Eggleston, John Waterhouse (1847–1912)

Mr. John W. [Waterhouse] Eggleston, son of the Rev. John Eggleston, who was a prominent Wesleyan minister in Adelaide many years ago, died suddenly in Melbourne on Thursday. A few weeks ago Mr. Eggleston, while crossing the garden at his house, slipped and fell, sustaining a fractured kneecap, but no serious results were anticipated. Mr. Eggleston was born in Hobart, and after graduating at the Melbourne University was admitted to the bar, and had practised as a solicitor for over 40 years. Mr. Eggleston, who was 61 years of age, left a widow and three sons, two of whom are partners in the firm of Eggleston & Eggleston, Bank-place, off Collins-street. Another son, Mr. Alexander Eggleston, is an architect.
