Badgery, John Alexander (1835–1916)

John Badgery, n.d.

from Pastoral Review, 16 June 1916

The death occurred last month at his home, Ivy Hall, Exeter, N.S.W., of Mr. John Alexander Badgery, the eldest of ten brothers whose names are indelibly associated with the development of the pastoral industry of New South Wales.

He was born at Exeter in 1835 on the estate taken up by his father, the late Henry Badgery, in 1820, and for the greater part of his life he lived in the district in which he was born and in which he died. The family's interest in stock matters goes back to a very early date in the history of the country, as Henry Badgery, who was born at Hawkesbury in 1808, was the son of James Badgery, who arrived in Sydney in 1795 in charge of some live stock from England. The late Mr. J. A. Badgery, besides owning Ivy Hall and Burra Station in the Queanbeyan district, held another property in Queensland.

He always led the hard, open-air life of the pioneer, and enjoyed good health to the last. He was widely known and generally respected for his unfailing honesty of purpose, and was ever an active worker in public bodies for the advancement of the district, such as the shire council, pastures protection board, and the Berrima A. H. and P. Society, of which he occupied the presidency for many terms. He was twice married, and leaves seven children. Only two of his brothers are left, Mr. Henry S. Badgery and Mr. Frederick Badgery.

Mr. Badgery was looked upon as a splendid judge of Shorthorn cattle, and on many occasions acted in that capacity at the Royal Agricultural Show in Sydney and at Wagga Wagga, Goulburn, and other shows. He was also chosen, and went to the great Philadelphia Show in U.S.A. to judge the Shorthorn cattle there.
