In August 1840
Ewen and his family emigrated to New Zealand with all the children except John on the Blenheim which brought out 197 people under the leadership of Laird Donald McDonald.
This gentleman was a representative of the New Zealand Company and a large landholder in the colony and nearly the whole of the body of emmigrants were composed of his own and neighbouring clans, from near Fort William, Invernessshire.

According to her age given when the family emigrated Mary would have been only 17 when they married so was probable still a home, however Ewen's age was thought to be actually 57 rather than the 50 recorded so Mary's age may also have been reduced. but given the aged of her youngest child she was unlikely to be very much older.

Sarah Cameron   married on 29 aug 1851 to
Duncan Campbell  a Master Mariner from Grandtuly Scotland
 their eldest daughter Margret married John Glass from kinross on 14 mar 1871
  in the Wesleyan Church Lawrence Otago NZ
