James Arnold jnr. 1852 - 1890. Second son of James (Irish Jimmy) and Hannanh (W)ratt of Wilford Grove, Waimea West. Also an athlete. He went to Parihaka with the Waimea Rifles and contracted an illness which caused his early death at age 38. He married Sarah Margaret Fowler and they ran the Traveller's Rest Hotel at Riwaka until his death and his wife continued with the licence. He also went mustering and shearing at Hillersden and his diary of his daily expenses, earnings and tallies is still in the family.
