The area to the west of the red line is the area we defined as Franklin for this book.


The project to write this collection of stories started when the Franklin Branch of the New Zealand
Society of Genealogists was approached by the Franklin Business & Professional Women who were
organising an event to mark the 125th anniversary of the right for women to vote. They asked if we
could find any descendants of the women who signed the 1893 petition. As it happened, if there was
ever a petition from the Franklin area it did not survive.

Legislation was passed on 19 September 1893 and the first election that women could vote in was
held on 28 November 1893, a mere 10 weeks later. The branch decided to use this first roll to identify
those women of Franklin who had enrolled to vote and to write their stories.

In an area defined to include Pokeno, Bombay and Ramarama in the east, Tuakau, Pukekohe, Karaka,
Patumahoe and across to Waiuku, Karioitahi and the Awhitu Peninsula in the west, the names of all
the local women were extracted from the Franklin and Waipa electoral rolls, a total of more than nine
hundred women.

We advertised, networked and used known contacts to involve family members to write about their
ancestors. Branch members set about researching and writing about others. They were to be short
biographies, including a photo if possible, a headstone or newspaper clippings and limited to one page
for consistency. The stories have been written in good faith with the best information we were able
to gather from a variety of sources. They have highlighted the tough times that were endured – brave
women who lived in tents in the bush, women who lost their husbands tragically at a young age and
were left to raise many children alone. Children dying of a variety of illnesses that would now be
curable and the isolation from the families they left on the other side of the world. There were also
tales of strong communities, of good social times and of helpful and caring neighbours. We would like
to think that we have captured life as it was for our 1893 women.

‘Women of Franklin on the 1893 electoral rolls’

The publication is in two volumes, A-I and J-Z, in alphabetical order by surname. The original roll
spellings have been used, please be aware of alternative spellings. Sources may not have been
entered in full due the nature of family contributions and in some cases available space.

1896 Douglas St, Auckland with Annie (she was buried as Mary Ann in 1906).

2. Died September 1915 – wife of John, farmer Taupaki who died 28 September 1907 age 70.
She was Mary Ann NESBITT. Married 1876 in New Zealand. Both buried at Waikumete.
She is an interesting character – left her estate to a church in England that turned out to be
non-existent and the Court had to decide who to give it to and her sister Rachel SCOTT
contested the will claiming board from 1907 to 1913. The court agreed and gave her the
£200 she claimed – LOTS OF NEWSPAPER REPORTS.

3. Died 1 September 1915 - age 76 – no proof this is her but born 1839 is nearer George’s age.
– wife of George, settler, Taupiri who died 12 October 1889, age 62 (born 1827).
1880/81 Taupiri, labourer.
Left his property to his wife, with his son in law, Michael FARRELL, as executor. Their
daughter Harriett Frances married in 1887 and had a baby in 1888 – she died in Otorohanga
at childbirth and the baby died 5 days later at the home of Mary Ann and George in Taupiri.
There is an Intention to Marry on NZSG Kiwi Index and Frances attended Taupiri School from
April 1881 until September 1881 – left for home.
Seems no other children.

Electoral Roll: Franklin 1525 Surname: JAMES
Given names: Dorcas Ann Residence: Waiuku
Occupation: dressmaker Qualification: residential

Dorcas Ann JAMES was born on 28 April 1867, the first child of eight born to William John James and
Elizabeth Prudence WALTERS who lived at ‘Brookside Farm’, Waitangi (now 412 Bald Hill Road
Pukeoware) near Waiuku.

Dorcas appeared on the 1893 Electoral Roll as a
dressmaker and it would be a profession that would be
useful in a country district. Although most country women
will turn their hands to anything that “special occasion”
garment needs the professional and something extra.

In future years Dorcas was on ‘domestic duties’. It could
simply have been that with her mother aging and many of
her family still living at the farm, these duties were too
much for Elizabeth and Dorcas, as eldest daughter, took
over the responsibility of the home.

Dorcas remained unmarried, as did most of her sisters and
one brother. One brother, Joseph John Albert (known as
Albert, a saddler) married Ruby BARRIBALL, and one sister,
Selina Doney, married Robert PRITCHARD in Queensland,
Australia, late in life.

