Thanks very much for this, Jennifer. Many of the signatures are hard to read clearly so I'm not surprised this one was transcribed incorrectly. I've fixed it now.

The surname is incorrectly transcribed. It is QUEREE. Louisa Quérée was my great-great aunt. She was born in Trinity Parish, Jersey, Channel Islands in 1863. She emigrated to New Zealand with her parents (Edouard John and Mary Ann [nee Le Cornu]) and 7 siblings in January 1875, arriving in Lyttelton later that year. Louisa was a tailoress and worked with her brother George, a tailor who had a business in Cashel Street, Christchurch. She never married and died in Christchurch in 1952 at the age of 89.
