Davies, Arthur Leaper (1878–1929)

The death occurred in Sydney on Friday from heart failure of Arthur Leaper Davies, of Yarrandi, Scone, aged 51 years.

A native of Sydney, he was a son of the late Mr. J. H. Davies, who was general manager of A. M and A Coy., and was educated at The King's School, Parramatta. Mr Davies followed pastoral pursuits, and in addition to being a noted horseman, was one of the State's most brilliant polo players. He played for many years for Scone, but since 1912 with the Sydney team, of which he was captain for the greater part of that time. He is survived by Mrs Davies and two sons. The funeral took place on Monday at the Church of England Cemetery, Waverley.
