King, Phillip Parker Macarthur (1844–1902)

A telegram received in Sydney on Friday conveyed the news of the death of Mr. Phillip Parker Macarthur King, at Nundle. He had been missing since Wednesday. Search having been made his horse, saddle, and bridle were found, and subsequently the body was found. The deceased gentleman went from his home on Wednesday last to look for a lost horse. As he did not return a search was organised and Mr. King's horse, with saddle and bridle, was found some little time before the searchers discovered the body. Mr. King had not been very well of late, and had been under medical treatment. He was in the Nundle district looking for country for his sheep. The deceased, who leaves a widow, but no family, was 57 years of age and a son of Mr. P. G. King, M.L.C., and Mr. B G. King, of Goonoo Goonoo and Mr. J. L. King, (D.S.M.). of Sydney, are brothers of the deceased.
