Enoch died 10 November 1894 aged 52?
12 Nov 1894 It is with sincere regret that we record the death of Mr Enoch Maddock, which occurred at his residence near Eltham Road, on Saturday at midnight. Deceased was about 52 years of age (BDM has 57); he was an old and respected resident of the place and his demise will cause much concern. His death had not been unexpected latterly, he having suffered severly for some time past from the dread cancer, which had lodged at the root of the tongue. Mr Maddock was born in Nelson and accompanied his father when the latter took up the management of Starborough station some 30 or 40 years ago. Deceased became Inspector for the Wairau Awatere and Omaka Road Boards for about eight years, when he resigned to enter into some contracting engagements which occupied his attention till 1890. He then took the Inspectorship of the Awatere Road Board, and had occupied that position till his death. Deceased was well known publicly in connection with the contract which he and Mr Parker carried out on the Dashwood section of the Picton - Hutunui railway. Some ?18,000 (2012 equivalent of $3,000,000) was expended in the course of this contact, and the trouble which arose over the work, involving Messrs Parker and Maddock in heavy financial losses, is an important matter of local history. Mr Maddock worked on the Wakamarina gold diggings for about six months in 1866. He was a member of the Foresters' Society; and in all public and private capacities in which he engaged he was noted for his sterling worth of character. A wife and several children, most of whom are young, are left to mourn a loss which we are sorry to hear has occurred in not the best of circumstances. To the family we tender our hearfelt sympathy in their unfortunate bereavement. Mrs Knight, of Maxwell road and Mr Thos. Maddock, are sister and brother of deceased, The funeral took place this afternoon
... The Awatere Road Board presented his wife with a cheque for ?14 13s 3d as a token of the Board's esteem for her late husband ($2,560 in 2012)

Harriett died 30 November 1919 aged 61
31 November 1919 A one time resident of Blenheim, Mrs Harriet Maddock passed away on Tuesday morning last at the home of her daughter, Mrs Durrant, of the New Commercial Hotel, Wellington, after a long illness. The late Mrs Maddock, who was a daughter of the late Mr Andrew Henderson, was born at Okaramio in 1856, and was in her sixty-third year. Her husband, who was inspector for the Awatere Road Board, died twenty-five years ago. Mrs Maddock left Blenheim for Wellington some few years ago, and had resided there ever since.
She leaves eight children:- Richard at Otaki, James at Wellington, Percy at Levin, Mrs Lovell at Wairau Valley, Mrs Durrant at Wellington, mrs Sisson at Seddon, Mrs Inkster at Nelson and Mrs Webb at Wellington.
