Does 'Mason' refer to James' occ or a name of Isabella? Also is the marriage in NZ?

Thanks Geoff.

I've gone through all the Isabella in Ryerson and seems no match.

Perhaps they died in NZ. I have no clue either way.

Oh!

Possibly why it only mentioned mother's house and not parent's house. Though no indication that father was dec.

I may have found an error in my tree.

Perhaps I have the wrong death for Elizabeth nee Ross. Ernest may have married twice.
