About Jane Laurie (Stark)
Mrs Laurie went out to the Cape with her daughter, Mary Wortherspoon Laurie, and her son, James (??) Laurie They arrived on 2nd August 1889, in Port Elizabeth, on the Pembroke Castle. She may have married an Alexander Angus afterwards, and lived in Pietermaritzburg, KZN. (Old Natal), then they moved to Durban.
Jane and John Laurie were married in Glasgow on 1/11/1878, in M.......... Street. There is no record of John Laurie having also traveled out to South Africa. He may have come out before his family, or passed away. It seems strange that they would have come out alone, unless it was to relatives or on an immigration scheme.
