Gordon, Patrick Robertson (1834–1915)

Patrick Gordon, n.d.

Patrick Gordon, n.d.

from Pastoral Review, 16 October 1915

The late Mr. Patrick Robertson Gordon, a notice of whose death appeared in the Review last month, was for many years Chief Inspector of Stock in Queensland. He was a thorough gentleman of the old school, and many friends learnt with the deepest regret of his death, which occurred at the good old age of eighty-five years.

His work in connection with the Queensland Brands Act stands alone as a work of art which has no equal in Australia, and should perpetuate his memory for all time. He had a vast and varied experience in all matters pertaining to stock. Right back in the fifties, he was manager and part owner of a station on the Ovens River called Peechelba, in Victoria, a property which many years afterwards became famous as the place where the bushranger Morgan met his death. In those days, of course, the late Mr. Gordon was quite a young man, and was a good sport, racing and riding his own horses at the then small township of Wangaratta, being considered one of the best horsemen in the district. For many years Mr. Gordon was a contributor on stock matters to the columns of the Review, and doubtless many of his articles will be remembered by our readers.
