Margaret Monk nee Thomson (1838-1930) of Ireland.
Later lived at The Conway, south of Kaikoura.
She lived to be 91. Wife of Richard Monk.

Richard and Margaret Monk were early colonists who lived at The Conway, halfway between Cheviot and Kaikoura. Margaret came from Corkhill, Ireland; and Richard from Gloucestershire, England. The couple had twelve children and were married for 60 years. Richard died in 1916 so perhaps these paintings were made before his death on the occasion of the couple's Diamond wedding anniversary in 1915 (the link will take you to an article on PapersPast). This is a lovely depiction of Margaret Monk in a pastoral setting showing not only a woman of strong character but also wearing a most excellent dress!
Richard Monk (1829-1916), of England, early colonist.
Lived in later years at The Conway, south of Kaikoura

Richard Monk lived to be 87. The Marlborough Express published a lengthy life history on him in 1914. And there are also obituaries in the  Marlborough Express and the Star at his passing in Oct 1916 which are well worth reading.
