We regret to record the death of an old but highly respected resident of Waihi, Auckland,
New Zealand, in the person of Mr. William Henry Rawle Ellis, which took place at the
hospital on the 28th March after a short illness. The deceased was connected with the
erection of the first Battery on the Waihi Company property, which at that time was built on
the site of the present No. 1 shaft. He had been in Waihi, off and on, since that period and
for the last 10 years had been continually employed at the Waihi Company's Battery. Mr.
Ellis, who was 73 years of age, saw service in the Maori war. He leaves a widow, five
daughters and three sons to mourn their loss. He came to New Zealand in the early days,
from Summerside, P.E.I.. He was the second son of the late Mr. Robert Ellis, brother of
Mrs. H.C. Green, and uncle of Mrs. Holden Mills of Summerside. His first to Waihi was
made some 30 years ago. His married son, Mr. H. Ellis, and Mrs. Bond, and Mrs.
Cuthbertson, his two married daughters reside in Auckland. He was a member of the King
Hiram Masonic Lodge, Summerside. The funeral took place at Auckland on the 31st May.
It was private and attended only by relatives.; Niece=Catherine Penelope Green, Spouse=Susannah Fernley Fisher, Parent=Robert Ellis, Sibling=Elizabeth Caroline Ellis, Witness=Agnes Ellis, Witness=Hilda May Ellis, Witness=Henry William Ellis16
