The bridal party at Mayfield, Doyleston.

The BDM record 1902 3202 appears to relate to this wedding, giving the bridegroom's name as George Gossett  and the bride's name as Mary Lochead Rennie.

Dr. Gosset was a son of the late Rev. I. H. Gosset, vicar of Northam, North Devon, England, a gentleman who introduced the game of golf into Devonshire. He was born in Devonshire, and educated first at Bishop's Hull, Taunton, where he was a fellow pupil of the late Sir W. Penn Symons, the hero of Talana Hill in South Africa. He was at Eton for six years, and in 1866 went to Cambridge, where he took his B.A. degree in 1870, and in 1876 his M.A. and M.B. degrees. For about seven years he practised at Abingdon, Berks; in 1883 he settled at Leeston, and two years later was appointed a Justice of the Peace. Dr. Gosset is an enthusiastic golfer. He was an original member of the Royal North Devon Golf Club (1864); and of the Royal Liverpool Golf Club (1869), winning that club's gold medal at Hoylake in 1871; and a member of the London Scottish Golf Club from 1872 to 1876. Since his arrival in New Zealand he has kept up his interest in the healthy and fascinating game, and won the New Zealand golf championship in 1895. Dr Gosset has been twice married; firstly, to Miss Charlewood, daughter of Admiral Charlewood, and, secondly, to Miss Rennie, daughter of Mr. John Rennie, a prominent settler in the district of Leeston.
