    Joan's Notes Early in 1864 George Petchell sold his two Mataubank (Inch Clutha, Otago) to Thomas McDonald, a widower whose wife had died a few years prior to his leaving Scotland, when some of their children were still very small. He arrived in Otago in 1863, bringing with him four daughters, and leaving with friends at Home his three youngest children - George, Thomas and Rebecca. In 1868, by which time he had a home ready for them the three young people came out in the "Hellenslea" to join their father and their older sisters. Of a persevering character, Thomas in a few short years had not only reached a position of ease and comfort, but had also made a name for himself because of his knowledge of stock and his efficient farming methods as well as his generosity. Just as his sons had grown to manhood howeve, and he was beginning to feel that he could relax a little and enjoy an easier middle age, he contracted pneumonia and died in October 1875 at the age of 53.  [1
