Thank you ngairedith. My grandparents took me to Patea when I was a child. I did not know Isabella's surname was Mackay. Thank you again. I am now looking for her parents. The Howitts from the UK. Are you a relative of mine?

Dear Ngairedith, I thank you, I appreciated the information you have shared with me. Would you by any chance have any information on Mary (nee Botham) Howitt the author of the spider and the fly. I cannot fit in where her and her husband fit in the family line.I remember my grandmother telling me about my grandad Gordon Howitt Charteris' uncle: Arthur Howitt. The gentleman that found the bodies of Burke and Wills in Australia last century. Thanking you kindly. Diane Jordan (nee Charteris).
