Leftwich, Richard William (1833–1916)

The death has taken place of another old resident of Brisbane, in the person of Mr. R. W. [Richard William] Leftwich, at the ripe age of 83 years. The deceased came to Queensland in 1863. A home was made at Kangaroo Point, where the deceased gentleman resided almost up to the time of his death — 53 years. Until retiring some few years ago, Mr. Leftwich was engaged in the oyster industry, in which he was very successful.
