Armytage, George Herbert (1860–1925)

General regret will be felt at the death of Mr. George Herbert Armytage, which took place at his Toorak, Melbourne, residence on 18th December. He was born at Fulham Station, Balmoral, Vic., in March 1860, and was the second son of the late Charles Henry Armytage, of Fulham and Mt. Sturgeon Stations, in the Western District of Victoria, and "Como," South Yarra. After terms at Thompson's Toorak Grammar School and the Toorak College he went to England in 1876, and completed his education at the Western College, Brighton. Here he proved to be a champion school boy athlete, winning the South of England Schools' Victor Ludorum Cup two years in succession. He returned to Australia in 1879, and put in some time with Dalgety and Co. Limited, and subsequently on Afton Downs, Hughenden, Queensland. In 1886 he returned to Fulham Station, where he remained as managing partner until 1912. The late Mr. Armytage has aptly been described as a kindly man of the old school.
