  • Notes 
    • A quote from Records of Early Riverton and District, Centenary Celebrations, Riverton N.Z., 1837-1937:
      We come now to one of the originally largest of our island bushes, namely, Stevens Bush.
      George Stevens, after whom the bush was named, held a large area, including much bush. He called his property Burlington. On the lower part of it Hugh Molloy and his wife resided as employees of Stevens. Their descendants are a numerous clan in various parts of Southland (page 122).
      For years Hugh Molloy and his wife, who was Mrs Valli's sister, resided on the Valli farm. They had many sons and two daughters. Valli and Molloy and their sons became experts in sheepshearing operations and used to make annual trips up-country to the sheep stations. The Molloy parents and their growing young people had several changes of residence. Their descendants are very numerous, and the name Molloy is widely known in Southland (page 124)
    • There passed away at the residence of his son-in-law (Mr W Batt) at Waimatuku, a very old resident of the district and one of the earliest settlers at Gummies Bush, in the person of Mr Hugh Molloy, aged 84 years. A native of Queen's County, Ireland, he arrived at the Bluff in 1864 with his wife and 3 children and came on to Gropers Bush to work for his brother-in-law, the late Mr Joseph Valli. He was for many years in the service of the late Mr George Stevens of 'Burlington' Gummies Bush and eventually took up a place for himself at Danieltown, where he lived the greater part of his time. He was a quiet, hard-working man of a happy disposition and was always ready to do a neighbour a good turn. Mr Molloy, whose wife predeceased him some 38 years ago, had a family of eight sons and two daughters and there are 49 grandchildren and eight great grandchildren. His remains will be interred in the Riverton Cemetery tomorrow. Source - Western Star, 12 Feb 1918.
      Correction: Mr Joseph Valli was a 'cousin' not/not 'brother-in-law'.
    • Residence: 1859, Athgarvan, Carragh, Kildare, Ireland,
