Mrs Catherine Carter, widow of the late Mr. Thomas Carter, third Superintendent of Marlborough, was born in Nelson, and is the eldest daughter of the late Mr. G. W. page 363 Schroder, a prominent settler. She was educated at her native place, and continued to live with her parents until 1866, when she married Mr. Carter, and left Nelson to reside in Marlborough. For many years Mr. and Mrs Carter had their home at Hillersden station in the Wairau Valley, where an extensive plantation surrounded the homestead. More recently, they took up their residence at Burleigh, close to Blenheim, and there Mrs Carter has continued to live since the death of her husband.
