Abstract

Only one of Hogg’s children, his fourth (legitimate) child, Harriet (1827-84), had issue. After suffering financially in the Bank of Scotland collapse, Harriet, her husband Robert Gilkison (1820-79), and their nine children emigrated to Dunedin in 1879. In 1911, after the death of Hogg’s youngest daughter, Mary Gray Garden (b. 1831), Hogg’s possessions were shipped to Dunedin to the remaining Gilkison family members. This book contains the bookplate that is pasted in the Hogg volumes that are now housed in Special Collections. Interestingly, you can see Frederick Marryat (1792-1848) has personalised this copy of his book, Newton Forster, to James Hogg, the Ettrick Shepherd.
