  • Notes 
    • According to grandson Norman Robert Pamment, in a letter of August 1996, ....."Frederick Arthur drove the service cars carrying mail and passengers to early South Westland community before buying a farm in Whataroa and settling there......dying at age of 74."

      The following text is believed to have come from a book about Arthur's Pass Stagecoaches:

      "Only five rivers on the ninety-odd mile journey from Hokitika were bridged, leaving seven major crossings and many smaller fords. Managing the leather clutches and simple brakes of the old Studebaker and white 'service cars' after repeated immersion in water required a skilled driver. On reaching Franz Josef he had to transfer his mail to a packhorse and take it over the Weheka Hills to Fox Glacier."

      Buried in Whataroa, in Plot no. 1 - 90 Cemetery block 4
