James Thomas CAMP + Mary Ann GOODMAN - Cambridge, Waikato

Journal by ngairedith

James Thomas CAMP
In 1873 James had one acre in Cambridge - section 402 - and in 1874 he married *Miss Goodman.
James enrolled in the Cambridge Cavalry Volunteers in 1874 and became a member of the Cavalry and Cambridge bands in 1878. He ended his Cavalry days as a Corporal in 1882.
He was a storekeeper in Cambridge and became bankrupt in 1875. He took on hairdressing, then in 1880 sold off his Stationery and Fancy Goods business, plus 400 books from his lending library.
At that time he bought a site at Tamahere and built a 15-bed hotel where he became a storekeeper, hotelier and blacksmith. He also became the pound keeper and took on tailoring. He served on the School Committee and Church Building Committee and ran a very successful sports day.
Then tragedy struck - the hotel burnt down and the Camps lost two of their children - Albert aged 10 and Edward aged 3. Two weeks later they had Charles and Hilda baptised.
They sold up at Tamahere and moved to Auckland where James continued in the tailoring business and his wife became the proprietress of the Waikato Club.
