Carter, Caroline (1848–1925)

With the passing of Mrs. Caroline Carter at her residence in Brighton another link with the early days is severed. She arrived in Australia with her family, the Hunts, in 1853. Her marriage with Mr. W. J. Carter linked her to one of the pioneers of this State, for his father had been one of the first settlers in the Wimmera district, the Rosebrook station (outside Horsham) having been well known in the early days. The family branched out, and the North Brighton station in the same district later belonged to them. In recent years the family has been connected with Hamilton, and it was from their property there, "Tarrington", that the funeral took place.
