Mr. William C.V. Gibbes, who died at the Commercial Hotel, Parramatta, on Friday, was at one time accountant in the Master in Equity's office. He was the grandson of Colonel Gibbes, who for many years was Collector of Customs in Sydney, and who had commanded of the "light bobs" of the old 40th at the attack on Monte Video in 1807. On the maternal side he was the grandson of Sir John Jamison of "Regentville", near Penrith, a navy surgeon who had served under Nelson at Trafalgar, and in this colony during the "twenties" took a leading part (second only to that taken by Wentworth) in the agitation for constitutional government.
