Badgery, Henry (1803–1880)

Mr. Henry Badgery, senior, J.P., of Vine Lodge, Sutton Forest, died at 4 p.m. on November 18, after an illness of several weeks' duration. Mr. Badgery was seventy-seven years of age, and was a native of the colony, having been born at Richmond in 1803, on the property of his father, who was one of the first free capitalists who arrived in New South Wales. The name of Badgery frequently occurs in the records of the early days of the colony. Fifty-nine years ago the deceased gentleman settled at Sutton Forest, where he obtained by grant and purchase a valuable estate of about ten thousand acres of rich land; and there he continued till the outbreak of the gold discovery, when for a time he went to the goldfields in the Braidwood district, but soon returned to Sutton Forest. Mr. Badgery was greatly liked for his genial disposition; and his friends and connections throughout the colony are very numerous.
