Notes on John Hollebon as related by his son Alfred Hollebon who lived at Anglesea Victoria, Australia, in December 1979 to his niece Olive Gazzard nee Graham.

Thomas and Susan Andrews sometime about 1873 nominated Abel Hollobon to migrate to New Zealand or work on the NZ Railways. He had very little education and did not like his biblical name so placed John in front of it so became John Abel known as John Hollobon on the ship "Charlotte Gladstone" during the trip to New Zealand. Fever broke out and they buried quite a number at sea. He had the fever but survived. His name appeared in some notice boards but was spelt the wrong way, it appeared as J A Hollebon, he never had it corrected and arrived in New Zealand as Hollebon. After a while he went over to Australia to work around Adelaide, Port Wakefield, Port Augustas, Kadena. He then returned to New Zealand as he wanted to marry Agnes Annie Andrews the daughter of Thomas and Susan his sponsors.
