Hello, Elizabeth Begbie is the sister of John Begbie (my gt gt grandfather) and Robert Begbie, and daughter of Frederick and Margaret Begbie. The family moved from Scotland, via Cape of Good Hope (where they lived fro some years) to New Zealand. Elizabeth Begbie was born in Springburn, Glasgow on 4th of February 1856. She married aged 24 years to James Henry Turner (1853 – 1922) at the home of her parents in Pukekohe East. Her brothers Robert Begbie and John Begbie and Elizabeth’s friend Mary Helen Comrie were witnesses. James Henry Turner was born on 5 April 1853 in Leeds, Yorkshire, England to parents James Turner and Mary Downs. James and Elizabeth farmed on land on Razorback Road, Pukekohe East and had the following children:
• Mary (1881 – ?)
• Alfred Henry (1883 – 1964)
