This chapter examines the regional identity and associational life of English migrants in New Zealand before the First World War. It describes the nature and activities of English county associations and Yorkshire societies. It suggests that organisations celebrating ‘Englishness’ had little success in New Zealand during this period because of a weak sense of a collective ‘English’ identity among the English–born or English–descended majority. This chapter also mentions that the assertion of a separate English identity were unacceptable to the local community that placed a strong premium on social cohesion.

Keywords:   English migrants, New Zealand, regional identity, associational life, county associations, Yorkshire societies, English identity, local community, social cohesion
