The Cyclopedia of New Zealand [Canterbury Provincial District]

Mr. James Hatfield

Mr. James Hatfield, the Proprietor, is a native of England, and came to New Zealand in 1879 by the ship “Crusader.” For several years after his arrival he was connected with the service of the Union Steamship Company, and on leaving that was in the employment of the Canterbury Club for seven years. Having acquired possession of the Royal Hotel, Oxford Terrace, he conducted that business most successfully for five years, and in 1897 purchased “Coker's,” which he has carried on with increased prosperity. Mr. Hatfield is a Freemason of old standing, and a member of the Canterbury Lodge; and he is also a member of the Order of Druids. He is ably assisted in the domestic management of “Coker's” by Mrs Hatfield, who as a hostess is equally as popular as he himself is as a host.
