Jamison, William Henry (1831–1891)

Many of our readers will have received the news of the death of Mr. William H. Jamison. J.P, which took place on Monday last at Rylstone, near which place he died, with deep regret. It seems Mr. Jamison ran a piece of wire into his foot some time ago and it became so bad that amputation of the member became necessary, and after much suffering he succumbed to the effects of the operation. Mr. Jamison was for many years an active Magistrate of this district and took great interest in all public matters—among others that of the volunteer movement in this town. He married a Miss McLean of Capertee and leaves a widow and several children. His brother, the late Mr. Robert Jamison, was for some years Member for the Nepean.
