Biography contributed by Katherine Blakeley.

Helenor Hale was born in 1858 in Staffordshire, England – the daughter of James Hale, an iron polisher, and Lucy Bartlett. (See 83 Mrs Lucy Hale)

She emigrated to Otago with her family in 1872 on the “Hydaspes” and they settled in Dunedin.

Helenor married Thomas Millington, an ironmoulder, in 1889 and they had three daughters, one who died in infancy.

When she signed the suffrage petition the family were living in Dundas Street.

Thomas died in 1920 and Helenor died in Dunedin on 3 November 1942 – they are both buried in the Andersons Bay Cemetery.
