Glasgow, 5th Oct. 1839
J.Clark, Printer, Argus Office.
Hangs in St. Andrews Church, Wellington.

Wanganui Chronicle, 28 September 1874, Page 2
The late Mr Strang The 'New Zealand Times,' in recording the death of Mr R.R. Strang, says he was at one time a solicitor in Glasgow, and arrived in Wellington in the Bengal Merchant early in 1840. After practising his profession for a brief period, on a Government being formed in the Colony, he entered its service as Clerk to the Police Court, and afterwards became Registrar of the Supreme Court. Some years ago he retired on a well-earned pension. Mr Strang's daughter became the wife of Sir Donald McLean, and long ago preceded her father to the grave. Mr Strang was one of the trustees of St. Andrew's Church, and was long one of the office-bearers of that congregation. He had attained the age of 79, and had long been in indifferent health.

"It was a time of great unemployment in England. James Edward Fitzgerald, Canterbury's first superintendent, addressed some of the 800 unemployed residents of Deal, most of them fishermen, urging them to emigrate to Canterbury where there was a great need for steady, industrious men. The six who eventually found themselves in Timaru reached Lyttelton on the ship Mystery early in 1859 and a report stated that Le Cren offered these men the use of his boats at a moderate rental, assisted them and their families on the journey south and offered to sell them land for occupation. They began work in May 1859 under Strongwork Morrison who was beach master and coxwain.  The men engaged were John Wilds, William Corey, Boubius, Clayson, Roberts and Bowles. Clayson was drowned soon after his arrival and was replaced by Phillip Foster, also from Deal. Reference: Page 149 Oliver A. Gillespie's book South Canterbury A Record of Settlement.
