    • BIOGRAPHY

      Margaret Redpath, known as Maggie, was born in Milton, Otago in 18641. Maggie married William Ellis in 1885 and the couple moved to their farm at Seaward Downs, Southland where three children were born. William died in 1889. William's probate file shows that the 123 acre farm produced milk and some oats.

      Maggie remarried in 1892, marrying David Dreaver and continuing to live on the farm at Seaward Downs. Maggie and David had a daughter and a son, but David died in 1894.

      In 1900 Maggie remarried again, to John Henry Kitto and they had a son. Maggie and John farmed at Seaward Downs until September 1908 when the farm was sold and they moved to Invercargill, Southland. Maggie died in 1941 and was buried in Invercargill. In her will Maggie allowed her husband John to occupy her house in Invercargill for the rest of his life and her four living children inherited her wealth. John died in 1955 and was buried in Invercargill.

      1 Maggies son Raymond stated in her Probate file that Maggie was born at Ettrick, Otago.
