Francis Gerald R-I was my great grandfather. Richard - the author of this comment is my first cousin. Francis was briefly married to Meri however his four children were born to his 2nd wife, Ivy Augusta Stock, all in Christchurch. My grandfather, Hugh Oswald then proceed north and did stock work in the central North Island. It was here that he met and married my grandmother, a local from Turangi. Due to the ribbing he got from his in-laws re: the name Ramsbottom, my grandfather dropped it and we have become just plain "Isherwood". However to find out if we are related when the name pops up, all we have to do is ask the question - are you a Ramsbottom-Isherwood. Thanks to my grandfather's brother, we have a decent amount of information and photos, which I am now obliged to dig out and re-read. Hope this helps.
