Congreve, Frederick Jacob (1837–1906)

Mr. Frederick Jacob Congreve died on Sunday, after an illness of some months. During the 55 years he spent in Australia, he was absent from South Australia for only a year at the New Zealand diggings, and about four years in Victoria. For some time he followed the scholastic profession, with some success to his pupils. Afterwards, for many years, he employed his time and money in prospecting for metals and minerals in the far north. He acted as correspondent for the Mining Journal, published in Melbourne and Sydney. He was a brother of the late Mrs Evans (Maud Jeanne Franc), and uncle to the late Mr. H. Congreve Evans, and the late Mr. W. J. Evans. He never married.
