Calton, Henry (1812–1852)

On Saturday, June 12th, in the Iron-bark Gully, at the Bendigo, after two days' illness of inflammation of the bowels, Mr. Henry Calton, late of Gawler Town, leaving a disconsolate widow and two children to deplore the early death of a most affectionate husband and father. Deceased, who was in his 41st year, was one of the early colonists, having arrived here with Mrs. Calton in the same ship with Governor Gawler. He was known and respected throughout the province as a benevolent and energetic colonist, and will be much lamented, especially at Gawler Town, in which he was for so many years a leading, influential, and truly public-spirited resident.
