Headlam, Robert (1846–1915)

Robert Headlam, n.d.

Robert Headlam, n.d.

from Pastoral Review, 16 February 1916

Reference was made in our personal notes last month to the death of Mr. Robert Headlam, of Vaucluse, Conara, Tasmania. He was one of the best-known pastoralists in the Midlands of that State, having owned the estates of Vaucluse and Glen Esk for nearly half a century. A member of one of the pioneer families, he was the third son of the late Mr. Charles Headlam of Eggleston, Macquarie, who was said to have been at one time the largest landholder in Tasmania, and one of the earliest settlers in the Macquarie district.

The late Mr. Robert Headlam was greatly beloved by all classes of the community, and leaves a wife and grown-up family. Two of his sons, Clarence and Guy, are serving abroad with the Australian Expeditionary Forces.
