I would love to contact the person who posted this bio. Mary and James Lamb were my great grandparents, so Georgina was my great aunt. You may like to see the bios which I've posted for Mary and Lucy Lamb who both also signed the petition.

Georgina Jamieson (nee Lamb, c.1857 - 5 April 1928) is the daughter of undertaker, James Lamb, and Mary Lamb (nee Goddard). She married businessman John Jamieson in Christchurch on 21 November 1876 - James is the son of carpenter/undertaker William Jamieson and Elizabeth Jamieson (nee Waddell) who arrived in Auckland from Scotland on the ship Jane Gifford in 1842. Georgina and John had three sons and a daughter - Herbert, Ernest, Arthur and Violet. John is elected to Linwood Borough Council in 1887. They move to Auckland in 1888 when John (and his brother James, later to become an undertaker and Auckland councillor) take over a bootmaking firm. The firm is destroyed in a fire and John becomes Manager of McArthur's Boot Factory. After a falling out with the owner, they move back to Christchurch and John manages R Faulkner & Son. John is elected to the Linwood Borough Council again in 1895 and later to the Education Board and establishes own business. John unsuccessfully runs for government in the Avon seat in 1908. Georgina is noted in the newspaper as holidaying in Sumner with daughter and family in 1919, and again with John and daughter's family in 1920. John died in 1926 and Georgina in 1928. (Georgina is my gt gt grandfather Robert Jamieson's sister-in-law.)
