Description From Owner:
- Pop. 116. In Maryborough T., Wellington C. on the Mallett R and C. Rds. 7 & 10, 11 km. SE of Palmerston.
- The community was first called Maryborough, but when the post office opened in 1856 the place was renamed after Rothesay on Scotland's Isle of Bute. The spelling error has never been corrected.
