Charles Cottle and his wife Mary Diamond  left England for New Zealand on the 'Catherine Stewart Forbes' in 1841. Two sons, Charles and William, were also on the passenger list aged three and two. Charles (Snr) died shortly after his arrival in 1841. In the NZ Journal of 1848 'Deaths in the Colony Since Foundation of the Colony' it is recorded '1841 Wife of Charles Cottle aged 30 decline'. Mary's age at death differs to that  recorded on the passenger list to NZ.
