Biographical information

Biographical information

Contribute ›
    • Percy Hebden was the son of Mrs. E. Hebden, of 162 Symonds St., Onehunga, Auckland, New Zealand. AWMM
    • Percy Hebden was the son of Robert Gascoyne and Elizabeth Lousia Hebden, born in Wellington on 3 July 1889. His date of birth was obtained from his military record, it was not recorded on the Government Births website, nor was any other siblings. So it is unknown if Percy had any brothers or sisters.
      In 1896 his father Robert was working as an accountant, of Kent Terrace, Wellington. However by 1905, the family were living on the gumfields at Waihopo in the Far North. Robert had given up his work as an accountant, and was working as a gum digger. In hard times and during the depression men from all manner of occupations, professionals, to labourers turned to gum digging.
