About this object
Letter; written by Alice Atkinson to William and Emily Richmond, dated January 8 1857 from Frindsbury, Kent. The letter begins with Christmas and New Year wishes.

William and Emily Richmond (nee Atkinson) were among the last of the intertwined Richmond, Hursthouse and Atkinson families to arrive and settle in Taranaki. Emily, of Frindsbury, Kent, married William Richmond on the 15th September 1852 and the two departed for New Zealand, on board the Sir Edward Paget, later that year. Joining them on the journey were William’s mother Maria (Lely) Richmond; his sister, Jane Maria Richmond; Harry and Arthur Atkinson (Emily’s brothers); and two of William’s cousins, Charles and Calvert Wilson.
