With reference to the NZ BDM site, searching births for a "Noel Jamieson"
with a birth date of the 25 Dec 1905 has listed one "Samuel Thomas Noel
JAMIESON". Parents listed are May and William Graham JAMIESON.

A "Samuel Noel JAMIESON" is listed in the Deaths for the date of the 18 Jan
1906, aged 24 days.

Looks like a sad story here.

Hi all,

I'm helping my sister in law, solve the mystery of an old locket.

Her sister Noel, found it 35 years ago when they bought their farm,
'Matareka' in the Kaituna Valley, while they were cleaning up rubbish in the
paddock for a bonfire.
She looked down and found the locket in the dirt.
It has the initials MJ on one side and on the other it has NOEL and under
that the date 25/12/05, and under that 18/1/06.

We have often wondered what the dates signified. The Jamieson family first
established the farm so it is feasible the locket belonged to a wife or
daughter because of the initials.
If anyone has any info that could shed light on the puzzle, we would be very

Many thanks,
