Sophia Franks was the daughter-in-law of Mrs F. W. A. Franks of Leithfield, who also signed the petition. She was (I think) my great-great-great aunt. She was born Sophia Jane Neilson and married Alfred Ernest Franks in Christchurch in 1888. The couple then lived in Leithfield and had five children.
