Alexander Francis McKenzie son of Neil McKenzie

Alexander Francis McKenzie b. 1848  d. 1906  London – partner to Charlotte Geary b. 1863 d. 1888 –  married in 1893 in Sydney to Mary Jane Barrow b. 1863 Chelsea England.

It appears that Alexander was living in New Zealand with his first wife, Charlotte Geary, and after her death he moved to Sydney, NSW where he subsequently married his second wife, Mary Jane Barrow. By 1904 he had moved his family to England, perhaps closer to his wife’s family – and the two living children of his first marriage, Charles Kenneth and Harry accompanied them. Some of Alexander and Mary Jane’s children remained in England whilst others moved to Australia.
