NOTE
Doctor Stephen Lunn Muller 1st married Mary Benedicta Deanne Robinson (1815-1849) and had 2 daughters. Mary died on board the Pekin enroute to NZ (on which Stephen was the ship's surgeon). Stephen next married Mary Anne Griffiths, née Wilson (1820-1901), who was also a passenger on the Pekin. She was to become New Zealand's first suffragist.
Mary Anne Wilson was born in London. Her father's name was James Norris, but he assumed the name Wilson when he married Mary's mother, surname was Croft. Mary married James Whitney Griffiths, a chemist, in London 16 Dec 1841 and they had two sons and a daughter. In Aug 1849 she and her two daughters left England, also on the Pekin. They arrived in Nelson in Jan 1850. Mary Griffiths was described on the ship's passenger list as a widow but it is almost certain her husband was still alive and that she had left him on account of his cruelty. She looked after Stephen's children with her own while he travelled and a year later, 5 Dec 1851 at Nelson, having ascertained Griffiths's death, they married. In 1864 she began to closely follow feminist movements in Britain and the USA and also began to write articles on the topic of women's rights, which her son-in-law and friend Charles Elliott, editor of the Nelson Examiner, published in his newspaper. She wrote under the pen name "Fémmina", primarily because her husband Stephen, now a local politician, objected to her views. In 1869, still under a pseudonym, she wrote an appeal to the men of NZ, the first pamphlet on the issue of women's suffrage to be published in NZ. Her argument was that it was necessary for women to obtain the vote in order for them to contribute fully to the progress of the nation. She also asked for the repeal of discriminatory legislation and appealed to men – particularly members of Parliament – to take up the cause of women's suffrage. Her pamphlet "created considerable interest both in New Zealand and abroad". She received a letter of support and congratulations from John Stuart Mill.
In 1857 the family moved from Nelson to Blenheim, where Stephen Müller took up the position of resident magistrate. They were joined by Mary's eldest son.
Unwilling, because of her husband's position, to become a public activist, Mary nonetheless met William Fox in private to discuss her views. According to the Brooklyn Museum, "the Married Women's Property Act of 1870 incorporated many of her ideas".
Most of the leadership for women achieving suffrage is attributed, rightly, to Kate Sheppard, but Mary Anne started her advocacy for women’s rights – publishing 'An Appeal to the Men of New Zealand' in 1869 – before Kate emigrated to NZ later that year. Kate always referred to Mary as NZ's pioneer suffragist. Mary revealed her identity only in 1898, seven years after her husband's death. She died in Blenheim on 18 July 1901.

Stephen Lunn Muller mentioned above married Mary Anne Griffiths, née Wilson, who was New Zealand's first suffragist. Mary campaigned and won the right for women to own property in their own right, and for women to be able to have limited custody of their children after divorce. She had suffered greatly from having to leave her eldest child in England. As soon as he was of age he followed his mother to NZ.

There are letters extant written between Kate Shepard and Mary, one with Mary congratulating Kate when NZ women won the vote.

Stephen's first wife, Mary Bernadette, made friends on board their ship to NZ with Mary Anne who cared for her own children as well as those of Mary Bernadette after the latter's death, and while Stephen went to and from England again. Some time later, after her divorce, Mary Anne and Stephen married.

She was a wise and wonderful woman.

Thanks for the heads-up Meury. Great stories are written about Mary Anne and other powerful, pioneer women of New Zealand who have changed life for all other women, not just in New Zealand

Mary Ann Müller (1829-1891) .. Acts to protect the property of married women were passed in 1870 and 1884, and in 1893 women won the vote. Mary Müller witnessed these reforms with pleasure and in 1898 she wrote to leading suffragist Kate Sheppard: 'Old & failing, it is cheering to watch the efforts of the younger and abler women striving bravely to succeed in obtaining rights so long unjustly withheld'. In December 1898, seven and a half years after her husband's death, her identity as 'Fémmina' was finally revealed. She then became known, through the writings of Kate Sheppard, as New Zealand's pioneer suffragist ..

.. with photo Fémmina: The story of NZ's unsung suffrage provocateur Mary Ann Müller .. Working diligently but anonymously, she’s credited with writing the first pamphlet on the women’s vote to be published in New Zealand. Yet her story is little known, even in Blenheim where, with her husband, she was one of the earliest settlers. The only reference to her name in the town is a road named after her husband ..

So sorry, as you can see I have the wrong birth-death years for Mary Ann Müller. She was born in London 22 Sep 1820 and died in Blenheim 18 July 1901
