Lucas, Edward (1840–1903)

The funeral of the late Mr. Edward Lucas was largely attended. The deceased was the son of the late Mr. George Lucas, one of the early Tasmanian pioneers, and was born at Kelton, near Longford, in 1840. All his life was spent in this district. He was a first-class farmer, and in following this pursuit was energetic and persevering, by this means gaining a well earned competence. He retired from active life some time ago, and spent his remaining days at Longford. He was suffering for some years from a distressing illness, and during the course of it showed great patience and fortitude. As a neighbour he was thoroughly upright and honest in all things; as a friend he was true; and it is no form of words to say he was respected by all who knew him for his many excellent qualities. The remains were interred in the Christ Church Cemetery by the side of his wife, who predeceased him some three years ago.
