- Mr Christopher Waugh an Old Colonist, who died in 1895, was one of the original party of settlers, who came out in the ship “Bombay,” in 1865. He was born at Penrith, Cornwall, England, in 1839, and was brought up as a coal miner. On his arrival in New Zealand, he secured a ten-acre grant in the Bombay district, and bought seventy-one acres near the school in Paparata in 1873. This property was all brought into cultivation during Mr. Waugh's lifetime. He took considerable interest in educational matters, and served for some time on the local school committee. Mr. Waugh was married, in 1862, to a daughter of Mr. Walton Smith, sometime of Cambridge, and left four sons and four daughters.

- There is a flaw in the above there is no Penrith in Cornwall. Also I have doubts he was ever a miner. If he was it was a very short period.
- However there is a Penrith in Westmoreland. Penrith is the nearest town to the villages covered by East Ward. This borders Cumberland and both are now called Cumbria. There were two Christopher Waugh born in England around this time, The other one born in Howarth, Durham married a Mary. He was a coal miner in Durham and remained in Durham after 1865. This why the Auckland Durham marriage confuses.
- As Christopher and Esther married in Auckland Co. Durham it does seem he may also have worked as a miner. This would have been in the Durham coal fields. I cannot sort out an 1861 census to confirm this.
