Hayley, Edmund Walter (1826–1894)

The demise of Edmund Walter Scott Hayley was announced last week in Sydney. For years he was manager of the C.S.R. Co's. mill at Southgate, and subsequently at Chatsworth, and as such was much respected by the constituents of the Company. Mr. Hayley did much to establish the industry of sugar-growing on the river. When he arrived on the Clarence it was in its infancy, and as might be imagined, no small responsibility devolved on the manager towards promoting an industry that has since risen to so great importance. Mr. Hayley's name will ever be identified with the cane-growing on the Clarence, and he was well-known to all the old planters. When the Chatsworth mill was removed, he left the Company's service and retired into private life.
