British astrologer; vocationally an architect and builder in Havelock North, New Zealand. He was also a well-known exhibition photographer and he was celebrated for the wood and leather furniture he designed and made - a skill carried on by one of his sons.

An engaging fellow, he looked like a gnome with his big, pointed ears. Jim married four times. His first wife had a lingering illness and left him widowed in 1916 with four kids. He married a woman who lied about her age and was actually ten years older than she claimed; it was a total disaster. His third alliance was a woman with two kids who had been deserted by her husband. They ran away and lived together for 12 years, having two kids, without legalizing their union; she died in 1938. Jim's fourth marriage was in 1943 when he was 65 to a 50-year-old bride.

His health was good up to his last two months, when Jim died of leukemia in 1958.
