Johnston, George (1764–1823)

On Sunday night last, at his seat at Annandale, George Johnston; Esq. after a severe but rather short indisposition. This Gentlemen is well remembered by the oldest inhabitant, and very much respected in private life. As Lieutenant Colonel of the 102d Regiment (New South Wales Corps) his name will be handed down to posterity, blended with that of Australia; having assumed the reigns of administration, for a short interval, during the memorable colonial interregnum. A large family remain to deplore a fond Parent's deprivation.
