I am searching for any information on Elizabeth Michieson, born 23 January 1851 at Newcastle, Northumberland, England.
Elizabeth died 18 June 1944 in Gisborne, New Zealand.
Elizabeth married Duncan McMillan, born abt. 1848 at Bellochantuy, Argyllshire, Scotland.
Duncan died 21 February 1928 in Gisborne, New Zealand
Elizabeth travelled to New Zealand prior to 1877 and before she became 26 years of age.
Any information, much appreciated
I think it might be Durham, not Northumberland, that you want to root around in. Here's Elizabeth and her family in the 1861 census:

Esther Micheison abt 1852 Whickham, Durham, England Daughter
Dorothy J Micheison abt 1857 Tanfield, Durham, England Daughter

Others on the same street include shoe makers, a tailor and a couple of "husb" men. Hope this helps.
