Biography contributed by Katherine Blakeley

Tamar Hurrell was born in Essex, England in 1855 – the daughter of James Hurrell, a railway plate layer, and Rhoda King. (See 34 Mrs Hurrell)

She married William James Harley, a labourer, in 1874 and they had four children before they emigrated to Otago in 1882 on the Timaru.

They had a further nine children, one who died in infancy, and when Tamar signed the suffrage petition the family were living in Anderson Bay Rd, Dunedin and William was working as a carter.

In 1918 one of their sons was killed while fighting 'somewhere in France'.

William died in 1923 and Tamar died on 21 July 1928, they are buried together in the Andersons Bay Cemetery.
