Biography contributed by Katherine Blakeley

Nano O’Connor was born about 1851. She married John Allan/Allen, a labourer, in New Zealand in 1878.

They do not appear to have had any children and when Nano signed the suffrage petition they were living in Athol Place, Dunedin.

John died in 1917, he is buried in the Southern Cemetery.

Nano died at the Little Sisters of the Poor home in Dunedin, she is buried in the Andersons Bay Cemetery.
