Query by Ozziescot

I do not know her parents names ie Motherwell. I believe Motherwell was her fathers' name.
Thank you for adding me and any help you can give

MARRIAGE.

Groom: Ernest COTTERELL.
Bride: Kathleen J MOTHERWELL.
Year married: 1915.
Place: Rockdale district, N.S.W.
Registration number: 6114/1915.

If you obtain the marriage certificate it will give you a few more details, including Kathleen's age, birth place and parents names.

Posted certificates cost $48.00 and $35.00 online.
You can also obtain a transcript from a Transcript Agent for about $20.00.

Full details available from the Registry of BDM N.S.W.

Had a look at the New Zealand Births but no Kathleen recorded under MOTHERWELL.

Good luck.

Kathleen's death record on NSW BDM online records her father as Andrew Thompson & Rose. Some online trees record similar. As 'Tonkin' states above there is no birth records in NZ for Kathleen.

There is a 1898 passenger list for the Oruba from Plymouth which has a Mrs Rose Motherwell (widow) and 2 children Eileen (4) and Kathleen (2) contracted to land Sydney.

There is a possible match with Andrew Thomson Motherwell who died in NZ 17 March 1896. A bank clerk. He is mentioned as having also resided in Rockhampton, Queensland. There is a curious redacted line within his will leaving £1000 to Miss Rosa Rothwell residing at 19 Reginald St, Dublin. All other assets are left to his brothers. If the correct Andrew Thomson Motherwell he was born in New Monkland, Scotland.
