James Wates, 1804/5, Erith - d. 2.9.1872 at Rosherville Hotel, Parish of Northfleet (67). He seems to have moved to Gravesend before 1830 and was a carpenter and builder in 1832; also being a licensee of a Commercial Tavern or Public House near the Garrison. In 1839 it was known as Wates Hotel, and he seems to have ceased to work as a builder. In 1847 he had moved to Commercial Place and in 1858 he had a "Family Hotel", Whitehall Place. There is an old advertisement in existence, which shows James' business ability, it is headed by a very good woodcut of the hotel from the river, with lively river scene with river boats of the period. *
The death of his wife may have influenced his decision to sell the hotel, and he may not have been able to run such a big place without her help. *

He died at Rosherville Hotel, so it seems that he took over another licence, of possibly a smaller and more "modern" place, which was not so influenced by the fall in river traffic. When James died, he left his niece Esther Bone everything in his Will, dated 12.8.1872 and proved on 10.10.1872 (under £2,000) thus cutting out his son and granddaughters. It could have been "undue influence", but Esther depended on him and Edward was a prosperous man.  *
