Sarah Witts-Hewinson signed the suffrage petition as "S W Hewinson" but her surname is actually hyphenated as shown. She is my paternal grandmother's mother and lived in Glandovey Road, Fendalton, Christchurch at the time. I note Kate Sheppard (K W Sheppard) of Riccarton also signed the same page as my grandmother so wonder if they were acquaintances. Kate Sheppard is depicted on our current $10 note.
