I am sorry. I now realise that this person cannot be Rose Robinson, although the information that I put here about her is correct she did not marry Thomas until 1898. So this must be Thomas's first wife whose name was Anna. Anna was born Anna Smith on 12 December 1858 to Peter Smith and Elisabeth Charlton in Durham, England. She died 13 May 1897 in Brunnerton and is buried in Stillwater Cemetery near Brunnerton

Subsequent research has shown that Rose came to NZ with her parents in 1862, not 1864

Mrs T Robinson was the second wife of Thomas Robinson Cordial maker. She was known as Rosa and later as Rose, although curiously she is Jane on her headstone. Rose married a Frenchman Paul Peillon 6 November 1882. Paul was killed in the Brunner Mine disaster and Rose married Thomas Robinson in June 1998. Rose was born in Melbourne, Australia, the daughter of Frederick George Cooper, also known as George Frederick Cooper and Catherine Perry. She came to New Zealand with her parents approximately 1864
