Fisher, Donelly (1850–1919)

Mr. Donnelly Fisher, a well-known Sydney solicitor, died at his residence, Arthursleigh, North Sydney, yesterday. He was in his 70th year, and had been in failing health for some time. Mr Fisher was senior partner in the firm of Fisher and Macansh, of George and King streets. He was a grandson of W. C. Wentworth, his father, Mr. T. J. Fisher, a Sydney barrister, having married Thomasine Wentworth, daughter of the famous statesman.

Born near Sydney, the late Mr. Fisher received part of his education in England, and completed it at Sydney University, where he graduated M.A. He was admitted a solicitor in 1875, and had since practised continuously in Sydney. He was a prominent Freemason, being a past grand master, and acted as representative of the New Zealand body here.

Mr. Fisher was a widower, his wife having died some years ago. He is survived by two sons and one daughter—Mr. Arthur Fisher, a member of the firm of Fisher and Macansh, Mr. Fisher, licensed surveyor, of Sydney, and Mrs. G. J. Living, of Melbourne. The funeral will take place to-morrow.
