Notes for Caroline Maria FURRIAN
Her son’s death certificate gives her name as Caroline Maria Anderson, but that’s clearly a mistake.

All my information about her comes essentially from Joanna McKinnon, who has done extensive (and hugely impressive) research on her and her husband.

Joanna McKinnon wrote a book about James Anderson and Caroline Maria Furrian (and their descendants), which is not widely available. However, it’s a wonderful book, so if you can get it, do so. You might be able to order a copy through Snapfish, although that might not be so easy.

Caroline Maria was herself descended from the Hatfields, very early settlers on the east coast of the USA. That story has also been discovered by Joanna McKinnon, whose information I reproduce here.
Notes for James (Spouse 1)
His son’s death certificate (William Warner’s) says that his name was “Ferrow James Anderson”. This is certainly a typo, and the death certificate is all muddled up with his mother’s maiden name.

He came to NZ in the “Eastfield” on 12 December, 1857. Joanna McKinnon has told me all about him, but I haven’t yet put this information into my web page. In brief, he lived in Auckland for a bit, went bankrupt, bought land at Leigh, didn’t work out, went back to Auckland. When he died he was reputed to be the oldest Freemason in NZ.

The Star, 28 November 1894 says
“The Auckland Herald reports:- A very old and respected colonist passed away last evening (Nov. 22) in the person of Mr. James Anderson, who died at the residence of his son at Ponsonby, at the ripe age of eighty-eight. He was down town last week, and the complaint which has carried him off was stoppage of the bowels. Mr Anderson was stated to be the oldest Freemason in New Zealand, and some time ago he received a handsome address from his mother lodge in London. He was a tailor by trade, but had retired from business for many years. For some years he was resident in Christchurch, but for a goodly period has been living in Auckland. Deceased’s wife died some five or six years ago. He leaves a grown-up family. During his last illness Dr Walker attended him. Mr Anderson was vrery much esteemed by those who had the pleasure of his acquaintance, and his death will be heard of with regret.”
