Memorial / Obituary / Personal History
William Francis Hammond, J.P. was born in London, England. He immigrated firstly to Australia and then to New Zealand with this first wife, Rebecca Anne Bedford. After Rebecca's death on 24 September 1877 in Ponsonby, Auckland, W.F. Hammond bought his children to live on the North Shore of Auckland. He met the daughter of Mary Forgham, formerly Alston, nee Havenhand, at the Forgham's property in Greenhithe. William married Annabella Findlay Alston (also buried at Pompeliar) on 17 November 1879. The couple had one son and five daughers. William was an architect and designed and built the home known as Highbury, which is now used to name the area of land in which the family once lived. William died in an accident at one of his properties at Orua, on the southern shores of Auckland.
