NZ ELECTORAL ROLLS 1899 NTH ISLAND, AUCKLAND CITY.

The same address as his parents. 1900 Eden, Auckland Alfred duncan Glass, Devonport, Clerk Margaret Glass, Devonport, home duties William campbell Glass, Devonport, Storekeeper It appears Alfred met Evelyn in the summer of 1900 Vincent Street is only a couple of streets away from Karagahape Rd. where Evelyn lived. However given Alfred was much taken with theatricals, They may have met in the theater, Evelyn at some point was on tour with C.J. William Gilbert & Sulivan productions.

According to a statment in 1925 after leaving Evelyn circa 1902 Alfred lived in Hastings under the name Alfred duncan Campbell ( mothers maiden name).
However my father remembered an Uncle Alfred visiting in his early youth in Devonport, so possibly Alfred didnt move to Hasting straight away.
possible voters - although no positive connection
there are only a couple of Alfred duncan Campbell listed.
