The photos above are of John Bristowe (circa. 1885), who married and lived in the West Indies, mainly in Belize, and of his youngest sister, Julia Wilhelmina Banks Bristowe (circa. 1900), who married Edward Waddington in 1849. Waddington was appointed a surgeon in the British Militia forces engaged in fighting a Maori uprising in the young colony of New Zealand. He went to New Zealand in 1864, leaving his wife with their two surviving sons (of four) to raise. In 1873 he sent for his sons to assist him with managing land he had acquired from the New Zealand goverment in reward for his services. Julia Waddington (née Bristowe) was effectively deserted.
