Macarthur, Hannibal Hawkins (1788–1861)

Hannibal Macarthur, n.d.

Hannibal Macarthur, n.d.

State Library of Queensland, 196672

The late Hannibal Hawkins Macarthur—The last mail brought intelligence of the death of this much respected and venerable colonist. The public of New South Wales will devoutly sympathise with the family of the deceased gentleman. He had arrived, however, at the ripe old age of seventy-five, and his numerous children and friends have the satisfaction of looking back upon a blameless and religious life, chequered, indeed, by trial and difficulty, but never tarnished or dishonoured. Mr. Macarthur was for many years a nominee member under the old Council, and was returned afterwards for Parramatta when the Legislative Council became partly elective. The remains of Mr. Macarthur were deposited in the Norwood Cemetery, followed by Major-General Macarthur, Mr. James Macarthur, Mr. Patrick Leslie, &c.
