Biographical information provided by Stefanie Lash for the He Tohu exhibition:

This is likely the signature of Harriett Auckland Bosworth, who has signed sheet 382 of the Women’s Suffrage Petition with her mother, Sarah Bosworth.

Harriett was a twin; she and her sister, Sarah Sydney (who seems to have signed sheet 18 of the petition), were the eldest children of Sarah and George John Bosworth. They also had four siblings. The family lived on Westminster St in Grey Lynn and then moved around the corner to Gundry St. Sarah married in 1900, and Harriett in 1903.
