Machattie, Richard Randolph (1843–1902)

Mr. [Richard] Randolph Machattie, eldest son of the late Dr. Machattie, died at "Hawthorne," the residence of his brother-in-law, (Hon. F. Jago Smith), on Saturday. For many years the late Mr. Machattie practised as a surveyor, but ultimately entered upon pastoral pursuits. He was well-known throughout the western district. At one time he was a member of Parliament, and also a member of the board in connection with the western lands of the State. He was a general favourite with those who knew him. He was 59 years of age. The funeral took place early yesterday morning, the remains being interred in the family vault in the Presbyterian cemetery.
