Ayers, Harry Lockett (1844–1905)

The death of Mr. Harry Lockett Ayers, at the age of 61 years, occurred on Friday morning at his residence on East-terrace. He was the second son of the late Sir Henry Ayers, and his widow is a daughter of the late Sir John Morphett. For many years Mr. Ayers was associated with his brother as senior partner in the financial firm of H. L. & A. E. Ayers, who were the attorneys and representatives of several English capitalists and a number of old colonists residing in England. The deceased was one of the trustees of the old South Australian Mining Association, the proprietors of the Burra Burra mine. He was a man of genial disposition. He never took any active interest in politics. He had been in failing health for some time, so his death was not unexpected. Two sons (Messrs. Sydney and John Ayers) and three daughters (Mesdames Howard Lloyd and Gerald Cowle and Miss Ayers) survive him.
