I am researching the ancestors of Rev Robert Hutchinson Catherwood born Orkney, Scotland? ca 1875. He served in NZ as a Presbyterian Minister from 1903. Died 1938 in Otago. Can anyone help?

A correction to my earlier message. RH Catherwood was born in Otago NZ in 1870 son of Alfred and Isabella Catherwood. Would appreciate any info on this family. Alfred may have arrived in NZ around 1860 from Glasgow.
