King, Georgina (1845–1932)

Miss Georgina King, F.R.A.S.A., who died at her residence, Wyungah, Darling Point, was the second daughter of the late Rev. George King, LL.D., was born at Fremantle (W.A.) in 1845, and arrived at Sydney with her parents in 1849. She was interested in scientific affairs, chiefly geology and anthropology, and was the author of several pamphlets, including: "The Mineral Wealth of New South Wales," "The Discovery of Gold, and How it was Found," "Two Stone Ages, Australia," and "The Antiquity of the Australian Aborigines." Most of the papers have appeared in the "Sydney Morning Herald" at various times. Miss King was also helpful to patriotic and charitable institutions in whose welfare she was interested.
