Biography contributed by Katherine Blakeley

Charlotte Jane St de Croix/Caux was born about 1837 in St Helier, Jersey in the Channel Islands – the daughter of Charles Alexandre de Caux, a doctor, and Elizabeth Louise Guerand de la Quesnerre.

She married Philippe James Newbury, a baker, in Jersey on 9 October 1859.

They had six children before they emigrated to Otago in 1874 on the Atrato.

When the ship arrived there was a measles epidemic on board - their youngest daughter Florence died on Quarantine Island in the Otago Harbour and is buried there.

The family settled in Dunedin and their last child was born the year they arrived.

When Annie signed the suffrage petition they were living in George St, Dunedin.

Annie and Philip celebrated their Diamond Wedding anniversary in 1919 and Philip died the following year.

Annie died on 18 August 1923 and is buried with Philip in the Andersons Bay Cemetery.
