I'm the Kenneth James.
Apparently, John May uplifted his family and sailed for NZ on the Ionic
in about 1866 (I have to locate a shipping list) Mary Jane had married
a Capt. John Henderson, but was apparently given few options but to
sail with the family and John Henderson followed later.
They settled in Wellington, in Johnsonville and Jessie and John
Alexander were well known in the community. There was a farm called
Glen Ugie, a house called Inverugie, and many other things. A small
Methodist cemetery in Johnsonville has John and Jane May's graves with
a gravestone just like the one in Peterhead Cemetery to John May (John
and Alexander's father).
Hope you find this interesting.
