Bellett, George (1813–1885)

Another has been added to the long list of old identities who have passed away. At an early hour this morning, 16th inst., George Bellette [Bellett], sen., of Upper Carlton, formerly of Sorell, died. He was born at Sorell, in the year 1811, since when he had carried on farming pursuits for over 50 years in the Sorell district. He had gathered around him many friends, while enemies were almost unknown to him, Some few years, ago he disposed of his farm at Sorell and came to Bream Creek where the majority of his family were residing, and there ended the remainder of his life. During the last few days his health, which had hitherto been good, began to fail, and after about six days illness, he quietly passed over to the majority at the advanced age of 74.
