MacVean, Hugh (1820–1878)

Intelligence reached Camperdown early yesterday morning of the sudden death of Hugh Macvean, Esq., of Strathvean-Cressy, which was received by everyone who heard it with expressions of the deepest regret. The intelligence was brought by Mr. Michael Cahill, of Fox how, who reported that Mr. Macvean's son had been suddenly called out of the coursing field on account of this sad occurrence, and it is confirmed by the obituary notice sent for insertion in another column. Mr. Macvean was, we understand, drafting sheep in the neighborhood of his residence, when he was suddenly seized with syncope, and expired before medical aid could be procured. Deceased leaves a wife and six children, we believe, by whom his loss will be keenly felt and severely deplored. He had long been a resident in this district, and was greatly respected by all who knew him.
