Macinnes, Allan A. (1857–1916)

By the death of Mr. Allan A. MacInnes on 11th November at the age of fifty-nine, at his brother's residence in Melbourne, one has been removed who had spent many years at pastoral work in New South Wales. Mr. MacInnes first managed Woodlands Station for Messrs. Moss and Fergie, near Dandaloo, going there in 1881. Subsequently he managed Terrangan and Bokenore, in the Dubbo district for the Bank of New South Wales, and later Bolong and Kenyu, in the Burrowa district, also for the bank. Until some three years ago he managed North Whoey and Euabalong for Mr. A. B. Triggs.

His literary bent of mind moved him to write a sporting story, Straight as a Line, which had a good circulation in New South Wales and Victoria, and he was an occasional contributor as well to the Review. Mr. MacInnes combined a thorough practical knowledge of land and stock with literary gifts of no mean order. A favourite pastime with him was the painting of horses and dogs from life. His wife was a daughter of the late Rev. Dr. Laing, of Muswellbrook.
