Biography contributed by Katherine Blakeley

Annie Florence Julia Aburn was born in 1873 in Ampthill, Bedfordshire. She was the daughter of Samuel Aburn, a fancy shop keeper, and Elizabeth Ann Crimp. Her mother Elizabeth also signed the petition.

Annie’s family emigrated to Canterbury on the Mongol in 1874. Annie attended Green Island school and lived with her family in the Burnside area until about 1893 when they were living in Leith St.

In 1900 Annie married George Philp and they had a daughter. In October 1903 George died, in Napier hospital, of typhoid fever.

Annie then married, in 1904, William Ernest Voyce, a cycle mechanic. Together they had a daughter and the family lived in Wanganui where William died in 1947.

Annie died on 8 August 1962 and is buried in the Aramoho Cemetery in Wanganui.
