  • Notes 


    • James and his brother Richard leased farm land in Upper Waiwera from William Moyes in 1893 and 1894.
      James also worked for Henry Bartlett, a builder in Wainui area 1890s and early 1900s. Bartlett's notebook records James working on the School Teacher's House at Waiwera in Nov 1904.
      James assigned his interest in the lease to Richard's wife Mildred in 1909, and later went on to farm at Browns Bay. James also bred racehorses and sold them to the Honourable Elliot Davis and Oliver Nicholson, who raced them in partnership with considerable success.
      James built his own house in Glencoe Rd, Brown's Bay, of pit-sawn timber. His sister Mary joined him in Brown's Bay, and she inherited the house and farm when James (who never married) died in 1935. James was buried in the Silverdale Anglican cemetery.
      It is understood that James had no children. However, there are listings in the 1911 and 1914 Waitemata electoral rolls for James Howell junr., Upper Waiwera, farmer. There are two 1919 entries for James Howell. These are unexplained.
