‘The Descendants’ hits close to home for descendant Wil Patterson

W

Family

hen Wilcox Patterson of Portola Valley first read “The Descendants,” the book on which the Academy Award-winning movie was based, it was a deja vu experience — the history of main character Matt King seemed an awful lot like the history of Mr. Patterson’s own Hawaiian ancestors. Story by Watching the movie proBarbara Wood vided even more deja vu for Mr. Patterson, known as Wil, and his wife Sandra. The beach house in the movie looks just like one owned by a cousin on the north shore of Kauai, and other scenes were suggestive of Mr. Patterson’s family background as well. “I thought, wait a minute — this is getting awfully familiar,” Mr. Patterson says. Some of the characters’ names even matched those of his family. “We actually have a cousin Hugh in the family, but the character played in the movie is the antithesis of our cousin Hugh,” Mr. Wilcox says. It turns out there is a very good reason for the similarities: Author Kaui Hart Hemmings is a distant

cousin of Mr. Patterson’s, and although she has denied in interviews that her book follows any specific family, it borrows a lot of the history of her, and Mr. Patterson’s, own family. Mr. Patterson and Ms. Hart Hemmings are descendants of Abner Wilcox and Lucy Eliza Hart Wilcox, missionary teachers who settled on the island of Kauai in 1846. One of their eight sons, George Norton Wilcox, became one of the wealthiest people in Hawaii and an influential politician and philanthropist before he died at the age of 93 in 1933. George Wilcox’s brother, Charles Hart Wilcox, was Mr. Patterson’s maternal great-grandfather and Kaui

Hart Hemmings’ maternal great-great-grandfather. George Wilcox, who never married or had children of his own, left his fortune in trust to his great-nieces and nephews, including Wilcox Patterson’s mother. A board of directors including many family members managed the business, called Grove Farm, until 2000, when it was sold to AOL founder Steve Case, a native of Hawaii with family ties to Grove Farm. Like the sale of the family land in “The Descendants,” the sale was not without controversy. An unsuccessful lawsuit filed by some family members to See WIL PATTERSON, page 19

try to reverse the sale was dismissed by a federal judge in 2008. While Wil Patterson has strong family ties to Hawaii, he did not visit the islands until he was an adult. His great-grandfather left Hawaii for California in 1857, and Wil Patterson was born and raised in California. He and Sandy have lived in Portola Valley since 1988. He knows his family in Hawaii well, though. In 1980 Mr. Patterson, who has a background in the banking industry, was asked to join the board of directors of Grove Farm. He served until 2000, attending quarterly meetings in

The family also donated the land and funds for the Kauai Community College and the Wilcox Community Hospital, both in Lihue. Both Grove Farm and the Wai’oli Mission House are in the National Register of Historic Places, and Wil Patterson says many of his relatives provide financial and volunteer support for the museums. “There’s a tremendous amount of family philanthropy there,” he says. The family also has ties to the Kilohana Plantation complex in Lihue, featuring the 1936 mansion of Gaylord Parke Wilcox, George Wilcox’s nephew, son of his brother Sam. Tourists visit the complex to shop, ride the Kauai Plantation Railway into the rain for-

Hawaii, but was no longer on the board when Grove Farm was sold. There are some significant differences between Mr. Patterson’s family and that of “The Descendants” family. The fictional Hawaiian family got much of the land it owned when an ancestor married a Hawaiian princess with major landholdings on Kauai. In the real world, according to the book “Grove Farm Plantation,” 10,500 acres of George Wilcox’s property was purchased from a Hawaiian princess, Ruth Keelikolani, who wanted the money to build herself a mansion in Honolulu. While the family no longer owns the Grove Farm Company, the Waioli Corporation, a nonprofit formed in 1975 by Mabel Wilcox, niece of George Wilcox and daughter of Sam Wilcox, retains ownership of the heart of the Grove Farm sugar plantation. The 100-acre historic site includes the Wilcox home and some of the locomotives that were used to transport sugar cane. Located in Lihue, on the east shore of Kauai, it can be visited by appointment. The Waioli Corporation also owns the Wai’oli Mission House museum, home of Abner and Lucy Wilcox, near Hanalei. Many visitors to the North Shore of Kauai are also familiar with the distinctive green Hui’ia Church in Hanalei, built in 1915 with money donated by Abner and Lucy’s sons Sam, George and Albert Wilcox.

est, tour the historic home or eat at Gaylord’s Restaurant. Even without the family ties to author Kaui Hart Hemmings, Wil Patterson may have seen parallels between his life and that of the family in “The Descendants.” On his father’s side of the family, George Washington Patterson came to California in 1949 for the Gold Rush. He eventually took up farming in Fremont and Livermore, and amassed major landholdings, some of which are still in the family. Ardenwood Historic Farm in Fremont was GW Patterson’s home, donated to the city of Fremont by the family in 1974. Local residents may know Wil Patterson from his civic activities, including membership in the Menlo Park Rotary Club since 1970, and as a past president of the club’s foundation. In Portola Valley, he has been on the Traffic Committee for 16 years, serving many years as its chairperson, as well as serving on the Emergency Preparedness and Public Works committees. A

2012-13 Capital Improvement Program/General Plan Consistency: Consideration of consistency of the 2012-2013 projects of the Five-Year Capital Improvement Plan with the General Plan. STUDY SESSION Study Session/Jason Chang for CS Bio/1 and 20 Kelly Court: Request for a study session for the demolition of the existing building located on 1 Kelly Court and a partial demolition of the building located at 20 Kelly Court. The proposed project would include a merger of the two lots to create one building. The existing parcels contain two detached buildings with a total gross floor area of 31,266 square feet. The project would result in the demolition of 17,766 square feet of gross floor area, and the construction of 24,157 square feet of gross floor area for a total gross floor area of 37,657, which is a net increase of 6,391 square feet of gross floor area. Both parcels are located in the M-2 (General Industrial) zoning district and the project would require a rezoning from M-2 (General Industrial) to M-2 (X) (General Industrial, Conditional Development) to exceed the maximum height limit of 35 feet. The Hetch Hetchy rightof-way to the rear of the property would be utilized for required parking spaces. The proposed project would also include an increase in the quantities of hazardous materials from the previously approved use permit due to the increase in production activities, associated with the development and manufacturing of instruments for the biotech industry. NOTICE IS HEREBY FURTHER GIVEN that said Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on public hearing items in the Council Chambers of the City of Menlo Park, located at 701 Laurel Street, Menlo Park, on Monday, April 2, 2012, 7:00 p.m. or as near as possible thereafter, at which time and place interested persons may appear and be heard thereon. If you challenge this item in court, you may be limited to raising only those issues you or someone else raised at the public hearing described in this notice, or in written correspondence delivered to the City of Menlo Park at, or prior to, the public hearing.
