Darlot, James Monckton (1811–1903)

Our obituary columns this morning contain the announcement of the death of Mr. James Monckton Darlot in his 92nd year. The deceased gentleman was one of the pioneer settlers, having arrived in Sydney in 1834 in the barque Guardian. In 1837 he brought cattle overland to Portland Bay, and in 1838 came to Melbourne. Although he had attained an advanced age, he was active till a few days ago, and retained his mental faculties bright and clear to the last. In 1853 he married Christian, the younger daughter of the late Judge Firebrace, of Demerara, British Guiana, by whom he had eight children, four of whom survive.
