About Henry Clarence Hoyte

Henry Hoyte opened a chemist shop in Tauranga; "Mr H, C. Hoyte announces that be will open his chemist’s and druggist’s establishment tomorrow, and that he will then be prepared to offer to tho public all the necessary articles pertaining to his business. Mr Hoyle has evidently spared no pains in making his shop attractive, and under the new regime it is quite an ornament to the line of business premises on the Strand, and reflects great credit upon tho tradesmen—Mr Koller, the carpenter, and Mr Clarebrough, the painter—who have carried out the necessary alterations."

Obituary; "The Late Mr. H. C. Hoyte" Monday. A large and impressive funeral took place to-day, when the body of Mr. H. C. Hoyte, one of the original Katikati settlers, was consigned to its last home. Mr. Hoyte arrived by Mr. Vesey Stewart's first immigrants' boat, the Carisbrooke Castle, in 1876, and for some years afterwards was a settler at Katikati, but ultimately decided to go into business at Tauranga at his original business, that of a chemist. One of his sons is Mr, E. Hoyte, traveller for Messrs. Sharland and Co., and who shortly takes up his father's business here as a chemist, and the other sons are all well-known in social and athletic circles in the district and in Auckland. Numerous telegrams of condolence have been received by the bereaved family, and Mr. Hoyte's death leaves a very appreciable break in the list of our old residents. The coflln and hearse were fairly covered with wreaths and messages of heartfelt condolence from friends from all through the district aud Auckland, and other places, where the family were so well known. Mr. Hoyte was a native of Dublin, Ireland, and the youngest surviving son of a former High Sheriff, Alderman, and Mayor of that city. He was a prominent member of the Masonic fraternity, in which he held very high rank. He was a Prince, Mason of the Grandmasters Lodge, Ireland, and one of the founders of the original lodge, Tauranga, 462, 1.C., holding the position of W.M. He took a great interest in Masonic matters generally. He leaves a widow and grown-up family, consisting of four sons and three daughters, to mourn their loss."
