... I have come across your list of Finnie marriages and wondered about your interest in or connection with the list. Marion McMillan who married David Finnie was the sister of my great great grandmother. The sisters immigrated about 5 years apart from the McMillan family home in Campbelltown, Kintyre, Scotland. Marion arrived in NZ in 1870; she travelled to accompany her young niece and reunite that child with her parents who had previously immigrated separately (leaving the illegitimate child behind, presumably with Marion's parents) but by then married in Dunedin.
