Waldemar Stanislas MALAQUIN believed to have been born in Orleans, France in 1859, to well travelled parents. Don't know much about Waldemar's early life although the family stories tell of him being in the same classrooms as Nicholas II. He arrived in New Zealand as a Boot agent, but quickly took up teaching French in Christchurch schools including Boys High, St Margaret's (Ngaio Marsh mentions him in her autobiography), and New Brighton Primary, he also taught privately. Waldemar married in 1883 in Rangiora, to Elizabeth ELLIS. They had six children. Waldemar died in 1926 estranged from most of his family. There is a lovely obituary for him in the Christchurch Boys High Magazine. Waldemar had a brother Joseph who migrated to and lived in NSW, Australia. Information courtesy of Michelle Rowe. Michele originally found out what vessel he came on the through the card index at the Canterbury Museum, Christchurch. Posted 8 March 2006.
