My BLAIKIE/BLAKIE family arrived in New Zealand in 1860 in the 'Robert Henderson'. James and Isabella nee HALL and their children came from Hassendeanbank which is very close to Hawick in Rox, the Borders. I am keen to find James' family. He was a farmer or aglab who married his employer's daughter, after which he was a cattle dealer. On arriving in NZ, he bought a lot of land in the southern part of the country and in conjunction with his sons, developed a number of farms.
