Hobbs, John (1838–1919)

The death occurred yesterday of Mr. John Hobbs, at his residence 171 Rocket-street, Bathurst. The late Mr. Hobbs was widely known throughout the district, being one of the pioneer teamsters. Before the days of the railways, he was a prominent teamster on the Bathurst-Sydney route and amongst his cargo on one occasion were the five bells which still peal forth from All Saints' Cathedral tower. The remains will be interred in the Church of England Cemetery, Kelso, beside those of his wife, who recently predeceased him.
