from Pastoral Review, 16 September 1919

Mr. Arthur Nicholas Hughes, whose death in Adelaide we referred to last month, was a member of one of the best-known families of pastoralists in the Commonwealth. He was the second son of the late Mr. Herbert Bristow Hughes, who, at the time of his death, in 1892, was the owner of three well-known runs—Booyoolee (South Australia), Kinchega (New South Wales), and Nocatunga (Queensland). Mr. A. N. Hughes was born at Booyoolee, Gladstone, on 4th November, 1856, and was therefore in his sixty-third year. He received his early education at St. Peter's College, Adelaide, and subsequently studied at Malvern College, England, after which he spent a couple of years in France studying the wool industry. Since the death of Mr. H. B. Hughes, the conduct of his pastoral properties has been carried on by his trustees for the benefit of the family, and the personal management of the stations was undertaken by his six sons. Mr. A. N. Hughes spent many years among the cattle on Nocatunga, but in more recent years took up his residence at Kinchega. In 1913 he married Miss Stevenson, of Port Lincoln, S.A., who survives him. He took no active part in public life, being of a somewhat retiring disposition, but his genial personality won him a large circle of friends.
