Thanks, Minnehaha

I don't recall seeing it,but it looks pretty accurate.

Lewis and Eliza had 5 other children ,not 4.

Mary Ann came between Sarah and Louisa-1862

Lewis Alexander-1873

Alfred George Mason-1875

Eliza-1876

Edith-1878

Elizabeth's maiden name was Wilmshurst and I'm not sure how many Spicer children came to NZ.
 I believe one or two of her Wilmshurst siblings travelled with them as well.

Will have to check the passenger list - it was the William Bentinck they sailed on.

Thank you so much, Spades.

Lewis can't be Sarah Jane's father then.

Hello Barbara,

Here is the probated will of Lewis Alexander HOOK.

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QS7-L9KZ-QVGC?cc=1865481

His will was executed in 1909. Siblings mentioned:

William Henry, Alfred George Mason, Louisa Twyneham (spelling?), Maria Elizabeth, Eliza Maud, Edith Evangeline Jessie.

Sarah Jane died in 1924 but she is NOT mentioned in the will of Lewis Alexander...........Significant?

Thanks Minnehaha

That's interesting.

I had seen Lewis Alexander's probate briefly when I was looking for the will of Lewis Snr.
But I hadn't noticed that Sarah Jane was left out.Knowing what I know now, that could well be significant.
I do recall finding some "In Memoriam" notices for Lewis Alexander and I don't think Sarah Jane was mentioned in those either - will have to go and investigate.

I had assumed that neither Sarah Jane or her siblings would have been aware that Lewis wasn't her father ...................maybe not :o

Hi Barbara,

It might be worthwhile to obtain the 1920 death printout for Lewis HOOK. Although not named, this should show the ages of his living issue. Of course even if included, it would not confirm that Sarah Jane was his daughter, however if she was NOT included...........  ???
