Hogan Family

About this object

A family photograph of the descendants of Charles Hogan b circa 1825 d 1886 and Elizabeth Priscilla Hogan nee Rawlings b 1831 d 1911.

This photograph was taken during a picnic event on Hogan's farm, Black Swamp Rd, Mangawai, late December 1902.
This property later became the Foote family property.

There is an in-depth description of these picnics in Papers Past, New Zealand Herald, Volume XXVI, Issue 9259, 12 January 1889.

This Papers Past article describes the Stewart family and Mrs Sarah of Hakaru inviting family and friends to attend a picnic at Hogan's farm on Black Swamp Road, Mangawai. They assembled at The Cornish Arms Hotel at Hakaru, and made their way to Mangawai accompanied by musicians. After the picnic they went to Mr W Sarah's store and danced the New Year in.

The photo, "Hogan Family", was one of several taken at the event in late December 1902, by Stephen Tracy, Auckland Weekly News photographer.
See Auckland Weekly News, January 22 1903, page 14 for one of the other group photos taken.

Charles Hogan and Elizabeth Priscilla Hogan nee Rawlings were early settlers of Mangawai and had an early grant of 86 acres on Lot 90 in 1859.
