Fuller, William Frederick (1864–1934)

from Sydney Morning Herald

Mr William Frederick Fuller, a brother of Sir George Fuller, third son of the late Mr G. L. Fuller, of Dunmore, Illawarra and for many years a leading resident of the South Coast district of New South Wales, died yesterday at his residence, New South Head-road, Rose Bay, aged 70 years. For more than a quarter of a century, Mr Fuller managed the blue metal quarries at Long Point, Shellharbour which were jointly owned by himself and his father. The quarries were amongst the biggest in operation on the South Coast, the blue metal being shipped to Sydney by the steamer Dunmore which was of the same ownership. Most of the stone was purchased by metropolitan municipal councils for road construction. The property managed by Mr Fuller was of considerable extent, exceeding 2000 acres but only a portion of it was used for quarrying purposes, the remainder being leased to tenant farmers for dairying. For the past five or six years, Mr Fuller had lived in Sydney. He is survived by Mrs Fuller and a daughter.
