Hello to Nick & Ann, I am John Guthrie, grandson of the John Guthrie which you are talking about. My grandfather was born in 1873 in Cardiff, Wales and he married my grandmother, Glady's twigg in 1940 when he was 67. He'd previously been married to Emily Shaw and had 5 other Children including David Fairweather Guthrie. Amazingly, my father was then born in 1941 to John & Gladys and is still alive aged 71 and in very good health living in Nottingham, England. If you want to get in contact, I'll give you a link to my Ancestry.com family tree where you will see lots of photo's and information. We have no idea why his first wife Emily went to Australia with the Children in 1927. Can I assume that your mother is Karen Guthrie?Anyway, I really would be very interested to hear from you both. Regards, John Guthrie.
