 clipboard.gif (2334 bytes)My Grandfather, James SPENCE b. in Bristol,  and his wife,  Mary Ann, nee GRENFELL of St.Just, Penwith, Cornwall, arrived in the S.Island of NZ. - Canterbury Area - on the 'Otago', in August 1865. Worked on a sheep station in Malvern, Canterbury for a few years, moving to Otonga East, North of Whangarei. (North Island)  in the late 1870's where they farmed. 
 
They had one son, my father, James SPENCE Jnr. who married Olive Wilson SANDERSON. They spent  some years in San Francisco and Vancouver BC. where both their daughters were born, returning to New Zealand in the 1930's

Length 236 ft., depth 15.5 ft., built at Glasgow for the Panama Company in September 1863. She made her first passage to Melbourne  Aust. in 52 days, under steam and sail, then regarded as a very fast time. (She was totally wrecked south of Nugget Point (NZ) on December 4, 1876.
