Elizabeth Hampson1

(c 1860 - 1861)
Father*William Hampson1 b. c 1833, d. 1877
Mother*Margaret Spencer1 b. 1836, d. 1925
Elizabeth Hampson was born in Preston, Lancashire, circa September 1860. This birthdate is based on her age (7 mths) in the 1861 census.1,2
The siblings William and Elizabeth were listed in the 1861 census at L & P.S. Rd in Longton, Lancashire, with their parents, William Hampson and Margaret Spencer.1

Elizabeth's death was registered between April 1861 and June 1861 in West Derby, Lancashire, (she does not appear in the family's 1871 census entry). It is probable she is the 8mth old infant buried in Toxteth Park Cemetery on 29 May 1861.3,4

Margaret Emma (Daisy) Hampson

(1884 - 1976)
Father*William Spencer Hampson b. 1859, d. 1920
Mother*Emma Louisa Heywood b. 1857, d. 1935
Margaret Emma (Daisy) Hampson was born in North Shore, Auckland, on 8 January 1884.1,2
The siblings Margaret, Ethel, Martin and Lillian were listed in the 1891 census in Victoria, James Bay Ward, British Columbia, with their parents, William Spencer Hampson and Emma Louisa Heywood.3

Her paternal grandmother Margaret Spencer had become an evangelist of some fame, and after touring in Australia and New Zealand had gone to California and re-married, while continuing her calling. She had prospered sufficiently to sponsor Daisy on a trip to California, where she arrived in 1911 on the Aorangi.

Daisy also claimed (as did all the HAMPSONs) to be descended from King Edward III - this unlikely assertion has since been proven to be true (for the proof see the page 'A Royal Connection?').4,5,6

Margaret married David Ernest Hansen CMG, son of Lars Hansen and Mary Ann Hastie, on 30 August 1916 in Christchurch, Canterbury.7,8,9

Margaret, as the step-mother of the bride, attended Ivall Moira (Mollie) Hansen and Morris Morell Macdonald's wedding at St Marks Church in Opawa, Christchurch, Canterbury, on 20 October 1934.10,11
Wedding of Morris MACDONALD and Ivall (Mollie) HANSEN 22 Oct 1934, Christchurch


She was widowed at age 88 on the death of her husband David on 30 December 1972.12,13,14,15

Margaret died on 4 October 1976 in Christchurch, Canterbury, at age 92.16,13 She was buried at the St Paul's Churchyard in Papanui.13
