Hibbert Newton


From on Sunday, 4 August 2013
Hi Elizabeth
I was very interested in your ‘Pioneer Families in Victoria’. My great grandmother, Barbara Araminta Martha Newton was the sister of Hibbert and John Vigors Newton.
In 1860 she married George Aickin in Co. Wicklow and in 1864 they came out to NZ when he was appointed Provincial Engineer for Canterbury, NZ. They had eight children, one of which was my grandmother, Meta Truman Barbara Aickin.
Many thanks, George Jury
