Caption

Julia Turton was born in England on 11 March 1832. She married John Erskine Douglas Stewart on 17 January 1854. John died on 2 August 1870. Their son Michael arrived in Auckland, New Zealand, on board the Lady Jocelyn on 17 August 1878. It is possible that he arrived in Katikati as a farm cadet. Michael married Frances Vesey Montgomery Stewart in Auckland in 1886. Michael's widowed mother, Julia, must have visited the family in Katikati, New Zealand, as this photograph was taken in Katikati in December of 1898. Julia died on 17 September 1899.
