A big thank you to Richard Forgie for sending me this message ...

... I read with much interest your review of data on Forgies in New Zealand.

Blanche Forgie, Leopold Forgie and Claude Forgie were the first three children of James Campbell Forgie and Mary Maria Hurrell.
They had 12 children.

James was a baker and Mary the daughter of a building inspector.

In the 19th Century there were representatives of four Forgie families in New Zealand:

* The descendants of Alexander Forgie and Janet Campbell settled in Auckland.

* The descendants of Robert Goodfellow Forgie oeperated a grocery store in Colombo St, Christchurch.

* Thomas Forgie lived in Naseby and there was a family of Forgies at Port Chalmers.


Thank you Richard, this will be of interest and help to the many FORGIE researchers
