4. JOHN3 BALLANCE (SAMUEL2, JOHN1) was born 1839 in Glenavy, Co., Antrim, Ireland, and died April 27, 1893 in New Zealand. He married (1) HARRIET "FANNY" TAYLOR 1863 in Co., Antrim, Ireland. She was born in Co., Antrim, Ireland, and died 1868 in New Zealand. He married (2) ELLEN ANDERSON 1870 in New Zealand. She was born in Co., Down, Ireland, and died in New Zealand.
John Ballance, (1839, Glenavy. Co., Antrim, Ireland-April 27,1893, New Zealand)
John Ballance, the eldest of eleven children of Samuel and Mary Ballance, was born in a cottage sited next to the restored house at Glenavy on 27 March 1839. His father was a tenant farmer on land belonging to the Hertford Estate and as the family grew in size the farmhouse was built to accommodate them. Disinterested in farming, John left school at fourteen and went to Belfast where he was apprenticed to an ironmonger in Belfast. At eighteen he left Ireland for Birmingham where he was a hardware salesman.
In 1863, at the age of 24, John Ballance married Fanny Taylor. Fanny suffered poor health and this, as well as the earlier settlement of her brother at Wanganui, spurred the couple to New Zealand in the hope that the conducive climate would aid her. Here John Ballance established the Evening Herald later called the Wanganui Herald. He owned it until his death, editing it whenever parliamentary duties permitted. He served in the Maori War of 1867 and in 1875 entered the House of Representatives, joining the Liberal Party, Minister of Lands and Native Affairs 1884-1887 and made his reputation in the spheres of the economy and land use. He held office as Colonial Treasurer (1878), as Minister of Lands, Native Affairs and Defence (1884-7), Leader of the opposition 1889 and Prime Minister [1891-3] As for his policies; they were bold and progressive and they won popularity for his party. He was instrumental in giving women the vote - world first - and paved the way for the liberal triumphs of his successor, Seddon. He died before he could see the popularity for the work he strived for.
Fanny died in 1868 and two years later Ballance married Ellen Anders, a native of Co., Down.
Ballance died of cancer on 27 April 1893 and was buried under an Irish granite headstone at Wanganui.
THE ULSTER NEW ZEALAND TRUST
The Ulster New Zealand Trust, a registered charity, was established in 1988 to restore the birthplace at Glenavy of New Zealand Prime Minister, John Ballance (1839-93) who founded the Wanganui Herald before entering Parliament in 1875. Elected as Prime Minister in 1890, Ballance launched major land reforms, paved the way for women's votes and introduced the world 's first welfare state. His restored birthplace commemorates not only his life and achievements but is also a centre for promoting the historical, cultural and economic links between Ireland and New Zealand.
