Benjamin, Benjamin (1838–1912)

Mr. Benjamin Benjamin, whose death at Katoomba was recently announced, was an old identity, and was formerly largely interested in mining matters. He was one of the pioneers of the Kiandra goldfields, and was for some years at Copeland. In his early days he was in business in Queensland, and was well known both in that State and in New South Wales. Mr. Benjamin, who was born at Sydney 73 years ago, was the son of one of the city's early merchants—Mr. Samuel Benjamin, of the firm of Benjamin and Moses. Mr. Samuel Benjamin, of Sydney, and his brothers, Messrs. David and Moses Benjamin, of Melbourne, were well-known figures in the mercantile life of these cities in the fifties. The latter was the father of the late Sir Benjamin Benjamin, a former Mayor of Melbourne.