At the time of her death Dorcas was still living at Brookside
Farm, the family farm her parents developed, as were
Richard William Arthur, Alicia Jane, Sarah Louisa James and
Selina Doney Pritchard, her brother and sisters.

Dorcas passed away on 31 October 1949 at the age of 82.
She was buried on 1 November 1949 in Waiuku Cemetery
alongside many members of her family.

Australia from Cornwall, England with a baby girl. Elizabeth was born on 1 January 1840 and
christened at Mulgoa, New South Wales on 1 November that year.

In 1848 the family came to New Zealand on the brig “Louisa”.

William John JAMES, born Cornwall, England 1836, met and married Elizabeth on 26 October 1865.
A newspaper clipping to celebrate their golden wedding stated that they were married at East
Tamaki by Rev. J.S. RISWORTH who was assisted by the Rev. G. BUTTLE.

They had eight children – six girls and two boys:
1867-1949 Dorcas Ann
1869-1936 Mary Elizabeth Pawley/Pauley (known as Pollie)

1880-1933 Joseph John Albert – married Ruby Ethel BARRIBALL 1904 – they had four children,and
1882-1956 Clarice Augusta.

Early electoral rolls had William listed as having premises at which he resided in Waiuku East.
However, on the 1880-81 Electoral Roll he was on two lists – residence as before, but also 100 acres
Part Lot 65 Waiuku East. It is this block that became the family farm known as ‘Brookside Farm’.
Elizabeth and William developed the farm, and many used their grounds and tennis courts.

William passed away at ‘Brookside Farm’ 412 Bald Hill Road at the age of 81. His obituary states he
(and Elizabeth) had resided at Waiuku for nearly 60 years and were well-known and highly-respected
residents. Land on the main road had been donated to be used for community activities. The
current Pukeoware Hall is on that land now (2018). William had been a member of the Waiuku
Volunteers during the Maori war and saw active service on several occasions.

At the time of William’s death on 31 July 1916 his widow and seven of their eight children still
resided in Waiuku. Selina was living in Australia but in 1938 returned to New Zealand.
Elizabeth passed away on 1 September 1920 at the age of 80. Her death record states that the
“Waiuku district has lost a very old resident, and parent of a highly-respected family.”
Both William and Elizabeth were buried in the Presbyterian section of the Waiuku Cemetery.

The couple settled in Bombay, the district named after the ship many of the settlers had come on.
What a far cry this was from their previous lives for both Sarah Ann and John. No longer leading lives
connected closely with water-based occupations, Sarah Ann and John took up farming at Bombay.
The district had been surveyed into 10-acre sections and converting the bush to pasture was no easy

Given names: Eliza Residence: Pukekohe West
Occupation: domestic duties Qualification: residential

Elizabeth (Eliza) came to New Zealand on the Ganges with her first husband, George HALLIDAY and
their two children Andrew age 3 and Annie age 1. Sadly, just five days after the ship arrived in
Auckland on 14 February 1865, Andrew died. There were 54 children who died during the voyage
and Andrew probably died of the same causes, bronchitis and whooping cough.

Another son, James, was born in New Zealand in 1866 but once again Eliza was to experience the
pain of death when George died in 1868 at just 34, leaving her with two small children to care for.

Annie was seven, James just three when Eliza married James JOHNSTON (1828-1926) in 1871, a
widower with three small children, two sons, Charles and Thomas and a daughter, Jane. Five more
children were born – four sons, William, John, Arthur and Robert and one daughter, Eliza, making a
total of ten children.

James who had arrived as a young married man on the Ganges had taken up his 10 acre land grant in
Helvetia but the family had moved to a holding on Nelson Street about 1882. Life would have been
hard but times got even tougher when James filed for bankruptcy in December 1890.

Eliza would not get the opportunity to cast her vote,
as on 25 November 1893, just three days before the

Elizabeth HEWITT, daughter of James Hewitt and Mary AUSTIN, was born about 1848 in County
Armagh, Ireland.

She arrived in New Zealand c1866 and married Robert JOHNSTON on 5 January 1871 in the
Pukekohe area.

In 1890 Robert's qualification for the electoral roll was Pukekohe Lot 25 Section 2, 10 acres freehold.

Robert Johnston was born c1840 in Toureen, Annacarty, Tipperary, Eire. He died in Cambridge, 18
June 1920.

