Biography
YULE family:
Alexander Yule, the son of Robert Yule, brought his family to NZ from Hamilton, Scotland on the Bengal Merchant. A son was born at Petone one month after arrival and their daughter Mary was drowned in a flood in the Hutt River soon after. The family first settled at Lower Hutt where another daughter, Elizabeth, was born and they were to have seven other children. They moved to the Wairarapa, and were farming at Sunnyside East Taratahi, when their daughter Elizabeth married Thomas George, the son of Thomas George who came out to NZ on the Martha Ridgeway and lived in the Wairarapa. The wedding took place on December 7th, 1866. Alexander Yule was a foundation member of the Knox Church in Masterton (now St Luke''s Union Church). He died on 25 April 1890, aged 84 years and is buried in the Masterton Early Settler''s Cemetery with his wife Elizabeth who died on 3 June 1903, aged 92 years.
