Back in 2011 I wrote about Phipps descendants, The Clifford Sisters, and suggested a reason for their move to New Zealand. I thank Robert Barrack, a researcher and distant cousin for sharing details of this Kiwi branch with me way back then.
Today I am penning a short post on Ethelinda's daughter, Sarah Gertrude Eyton who married another Phipps descendant, her first cousin, William MacPherson,
|This family chart shows Sarah and William's relationship|
Sarah went to live with William in Fiji soon after their marriage.
Robert Barrack states "William married my grandmother Sarah G Eyton in Palmerston North, NZ in 1897, the two meeting for the first time, the day before the wedding."
