Benjamin, Solomon (1818–1888)

Notice received by cable conveys the announcement of the death of Solomon Benjamin, one of the early pioneers of the colony. The deceased arrived in Melbourne in 1838, and commenced business as a merchant in conjunction with his brother, David Benjamin; and Moses Benjamin afterwards joined the firm. The partnership closed in 1852, each having acquired an ample fortune. The deceased resided in London continuously, with the exception of a short visit to this city in 1878. He was a liberal supporter of all philanthropic institutions belonging to the city and colony.
