      On 27 January 1894, William Wattie married Annie Elizabeth Gifkins (1874-1962), whose surname was variously spelt Jifkins/Jefkins. The ceremony took place at the bride's home in Waikari and was conducted by the Rev. J. Orchard. Born in Oxford, North Canterbury, Annie was the oldest of four children and the only daughter of James Gifkens and his wife Sarah nee Crowday, who married at Lewknor, Oxfordshire, England on 23 January 1869. They emigrated to New Zealand the following year, departing London 27 May 1870 on the ship "Monarch", and reaching their destination, Lyttelton, Christchurch, on 6 September 1870. They moved to the Ashley Gorge area soon after their arrival, shifting later to the Manawatu in the early 1900s.

      After their wedding, William and Annie Wattie settled at Hawarden, North Canterbury, where  four of their five sons were born - Angus John (1895-1965); William Archibald, known as Archie, (1898-1941); James, known as both Jim and Jimmy, (1902-1974) and Ronald Eric (1905-1969). The fifth, Norman Bruce (1912-1964), was born later in Marlborough.
