Biography contributed by Katherine Blakeley

Margaret White Lamb Falconer was born on 31 March 1867 in Glasgow, Scotland – the daughter of James Falconer, a joiner, and Mary McNaught McLean. (See 98 M Falconer)

Margaret emigrated to Otago with her family about 1885 and they settled in Dunedin.

Margaret did not marry and when she signed the suffrage petition she was living with her family in North Taieri Rd, Kirkland Hill, Roslyn.

Margaret died at her home on 8 August 1934, she is buried in the family grave in the Southern Cemetery.
