The person is looking for information to do with the McLean family who originally came from the Isle of Mull, Scotland.
Parents were Charles and Christina McLean. They had about 9 children, three of whom came to NZ about 1911 (or before). The sons who came were Donald (1884-1966), Callum Campbell (1885-1918), and Donald Archibald (1889-1977).
|Ada & Donald McLean c 1918|
We're looking for any information on Ada McLean nee Norton. She is buried in the Riverton Cemetery as is Callum Campbell, Donald's brother. Is she from a family in NZ or did she come from England?
She died in 1922, aged 30, but we wonder if she had any other children before then.
We're also looking for the identities of the people in the following photos.
|Ada and son but who are the others?|
In this photo, the woman reclining is Ada McLean and probably her son, Donald William Charles. We'd like to know who the girls and woman kneeling at the back are. Nieces? Cousins? Is this Ada's mother?
Then there are these two women whose names were written on the backs of the photos but with no surname. They look like sisters and probably dated more recently than the rest of the photos. Do you know them or their connection with the McLeans?
If you can help in any way, please contact us via email. Thanks!
We're open Sundays, 2pm-4pm, and at your request.
