Lyne, Henry Richard (1819–1875)

Our obituary contains the name of Mr Henry Lyne, one of those colonists who have done good service to Tasmania in its gradual settlement and by developing its agricultural resources, and training their sons to the like pursuits: A short time ago the deceased was seized with an apoplectic stroke, from which we understand he partially recovered. He removed from Coomb End, Swanport, the district in which his brothers, Messrs. John and William Lyne, are prominent residents, and came to reside in Lyttleton-street, Launceston. About a fortnight ago Mr Lyne had suffered another attack of apoplexy, which baffled the skill of the principal members of the faculty here, and he died on Tuesday, aged 61, in the presence of several members of his family, who had hastened to town on learning his dangerous condition. Deceased had been a magistrate of the territory since December, 1866, and was included in the new Commission of the Peace issued in March last.
