Except for holidays in Kent, Hannah Chiffince Taylor had never been out of the sound of the Bow Bells, so she felt that to travel to New Zealand in the far-away Southern Hemisphere would be a wonderful adventure. She was born in 1836 in Maidstone in Kent, where her parents had their holiday home. They were well-to-do people who both had independent means.
Her father, William Taylor, was an artist with a studio in High street in London, and the family lived in Nottingham Street, at that time one of the most elegant districts in London. So Hannah, her twin brother and the rest of her family all had a good education...
