William (Bill, also Samuel) WILLIAMS1

Father*Samuel WILLIAMS1 b. c 1819, d. 1883
Mother*Ann MANRY b. c 1825, d. 1860
William (Samuel) WILLIAMS
William (Bill, also Samuel) WILLIAMS was born in Timaru, Canterbury, on 22 September 1856. Note that this date is suspect, as he was supposedly 25 when married, and 81 at death; however a birth date of 1854 would clash with his parent's movements and the birth-date of his sister Rebecca.1

It is unclear why his marriage record and the birth records of some of his children use the name 'Samuel', especially as his nickname seems to have been 'Bill' throughout his life.
He is regarded as the first white boy born in Timaru, in the old Rhodes' cottage.
At the age of 14 he was apprenticed to a builder in Christchurch, but left and walked with a party over the Southern Alps to Kumara on the West Coast (he spent his 20th birthday in the alps).
He worked in the Kumara goldfields on a sluice, and later on the construction of tunnels through the alps to Christchurch (but not the Otira rail tunnel).
The Hokitika Museum holds a medal he won for rifle shooting, and a cup for running - he was also a member of the Kumara Brass Band, the Fire Brigade and various school committees.1

He married Sarah Ann SHIMPLETON, daughter of (--?--) SHIMPLETON and Sarah MOFFAT, in Kumara, Westland, on 24 December 1879. Given Sarah's age, her mother provided a consent form for the marriage.2,1

William died on 10 July 1936 at Greymouth Hospital in Greymouth, Westland, at age 79.1,3 He was buried at the Karoro cemetery in Greymouth.4
