Hallenstein, Michaelis (1832–1904)

The death of Mr. Michaelis Hallenstein, of Messrs. Michaelis Hallenstein and Company Proprietary Limited, which took place in England on the 18th inst., removes one of the earliest and most highly esteemed merchants of Melbourne. Born in 1834 he came to Melbourne in the early fifties, and shortly afterwards joined the firm [which bears his name]. For the past 30 years he has resided in England, with the exception of two brief visits to Melbourne in 1886 and 1894. Although he never occupied a public position in the community, he yet served it by his large-heartedness and generosity, and his death will be deeply regretted, especially by the older colonists. He leaves a widow and large family. Two of his sons reside in New Zealand, and a nephew Mr. Reuben Hallenstein is a member of the firm and a resident of Melbourne.
