Levey, Isaac (1798–1860)

Our obituary yesterday contained the name of an old and much respected colonist, Mr. Isaac Levey. Mr. Levey arrived in Sydney about twenty-six years ago, shortly after the death of his brother Solomon; who had amassed a great amount of property, a portion of which the deceased inherited. For many years Mr. Levey carried on a general importing business in George-street, and the profits he thereby acquired he invested in the erection of large and handsome buildings, many of which–such as those in Wynyard-square–are ornaments to our principal streets. Mr. Levey was a liberal contributor to the various charitable institutions of the city, and his death will be very generally lamented. The deceased was in his sixty-second year.
