      An obituary for James (died 1981) reads:

      'Hamilton has lost an old identity with the death of James Mason aged 93.
      Mr Mason was born in Hamilton in 1887. His parents were among the town's earliest settlers, arriving in the mid-1870s.
      In his early days Mr Mason worked as a carpenter and railway builder. After service in the army during World War I he returned to Hamilton and worked in the borough council's engineering department before spending 17 years with Ellis and Burnand.
      In his latter years Mr Mason made a hobby of carving wooden kiwis, sending hundreds of them to friends overseas.
      He is survived by three children, four grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.'
