Marion Inglesant Hogarth, born on 24 May 1870, was the only daughter of Thomas Hogarth (1837-1913), a noted breeder of Ayrshire cattle, and his first wife Martha Lacey (1846-1871). Marion's mother died just nine days after her brother George was born on 10 Aug 1871. Thomas married again in 1873 to Margaret Bell Ramsay (1850-1883) and had five more sons between 1874 and 1881. He married a third time to Emma Maria Ditcham in 1885 but there were no more children. Thomas and his family lived at 'Melrose Cottage', Elphin Road, before moving to 'Glenburn', Sulphur Creek, on the North-West Coast in 1895.

Marion Hogarth was married to Frederick Napier, from St Marys, on 9 Aug 1899 at St Stephen's Church, Penguin, by Rev. L'Oste. Their four children were born between 1900 and 1908. They moved to Wynyard and lived in Hogg Street. Frederick died in 1922 aged 54 and was buried at the Cullenswood Anglican Cemetery. Marion died 35 years later, on 14 Apr 1957, aged 87, and was buried with her husband. Their daughter Marion Elizabeth lived to be 100. Marion Hogarth was a soprano in the Exhibition Choir in 1891-92. Her aunt Agnes Bulman is also pictured in the Launceston Family Album.
