NZ Electoral Roll and Rudolph’s birth record give Dalgarno as the middle name. It is reasonable to assume that Isabella’s parents were very impressed with Isabella Dalgarno, a fiery Scot who preached against alcohol and who settled in Melbourne in 1852. Isabella’s husband was a sea captain who was involved with the Johnstons’ Mission to Seamen.