Robert arrived in New Zealand c1864 and had worked as a plate layer on the railways. He had also
helped to drain the swamplands where the present Pukekohe Race Course is. When he retired from
the railways he went farming in Harrisville and later Buckland and was instrumental in establishing
the Buckland Anglican Church.

Robert and Elizabeth had 10 children between 1871 and 1891: Mary Jane, Annie (married William
McGOWAN), Edward, Eda Eliza (married Frederick FINLEY), Robert (lived in Alberta Canada and died
in USA), William, Joseph Howard, John, Albert Edward and Lillian Gladys (married Alan FISHER).

In 1928 Elizabeth was living with her daughter Mary Jane Johnston at Thornton Rd, Cambridge.

Elizabeth died 3 December 1933 in Cambridge, where she had lived since c1920.

Occupation: household duties Qualification: residential

Elizabeth Anna (or Anne) BLACKBURN was born c1842 in Lambeg,
County Antrim, Northern Ireland, the daughter of John Blackburn.

On 3 June 1867 she married Robert JOHNSTON in Belfast.

They had a son, James Harvey born on 13 September 1868 and
sometime after that they left Ireland and came to New Zealand. Maybe they were the Robert
Johnston and family on the ship Percy that arrived in Auckland on 3 March 1869.

Another son, George Henry was born in 1871 in New Zealand. The family settled at Mauku, where in
early electoral rolls Robert was recorded as having 10 acres at Mauku but this advertisement selling
their property in 1892, describes 80 acres with a substantial home.

It seems that Elizabeth and Robert did eventually sell their farm and move, as when Elizabeth died
on 3 August 1902, it was at Mt Roskill. Robert died 19 June 1917 and they are both buried at Purewa

In 1892 an English immigrant, Miss Harriet JOHNSTON, arrived
in New Zealand.

She was to become a great benefactor to the district, her first
undertaking being the building of St Mary’s Church, Pokeno.

It is reported that the contract price to build it was £690,
which was defrayed by Miss Johnston and that price did not
include the fittings which are also her gift.

In the book, ‘St Mary on the Hill, Pokeno 1900 – 2000’, author
Dora Hessell writes – We have been unable to discover her
antecedents or her reason for settling in Pokeno. Her death certificate gives her mother’s maiden
name as ROEBUCK and shows that she was already sixty three years old when she came. She
brought with her to the Pokeno district Francis PYNE, probably a kinsman, who grew up in her
household, married and continued to live there, sharing her work for the church and becoming her

Continuing from the book – A Mr Thomas BATES was Miss Johnston’s friend and gardener back in
England. He and his wife Sarah and family sailed for New Zealand in 1890, their passage being paid
by Miss Johnston. In the new land he would again be gardener and take care of her house. Miss
Johnston lived in some style in a handsome two and a half- storied house. Ground floor for the
servants, first floor living and upper floor for bedrooms. “The Springs” with an extensive garden was
on a site near the church.

It was recorded in the minutes of the Standing Committee of 12
October 1899 that Miss Johnston would give £50 a year towards
the stipend – a generous benefactor indeed. She also gave a
beautiful stained glass window, installed in 1910.

Apart from church activities, Harriet also enjoyed her tennis and it
was known that binoculars were used to see if there was any
activity at the courts and if so, she was soon on her way. When
she wished to play tennis a flag flew from the upper story of her

Annie’s signature on probate records for William, 1950

Annie JOHNSTONE – actually JOHNSTON*, was born in New Zealand (probably Pukekohe) in 1872.
She was the daughter of Robert Johnston (1841-1920) and Elizabeth HEWITT (1849-1933) both long-
time residents of Pukekohe and Buckland. Annie was the second of ten children, 4 daughters and six
sons, so no doubt would have helped at home before her marriage to William McGOWAN in 1898.

Their only child Howard Gordon was born in Tuakau. It is probably safe to assume that William
McGowan was the blacksmith who was at Waiuku in 1896 but on the electoral roll in Tuakau as a
blacksmith in 1900, 1905 and 1911.

By 1914 Annie and William had moved to Papatoetoe and taken up farming. They were to spend the
rest of their days in this locality at their property they called Ashlynn.

Son Howard was a schoolteacher and later a Headmaster at several schools – in Kerepehi in 1950
and in Northland later.

William died on 29 May 1950 and Annie on 13 January 1953. They are buried side by side, with
separate headstones at the Papatoetoe cemetery.

