Otago Witness, 22 June 1893 THE FIRST WEDDING THE WAIAU
The Waiau is a vast district in the north-west of Southland. It has hitherto been tenanted chiefly by sheep and rabbits. Now it is becoming more settled, and will soon make its natural advantages tell on the welfare of New Zealand. The first marriage in the district, which took place on June 1, must therefore not pass unnoticed. On that day Miss Annie Scobie, daughter of Mr Scobie, of Eastern Bush, was joined in wedlock with Mr Malcolm Mouat, of Woodlands station, by the Rev A. Macdonald, of Otautau/ Invitations had been issued to 60 guests. The death of a neighbour, however, prevented that number attending. About 40 sat down to dinner, and more dropped in during the evening. Merry speeches were made by the Rev A. Macdonald, and Messrs Gilman, Bradley and Darley. Several of the guests have the unique distinction of having note localities named after them. After one of them the Cameron Range was named. the bridegroom's name is borne by a lake at the head of the Big river, while other enterprising men present were equally deserving of having their names similarly immortalised. Nearly all were pioneers, either as explorers. shepherds, or farmers. In this district ladies are rather scarce as yet, but there were importations from Invercargill and Otautau. In the evening the large granary was cleared for a dance. This, with songs and games, made the night pass pleasantly. At present there are, I believe, only three married couples west of the Waiau, where Mr and Mrs Mouat reside. I exclude the Wilson river goldfields. This district includes nearly half of the Wallace County and the whole of the Fiord County. But population is now running in like a flood, and the country which has been all desolate shall yet be made glad by them. By "them" I mean the wives. I am an advocate of settlement, and how can a man be properly settled unless he acts as Mr Mouat has done?

On Wednesday, September 18th, a very pretty and interesting wedding took place at Mr D.

The bride was Miss Annie Gilmour McLaren, daughter of Mr D. McLaren, and the bridgroom Mr Randolph Richard Piggot hardy, son of the late Mr Hardy, of Waimata. The bride, who was given away by her father, looked charming in her bridal robes of cream satin striped silk, with cream roucheings and long bridal veil to match, and orange blossoms. She carried a beautiful shower bouquet of white narcissus. The bridesmaid was Miss Margaret McLaren, sister of the bride, who also wore cream satin striped delaine, and carried a bouquet of egg lilies. The little page was Miss Constance Scobie, cousin of the bride, who was dressed in white and blue, sash and ribbons to match. Mr G. Hardy, of Balclutha, brother of the bridegroom was best man. The bridegroom's present to the bride was a beautiful silver fruit bowl and spoons to match, and the bride's present to the bridegroom a greenstone albert, mounted in gold, and gold pendant. The bridegroom's present to the bridesmaid was a lovely gold brooch set in rubies and pearls, and the bride's present to the best man a pair of gold sleeve links. The father's present to the bride was a handsome gold bangle with a lovely sapphire stone set in, and a handsome cheque. Rev A. MacDonald (Otautau) performed the ceremony, and Miss Hardy played the Wedding March on the piano. After the nuptial knot had been tied, the guests adjourned to the barn, amidst showers of rice and confetti, where the wedding breakfast was served, over one hundred guests sitting down to it. Five long tables were beautifully laid out, and ample justice was done to the good thins provided. The Rev. A. MacDonald occupied the chair, and performed his duties in his usual humorous style. The usual toasts were proposed and duly honoured. The presents were displayed in the sitting-room, and comprised articles handsome, useful and costly, including cheques and notes for a large sum. The young couple and wedding froup were photograped by Mrs J. Beggs. Games were indugled in during the afternoon, and one and all adjourned to the barn, where a sumptuous tea was partaken of, after which the barn was cleared for dancing, about forty couples taking part in the grand march, which was led off by the bride's parents, music being supplied by Messrs Scobie and Livingstone (violins), and W. S. Scobie (piano), while Mr A. Glendinning performed the duties of M.C. in excellent manner. During intervals, Miss Hardy (sister of the bridegroom) played and sang some very pretty pieces.

McLaren (uncle of the bride).

OBITUARY of Ann Scobie

There passed away in Invercargill on June 16th, at the ripe age of 76, one of the pioneers of Otago and Southland, in the person of Mrs Wm. Scobie. Her father, Mr Gilmour, occupied the farm of Fulbarr, 1 mile from Paisley, Scotland, where she was born. She was married on June 5th, 1862, in Paisley to Mr Wm. Scobie, and sailed soon afterwards for Dunedin. The young couple lived for some time in Dunedin, and then went to live at Merry Creek, Popotunoa, near Clinton, where Mr Scobie was agricultural manager. They were amongst the first settlers to take up land in Wairuna. They sold out their holding there, and came to Eastern Bush, Waiau district, Southland, where they resided for 28 years. Mr and Mrs Scobie were well-known in the Waiau district, being settled on a large farm, as well as in business as accommodation house keepers and storekeepers. They also kept post-office and telephone. About seven years ago they retired to Invercargill. It is worthy of note that from June 5th, 1862, their marriage day, to June 5th, 1912, make 50 years, so that Mr and Mrs Scobie saw their golden wedding, but were unable to celebrate it on account of the illness of Mrs Scobie, which terminated her life 11 days afterwards.
In the early days in the Waiau district, Mrs Scobie was called on to do a great deal of nursing, all of which she did gratuitously. Before there was a doctor in Otautau, she was looked on as the doctor in the Waiau. Her house was one that was known for its hospitality far and wide. Her house was like "The Auld Hoose" in the song, the rooms were not large, but they were fairly numerous, and it was wonderful how many wayfarers she could stow away in comfort for the night. She had a large sympathetic heart. Hers was not a self-centred existence, but an unselfish one, for she interested herslf in others and delighted to help them. She had great tenacity of purpose and punctuality, If a thing had to be done, there was no hesitation, and it had to be done at the time arranged. There was also a deep reverence for things sacred. She did not tell her children to go to church; she went herself, and they followed. They were set a good example.
One was not astonished at her wonderful end. After the aged couple had read a chapter in the Bible, verse about, before going to bed, she said to her husband: "This will be the last night you and I will be together." Mr Scobie said: "How do you think that?" She said: "I just know it. I am going home." She never spoke after that. She took a sudden seizure which deprived her of speech. Mrs Scobie was laid to rest in the Eastern cemetery, Invercargill, and Re. A. MacDonald, M.A., Otautau, officiated in the house and at the grave.
Mrs Scobie has left behind her husband and four of a family, all settlers in the Waiau, namely, Mrs Donald McLaren, Mrs Mamcolm Mouat, Mr Wm. Scobie jnr., and Mr John Scobie, to whom the sympathy of a wide circle of friends is extended.

Mr and Mrs Scobie were well known in the Waiau district, being settled on a large farm as well as in business as accommodation house and storekeepers.

About 12 years ago he went to Invercargill to live. Mrs Scobie predeceased him six years ago. Mr Scobie has left behind him four of a family, all settlers in the Waiau - namely, Mrs Donald McLaren, Mrs Malcolm Mouat, Mr William Scobie, jun., and Mr John Scobie
