Mary Davidson was born Mary Kelman in
Banchory Kincardineshire, Scotland on 10 June 1828. She married Robert
Davidson in 1848 in Banchory and they had five children (James b.1848,
Jessie b.1850, Robert b.1851, Ann b. 1854, George b.1856). The family
emigrated to Otago, arriving at Port Chalmers in October 1870 on board
the James Nicol Fleming. Also on that voyage was Mary’s brother James
and his family. A diary of this voyage by Robertson Stephen is held at
the Hocken Library. Robert Davidson was a sawmiller and the family
settled in Riverton where another Kelman relative had settled a number
of years previously. Mary and Robert returned to Dunedin later in life
where their children lived. Mary is buried with her husband and son.