Acheson John, Constance Mary and Esther Elizabeth who were also on the 1893 Franklin roll.

Other children were Hugh Kennedy, Edith Evening and Clarice Norah.

Annie had married Frederick in Melbourne, Australia in 1866 – quoted in many family trees but not
confirmed. Frederick Acheson Jones was born in Mauritius in 1838.

The first two children were born in Redfern, Sydney and they had come to New Zealand via Tonga
where son Hugh was born in 1878. Two children were born in New Zealand – Edith in 1879 and
Clarice in 1882 with the mother’s name being recorded as Hannah Pinfold Jones.

In 1905 Annie and Frederick were living at Edendale, Mt Roskill, Auckland and that is where she died

Constance Mary JONES was born in Redfern, Sydney,
Australia in 1869, the eldest child and daughter of
Frederick Jones and Hannah (Annie) Pinfold Jones,
who had married at St Kilda, Melbourne in 1866.
Constance’s brother Hugh was born in Tonga in 1878
and her next sibling was born in New Zealand in 1879,
so the family obviously moved about.
Although her father appeared on the 1893 electoral
roll as a farmer at Buckland, owning land there, his
usual occupation was given as gentleman.

Constance qualified as a nurse and this is her entry in the Register of Nurses in the NZ Gazette.

In her father’s will, dated 1 June 1911, when Constance had been in Woking, England, he wrote;

Constance nursed her father at their home in Sandringham Road, Auckland until his death 14
October 1930, aged 92. She died 15 November 1946, leaving a considerable estate, naming her
siblings or their partners and her 15 nieces and nephews as beneficiaries. She remained single and is
buried at Purewa cemetery with her parents.

Mary was born Mary Ann OVENS at McGillivray, Ontario, Canada on 2 March 1855. She was the
third child of at least ten born to Stewart Ovens and Mary CRUISE (10 children on the 1871 Canadian census,
see below), who were farmers of Irish descent.

On 17 March 1879 in Middlesex, Ontario, Mary married John JONES (1848-1941). John had been
born in Canada to Welsh parents and did not speak English until he went to school. They had three
children born in Canada – 1881 John Russel, 1882 Mary Edith Lloyd, 1884 Rubie Maud Martha Cruise

and one born in New Zealand 1895 Stewart Thomas.
Mary, John and the family came to New Zealand

They settled in Buckland where they farmed until
1905. They then farmed at Waiau Pa until 1911
when they decided to return to Canada. Unable to
settle and missing the New Zealand lifestyle, they
returned after a year and bought a house in Church
St, Penrose, where they lived until their deaths.

Mary died in 1932 and John in 1941 – they were
survived only by their two daughters as both sons
had died – John in 1908 and Stewart (spelt Stuart on
the memorial) was killed in action in 1918. They are

JONES but they married in 1855 in Australia, possibly at Bathurst at the

Susan was a bit of a renegade – she cut her hair short.

Her mother had appointed her to accompany her father John, to look after
him. Early married life was pretty primitive, and she related that her father
John Faulkner slept in the wagon and she and “Jones” – she always referred to
her husband in this vein – slept underneath. She apparently adopted this
method of differentiating between her father John, husband John, and son
John. They may have gone to Queensland to work in the cane fields.

Eldest daughter Margaret was born in 1856 in Australia probably at
Bundaberg. They must have returned to England between 1856-58 as Samuel was born in 1858 at
Doncaster where Margaret died of measles. They next moved to Cape of Good Hope where William
[1860] and Sarah [1863] were born.

The next move was on 18 August 1864 when the family left in the Hamburg barque “Steinwarder”
for New Zealand, arriving at Auckland on 14 October 1864. The family apparently received
assistance to emigrate. Son John was recorded as being born at Newton, Auckland in 1865 and
George at Waipipi in 1867 so this was when the connection to the Waipipi district started. They had
a small holding situated on Keogh Road between Craig Road and Creamery Road, Waipipi. Five more
children were born – Walter 1872, Matilda 1874, Mary 1874, Alfred 1876, and Henry 1879.

Early experiences at Waipipi were very severe also and relatives were told they had been forced to
dig up the seed potatoes for food at times.

Susan, along with John, is buried at the Waipipi Cemetery. She died on 28 September 1926.

four brothers.

