John Hall (1851–1925)

The late Mr. John Hall, who died at his residence, "Vron," Bishopsbourne, on Tuesday, was a very well-known and respected farmer in that district. Mr, Hall, who was in his 75th year, was at one time a breeder of Shorthorn cattle and Southdown sheep, and was successful in many agricultural shows. For the past few years, through ill health, he had taken no active part in the control of his estate. Mr. Robert Hall, of Hagley, is a brother of the deceased gentleman, and another brother, Mr. C. J. Hall, "The Retreat," Deloraine, was killed in a monoring accident some little time ago.
