More Matheson place names

The list of Matheson place names in New Zealand continues to grow as we find more features that bear the family name.  I’ve just discovered that the newish development near Wanaka called Albert Town contains a Matheson Crescent.  So far this article lists 11 Matheson Roads, and one each of Matheson Bay Road, Mathesons Road, Matheson Way, Matheson Crescent and Matheson Street in New Zealand, as well as the famous lake, a bay and a mountain.

If you know of how any of these places got their names, do tell us.
