I am so glad to see this reference, and so meaningful, to Georgina (why is the initial 'J'? Perhaps that is how she spelt her name.) I know only one comment on Georgina from Walter Campbell's visit to Donald Gollan's Mangatarata in 1871 ( see Google Meinertzhagen): "Gollan's step-daughter Miss Georgy de Pelichet is a great contrast, being quiet, lady-like, rather pretty and about seventeen." She was born shortly after her father was kiilled in 1855. Her mother died in 1860. I would have to look up when she died but into the 20th century and at Ashburn Hall. She travelled to England with Donald Gollan and her half-brother Spencer in 1875. I believe she probably had a paternal aunt alive in England, a Georgiana. She had a brother, Louis, living until about 1913, well known and respected in Hawkes Bay.
