal roads in the country so coastal shipping was vital; James and two brothers very involved. This being the last meeting of the year, we shall have a brief review of 2024 and look forward to 2025, at 197 Willis St, between Dixon & Ghuznee Streets. Info: https://wellyscots.wordpress.com
