3rd Baronet of Lochalsh

The current Chief of Clan Matheson is Sir Alexander Matheson, 8th Baronet of Lochalsh. Exactly 100 years ago his great-uncle, the 3rd Baronet of Lochalsh and also named Sir Alexander Matheson, lived in Wellington.

Among his pastimes was haranguing the city council about the poor state of the capital’s roads, and writing frequently in local papers about the council’s overspending and poor results. You can read about this unusual connection with New Zealand in this article on our website.
