Death of Captain Moodie.

Captain Robert Troup Moodie, an old and respected colonist, died at his residence, 'Airlie', Albyn street, Strathfield, early on Suuday morning. Deceased, who was 77 years of age, was a member of the Marine Board at the time of his death, and had filled the position for the past 15 years. He first came to the colonies in 1818 in charge of the ship Dorothy, of New castle-on-Tyne, and subsequently with the ship Hannah in 1851. With Cdptains B Monro and Knight, later on, he received a commission to bring out the new ships comprising the fleet of the A.S.N. Company, viz , the City of Sydney (Captain Moodie), the Boomerang (Captain Monro), and the Illalong (Captain Knight). The City of Sydney was put on to the Sydney and Melbourne passenger and cargo traffic, and during her running carried 50,000 passengers between the ports without fatality or accident, beyond -that one passenger sustained a broken leg. The vessel was wrecked at Green Cape on November 6, 1862. Captain Moodie, after the fullest enquiry, was exonerated from all blame in connec tion with the mishap. He was next placed in charge of the Urara and eventually transferred to the Rangitira, in the Brisbane and Melbourne trades. He resigned from the A.S.N. Company, in 1863, and entered upon the profession of a marine surveyor, in which he was very successful. Again, he entered into an agreement with Messrs Gilchrist, Watt, and Co., of Sydney, to manage their extensive shipping business, having to handle a large sailing fleet, the first steamers of the Orient Company, and those engaged in the San Francisco mail ser-vice. After 14 years satisfactory ser vice with this company, Captain Moodie retired, obtaining then the position as a member of the Marine Board, rendered vacant by the resig-nation of Mr J. B. Want, M L.O., who strongly recommended his appointment.. He was also a member of the Steam Navigation Board up to the time of its abolition. As the managing trustee of the Presbyterian Cemetery at the Necropolis he was held in the greatest respect by those who had occasion to consult him and, strangely enough, was the last of the original trustees of all denomina tions. Whilst in the command of the City of Sydney he conveyed the first intercolonial teams of cricketers from Sydney to Melbourne, and from Mel- -bourne to Sydney, and also brought the first English eleven into Port. Jackson. With the same steamer, in the early fifties, he made a unique voyage to Suez and back on the oc casion of the break down of the mail steamer. For this he received some very flattering testimonials. It fell to his lot to convey to Taranaki from Sydney two companies of the twelfth Foot and a detachment of the Royal Artillery, on the occasion of the New Zealand war. On the occasion also of the memorable Canoona rush (Queens land) Captain Moodie represented, with much tact and ability, the A .S.N. Company's interests at Rockhampton. Deceased leaves a Widow, one son (Al-derman Robert Moodie, of North Syd-ney), two daughters (Mrs Captain William Cargill and Mrs F.G. Mon ro), nine grandchildren, and one great. Grandchild. _On December 16, 1898, Captain and Mrs Moodie celebrated their diamond wedding. Deceased had enjoyed perfect health through-out a long and useful life, being laid up on but one occasion, some 19 years ago, when he received a paralytic stroke. The immediate cause of death was senile decay. [Deceased was the father of Mrs P. G. Monro, wife of the manager of the Commercial Bank, of this town ]

     Janet Johnston was born in 1867 at Dunedin, Otago, New ZealandG.1 I have yet to find absolute proof that Hugh and Grace were her mother and father. It may be resonable to assume this but only due to the fact that she was burried along side them in Dunedin's Southern Cemetery.
However I cannot find her birth recorded in NZ.
