George Henderson had been cruising in the Pacific islands aboard the schooner 'CERCI'. He sailed into Auckland unaware that his father, Thomas Maxwell Henderson had passed away and gained the sad news of his death on arrival. George had been unwell himself over a period of a year and the abdominal pains he suffered had worsened during his voyage. He attended the doctor soon after his return, and over the next three months his condition deteriorated and he was in considerable pain and confined to his house. He died on the 11th November, 1886 of cancer of the liver and was interred in the family grave at Grafton Cemetery on Symonds St., Auckland."

The New Zealand Herald of 12 Nov 1886
