Hugh McCutcheon (Peter) Spencer1

(1905 - 1981)
Father*Percy Spencer b. 1860, d. 1944
Mother*Lucy Charlotte Nutter b. 1866, d. 1948
Hugh McCutcheon (Peter) Spencer was born in New Zealand on 10 June 1905. He was named after his father's best friend McCutcheon, but known as Peter due to his mother referring to him as her 'little Peterkins.2,3'

He finished his primary school education at King's College Lower School in 1917 and went on to Auckland Grammar School until 1923.4

After studying at the University of Auckland he practised as a public accountant (APANZ) in Queen Street and in 1945 established a branch in Otahuhu. An enthusiastic sportsman, he played club cricket, hockey and tennis, and is thought to have been a founding member of one of the Auckland alpine or tramping clubs. He was also on the committee of the Waitemata Motorcycle Club and secretary of the Auckland Chess Club. During the Second World War he assisted with the accounts of the Patriotic Appeal, was involved with first aid (St John Ambulance) and served as district commander of the Home Guard's One Tree Hill Unit.

In 1945 Wairoa solicitor and bryologist George Osborne King SAINSBURY (1880–1957) described a new moss that he had collected at Waihohonu on the southern slopes of Ruapehu on 24 February 1942. He named it Dicranoweisia spenceri, the species "after my friend Mr H M Spencer, a companion on many collecting expeditions". In a 2019 taxonomic revision it was transferred to the genus Kiaeria, but the epithet spenceri was retained.4

He married Joyce Connett in New Zealand in 1948.5

Hugh died on 5 July 1981 in Remuera, Auckland, at age 76.2,6,7 He was cremated at the Purewa Cemetery on 8 July 1981.7

John Stockdale Spencer1

(1863 - 1936)
Father*Thomas Spencer1 b. 1828, d. 1894
Mother*Elizabeth Berridge1 b. 1826, d. 1890
John Stockdale SPENCER (c1863-??))
John Stockdale Spencer was born at Vane Cottage in Otahuhu, Auckland, on 10 May 1863.1,2

He arrived in San Francisco in April 1883 on the SS Sudburn from Sydney (according to his 1923 attempt at Naturalisation). In both the 1923 Intent document and his wife's 1936 Petition his birth year is given (incorrectly) as 1856.3

He married Martha Caroline Marshall in Denver, Colorado, on 9 September 1893.4

He was listed in the 1900 US census as head of the family in Precint 39, Teller, Colorado, with his wife Martha; they were living in their own (owned) home and the household included their children Clyde (6) and Clarence (11 mths), although they had had a total of three children. He was working as a machinist and claimed to have been born in 1860 - this is the first indication of his wandering birth year. He also claimed to have entered the US in 1885 and be Naturalised, which was not true.5

John was divorced from Martha Caroline Marshall at Teller, Colorado, on 13 December 1906.6

John's second marriage was to Margaret Jennie Harrison on 18 December 1912 at 1628 East 6th St in Portland, Oregon. He gave his age as 56, although he was only 49 at the time.7

He was listed in the 1920 US census as head of the family in Metzger, Washington, Oregon, with his wife Margaret; they were living in their own (mortgaged) house with their children Ethel (5), Margaret (3 and 2 mths) and Howard (1 and 6 mths). He was working as a machinist in the auto industry and now claimed to have been born in 1857.8

He was listed in the 1930 US census as head of the family at Greenburg Rd in Metzger, Washington, Oregon, with his wife Margaret; the household included their children Ethel (15), Margaret (13), Howard (11), Jesse (10) and George (3). They were living in their own home, valued at $5000 but without a radio. John was still working as a machinist despite his claimed age (73) and now gave his arrival in the US as 1898(!) although he was at least correctly identified as not naturalised.9 He was naturalised on 21 May 1936 in Portland, Oregon. He had lodged an Intent in 1923, but it would have expired in 1930, so we presume Naturaiisation finally ocurred as a result of his wife's petition.10

John died on 8 September 1936 at Multnomah Hospital in Portland, Multnomah County, Oregon, at age 73 of entero-colitis and heart disease.11 He was buried on 12 September 1936 at the Crescent Grove Cemetery in Portland.11
