Extra information -

Charles Collins CAMPBELL (note from Sue MacKay) regarding extra info pages on eggsa. This is another settler where the numerous online trees seem to differ from the original images I have found, particularly in relation to his wives. It seems that Charles was granted an Act of Parliament to divorce his first wife, Harriet FRASER, so that he could marry his second wife Elizabeth LANE. Many people seem to have amalgamated the two wives and listed her as Elizabeth Fraser. His third wife, Mary Harriet ANDREWS, was the one who emigrated with him.
