Hart, John (1855–1928)

from Gloucester Advocate (NSW)

The death has occurred of Mr. John Hart, the well-known jeweller, in a private hospital in Sydney. The late Mr. Hart was well-known in the Maitland district. His jewellery business has been widely known throughout the North for years, and is one of the oldest established in Maitland. The business, where it now stands, was formerly occupied by his father, and uncle, the late Mr. Benjamin Hart, who carried on a drapery and hatters' establishment. He attended the Maitland Boys' High School, and subsequently served his time as a watch maker with the late Mr. Fred Griffith, of West Maitland. Mr. Hart took a keen interest in sport, and was a breeder of blood stock. Some of his racehorses turned out good performers. He married a daughter of the late Mr. Morris Cohen, of the firm of David Cohen and Co. The interment was made in the Jewish portion of the Rookwood cemetery.
