  • Notes 


    • Mary was the oldest of the Howell children, and after her mother died young, she helped her father raise her four brothers.In 1887 Mary married Henry Hurley at the home of Mrs Cook in Waiwera. They had six children between 1889 and 1899 but Mary's life was never to be an easy one. Henry died in 1905 aged 46, and worse was to follow - Mary lost two children in World War I, and two to the 1918 influenza epidemic. Mary farmed at Orewa Falls and in later years, at Taiotea, Browns Bay with her brother James. After James died in 1935, the farm was managed by her daughter Mildred and Mildred's husband Mervyn Huntly Wilson, while Mary continued to work in her vegetable garden. Mary died in 1942, and was buried in the Silverdale Anglican cemetery.
