    Obituary

    Another respected old settler passed away at the Wellington Hospital on Thursday in the person of Mrs. Charles Mudgway, whose name is associated with many historic events connected with this city. Her husband, Mr. Charles Mudgway, arrived with his parents in the ship Catherine Stuart Forbes in Wellington in June, 1841, and was married here some years afterwards. They resided at Pipitea Point for many years, and whilst living there the rebel natives looted their dwelling-place. Afterwards Mr. Mudgway removed to the Hutt, where he took part in fighting the Maoris, and claims to have shot the first Maori in an engagement under Lieutenant White, of the 96th Regiment. Mr. Mudgway also formed, part of the gang who wore engaged in making the first road undertaken by the New Zealand CompanyŚ namely, from Pipitea Point to Kaiwarra. His wife, whose decease we are noticing, was with him during his early trials, and for the last 26 years they have been living together at Porirna. We believe we are correct in stating that Mrs. Mudgway, who was a daughter of the late Mr. Sunnex, of the Hutt, leaves a host of relatives, eight of her own progeny, 32 grandchildren, and 50 great grandchildren, making altogether 90 descendants, not including other near relatives, all of whom reside in the Wellington Provincial District. This is an excellent record.
