Alexander Kingcome TURNER1

(1901 - 1993)
Alexander was born in Auckland on 18 November 1901, the son of Joseph Hurst Turner (d. 1913) and Gertrude Kingcome Reid (1870-1952).1,2,3

His distinguished legal career is summarised in the following extract from the NZ Dictionary of Biographies: -
"He was the son of Joseph Hurst Turner, a teacher, and his wife, Gertrude Kingcome Reid, the daughter of a leading Methodist minister. He attended Mount Eden School and Auckland Grammar School. When he was 11 his father died, leaving Alexander's mother and her four sons in a state of poverty.

In 1917 Turner won a university entrance scholarship and enrolled the following year at Auckland University College. He graduated BA (1921), MA with first-class honours in economics (1922), and LLB (1923). Meanwhile, he had become a legal clerk in an Auckland law firm, and there spent six years learning to behave 'as a lawyer and a gentleman', in the course of which, in 1923, he was admitted as a barrister and solicitor. On leaving in 1926 Turner practised for 10 years on his own, and then as a partner in what became Turner, Kensington and Haynes.

Turner's working commitments left him little time for social and other pursuits, but he enjoyed golf and music and achieved success as Auckland table tennis champion in 1926 and Auckland mixed doubles tennis champion in 1931.

While practising at the Auckland Bar, Turner was active in academic circles. He was president of the Auckland University College Students' Association (1928), president of the Auckland district Court of Convocation of the University of New Zealand (1933), and a member of the Auckland University College Council (1935--51). He represented the college as a governor of Massey Agricultural College from 1944 to 1953 and his interest in agricultural research led to a Carnegie Corporation travel grant in the United States in 1949.

In 1952 Turner was made Queen's counsel and on 29 June 1953 he was appointed judge of the Supreme Court of New Zealand. After serving on provincial courts he became senior Auckland judge. On 30 August 1962 he was elevated to the Court of Appeal, and the Turners moved to Wellington. From 1 February 1972 until his retirement 17 months later he was president of the court.

His statements were quoted with approval by the Privy Council, and a number of his judgements, notably The Queen v. Convery and Naniseni v. The Queen , were to be highly influential in New Zealand law. He was made a Knight Bachelor in 1963, a privy councillor in 1968 and KBE in 1973, and he was awarded an honorary LLD by the University of Auckland in 1963.

In December 1973 he was made editor in chief of the New Zealand Commentary on Halsbury's Laws of England , and he held this post for the next 19 years. He also served as a director of Butterworths and organised the writing of numerous New Zealand legal texts."4,5


He married Dorothea Frances MULGAN, daughter of Alan Edward MULGAN and Marguerita Blomfield PICKMERE, in New Zealand on 21 March 1934.6,1,7

Alexander died on 7 July 1993 in Auckland at age 91.8
