  • Notes 
    • Rangiputangatahi (Rangi) Mawhete. Justice of the Peace. Member of the New Zealand Legislative Council. O.B.E. William Arthur Moffatt (Mawhete) was born at Tiakitahuna (Jackeytown), south of Palmerston North, on 4 March 1880, the son of Emiri Mokena (Emily Morgan) and her husband, William Moffatt. His mother, also known as Arani or Arini, was the grand-daughter of Wiremu Kingi Te Aweawe. His main tribal affiliation was Ngati Hineaute of Rangitane, and he had connections to Muaupoko, Ngati Apa, Ngati Te Upokoiri, Hamua and the Whanganui tribes. His father, an engineer working in the King Country, was killed by Maori near Taumarunui in November 1880. When young William was baptised in April 1881, he was given the name Rangiputangatahi and it was as Rangi Mawhete that he was later best known.
