Laverack, John Boulton (1816–1892)

On Wednesday week last, an old Windsor resident, in the person of John Boulton Laverack, passed away in Sydney, at the age of 75 years. Mr. Laverack was a native of Hull, England, and came out to this country many years ago. He resided a number of years in Windsor, and at one time occupied the position of Superintendent at the Benevolent Asylum. He left Windsor about 24 years ago for Sydney, where he resided up to the time of his death. He was for several years auctioneer at Alexander Moore and Co's., Furniture Bazaar. Deceased's remain were conveyed by train on Friday morning, to Windsor, and were met at the Station by Mr. R. W. Dunstan, undertaker, a relation of the deceased, and conveyed to the Church of England Cemetery. Owing to the inclemency of the weather there was not a large funeral procession. The Burial Service, owing to the rain, was conducted by the Rev. G. D'Arcy-Irvine in the Church. Several members of the deceased's family, sons, and sons-in-law, were present. Many nice wreaths were laid on the coffin. Deceased used frequently visit his step-son, Mr. Dunstan, at Windsor, and was here about a month ago. Death was due to heart disease.
