The Royal Society commented, in their announcement, that 'innovative work has been a hallmark of Charlotte Macdonald's scholarship. Her 1990 book A Woman of Good Character used systematic data analysis in combination with more conventional archival interpretation to delineate the characteristics of a large migrant group. Over four thousand individuals were tracked through historical records in Britain and New Zealand. The book broke new methodological ground and opened up the history of a significant group of people while also presenting a path-breaking discussion of the centrality of gender in settler migration.'
