* see also Bathurst Family in New Zealand

* HELP is welcome in verifying these (or adding other) children. There were 2 William George Dean who married a Harriet around the same time. 'Our' William George Dean & Harriet Alding married in 1877. The 'other' William George Dean & Harried Chitty married in 1891 (& lived in Christchurch), so that BDM lists a total of 18 children for William & Harriet from 1878-1903. Their second name of George is only sometimes listed for either of them.
A process of elimination has paired 5 children to the Christchurch couple

William was raised by his paternal grandmother Priscilla Wakefield (nee Bell, a noted author, Quaker and philanthropist) and his elder sister Catherine, who found him a difficult child.


As William grew older he came very much under the influence of his older brother, Edward Gibbon Wakefield, who was not always a good influence on his life. In 1825 he became formally betrothed to Emily Sidney but, before they could be married, Wakefield became involved with his brother in the abduction of a wealthy heiress Ellen Turner - both brothers were arrested.
- Emily Sidney was a daughter of Sir John Shelley Sidney (1771-1849) Baronet of Penshurst Place, Kent

Then while out on bail Wakefield absconded to Paris apparently to meet up with Emily who by now was three months pregnant.
He returned to England when the baby was born and was promptly arrested and held in Lancaster Castle until his trial.
He was subsequently sentenced to three years in jail.
During this time his 'wife' died leaving him with a six-month-old daughter Emily Charlotte

Upon his release from jail William Wakefield spent some time with his daughter at his sister Catherine's.
- His daughter Emily married Edward William Stafford Esq, eldest son of Berkeley Buckingham Stafford of Mayne, county Louth on 24th September 1846 in Wellington
- there were no children
- Edward Stafford was a Runholder, provincial superintendent, premier, sportsman
- Edward was also Prime Minister of New Zealand on three occasions in the mid 19th century. His total time in office is the fifth longest of any New Zealand Premier or Prime Minister, and the longest of any leader without a political party
- Emily Wakefield died aged 29 in 1857
- Edward married again in 1859 to Mary Bartley and had 6 children - 3 sons, 3 daughters
- Mary died in 1899
- Edward died on 14th February 1901 aged 81 in London

In 1832 William travelled to Portugal and enlisted as a mercenary soldier in the service of Dom Pedro, the Emperor of Brazil.
Although he had no military experience whatsoever he was apparently able to enlist as a Captain.
He survived the siege of Porto (also known as Oporto in English} and the subsequent campaigning but he gained little from it except experience and a handful of medals.

After the Portuguese Campaign he returned briefly to England and enlisted in the British Auxiliary Legion fighting for the infant Queen Isabella II of Spain in the First Carlist War.
He emerged from the campaign as a major, re-enlisted and was promoted to Colonel.
He was one of the few officers to survive the campaigns of the following years; he stayed until the Legion was disbanded in 1837 and returned to England the following year.

In 1839 the New Zealand Company originated in London with the aim of promoting the "systematic" colonisation of New Zealand.
The Company intended to follow the colonising principles of Edward Gibbon Wakefield, who envisaged the creation of a new-model English society in the southern hemisphere.
Wakefield's emigration system professed higher and more noble aims than mere financial profit.

Edward set sail for New Zealand as the chief representative of the New Zealand Company on the Tory that left Plymouth on 12th May 1839, arriving in Port Nicholson (now Wellington) on 20th September 1839
The Tory had a total of 35 people on board, manned with a picked crew, and in the forecastle there was a Maori interpreter, Ngatai who
had lived in England with Edward Gibbon Wakefield and family for two years
The trials of a colonist

This is the only known sketch of William made in 1826 when he and his brother were convicted of the kidnapping of the 16 year-old heiress Ellen Turner.

Colonel Wakefield held two difficult, and to a certain extent, conflicting roles in the new settlement.

There are many articles to read on the life in New Zealand of Lieutenant Colonel William Hayward Wakefield at NZETC

His brother Edward Gibbon Wakefield had instruted him to buy as much land as possible from the Māori before New Zealand became annexed
- the First European arrivals

Almost immediately after his death on 19th September 1848 his friends began raising money to fund a memorial.
It was finally restored and officially celebrated on the 7th of October 2006 William Wakefield Memorial at the Basin Reserve, Wellington