On 23 December 1860, Ellen married Henry KAYES at the Crayford Parish Church, Kent, England.
Their first three children, all little girls died very young. Alice born 1861 died in 1863 and Clare born
1862 died 1863. Maybe this was one of the reasons the couple decided to make a new life in New
Zealand and boarded the Lancashire Witch on 10 February 1865. Tragedy was to strike again and
Grace, born in 1864, was one of the twelve children who died on the voyage.

What a dreadful trip it must have been for Ellen, as she was pregnant and had to endure 112 days at
sea in cramped conditions and deal with the death of young Grace.

Charles was born a few months after they arrived in Auckland and another eight children were to
follow, making a family of seven daughters and five sons in all. The youngest daughter, Ann Emily
died aged 23 months.

The family settled to farm at Pukekohe on Lots 119 and 121 and the children attended Pukekohe
School, including their granddaughter Bertha Ann, daughter of Susan, who was raised by her
grandparents. They remained on this property until their deaths.

Ellen died on 29 March 1906 and Henry on 23 September 1912. They are buried with their daughter
Maude in Pukekohe cemetery. They have a road named after them in the north area of Pukekohe.

Hannah was born c1827 and came to New Zealand with her husband, Thomas KELLY and their two
daughters Hannah (c1861) and Margaret (c1863) on board the “Alfred” on 16 November 1864
having left Cape Town on 27 September. There were 251 passengers and cargo on the ship.

It appears many wanted to escape the climate of Africa and when advertisements appeared for free
passage to five acres of free land in New Zealand, there was a stampede to register. Many did not
stay for long as they found the cash income from the small acreage could not support their families.
Those who settled for life were named the ‘Cape Pigeons’ in memory of their origin. Their
allotments were sited off Craig, Creamery and Parakau Roads, Waipipi.

Thomas and Hannah were granted Lot 54, Part Lot 184,
Waipipi. Their family increased by two boys at Waipipi;
Michael (1865-1932) and Adrian Thomas (1871-1914),
and they continued to work hard on their farm.
However, life in their later years was difficult as both
Thomas and Hannah suffered ill health. Hannah was
indeed an invalid for many years prior to her death.

Thomas died 2 October 1907 and Hannah died 16 June
1914. They are buried with their sons in Waipipi

Hannah (known as Annie), the eldest child, entered a
religious order in her youth, but she was allowed to
return to private life to care for her aging parents.
When they passed she continued to care for her
brothers and she became a district legend for her
willingness to help any household in time of sickness or
other needs as she had been taught nursing and
hospitality at the Convent. She is especially remembered for having fostered an orphan girl, Annie
MALONEY (Mrs Alex DRUMMOND), who was her companion for life. A Post Office was built,
originally in a movable building on skids attached to her house, and Annie served as Post Mistress for
24 years from 1908.

Annie died 25 December 1941, aged 82, and the property was passed to Dromgool relatives; her
sister Margaret married James DROMGOOL. Annie was buried at Waipipi Cemetery after a Service

Leah was not to marry but performed her domestic duties at Mauku and at Waiuku after the family

By 1900 the family were at Karangahake – at Crown Hill, Scotsman’s Gully, at the foot of the
Coromandel. John used his skills to build a two-storey house but when a storm blew off the roof
prompt action was needed. The family took in boarders, usually goldminers working nearby. John
was a keen flower and vegetable gardener and sold vegetables. The family were very involved in the
church and were well respected in the community.

Mary, who had suffered from rheumatic fever early in life, passed away on 5 June 1902 at
Karangahake, aged 56. She was buried at Te Aroha where William had also been buried. Leah took
over the responsibilities of running the boarding house which she was very proficient at. At the end
of the year Gertrude married Walter Smith.

In 1907 Leah was one of 100 plus residents of Karangahake who signed an unsuccessful petition to

have the goldmining township declared a borough. Records stated: “L. A. Kemp – DD.” John also

signed; his occupation was carpenter.

John died at Waihi Hospital, aged 76, on 28 July 1920 and was buried at Te Aroha with Mary and
William. Of the family, only Leah and her sister Gertrude were left.

Leah died suddenly on 16 April 1923, aged 56, at Paeroa where Gertrude was living. She was buried
in the Pukerimu Lawn Cemetery.
