Extracts from a book about the Hall family. “In the wake of the Steadfast”

“Anthony Hall (born 1842, died 13th May 1916) married in 1873 Ellen-Martha Harris (born 27th January 1854, died 13th August 1938) and they had ten children. The whole family emigrated by ship to New Zealand. The youngest child was Charlotte who married Ernest-Cecil Tregenza.”
“Charlotte started work age 15 and worked for eight years as a housemaid at Kakanui, then Wellington then Timaru. Ernest (Cecil-Ernest) Tregenza grew vegetables on the section next door to where Charlotte worked in Timaru. They were married at Matheson’s House, Ravensbourne, Dunedin 9th September 1911 and settled in Timaru. At age 19 in 1904 Ernest had one Clydesdale horse and a dray which he used to cart shingle from the sea near Lagoon and Smithfield Freezing Works. When the son, George, took over the business they had a drag-line to take shingle from the sea near the wharf in Caroline Bay. Ernest used to mow hay with a two horse team and a mower. He also mowed the grounds at Waimataitai School. He once kept 31 draught horses but in the early 1950s he gradually mechanised with Bedford trucks. He still had a seven horse dray. He kept the retired horses up until he died. When Charlotte retired she took up bowls and played at Ashley Bowling Club and soon represented Timaru in the New Zealand Championships. At age 70 Charlotte started to play the accordion. Later she went blind and lived in the home for the blind in Christchurch where she died 21st August 1965. She was buried in Timaru.”
