MacVean, John Hugh (1817–1894)

Widespread regret has been caused in the Albury district by the death this afternoon of Mr. John Hugh Macvean at his residence on the Hauteville Estate, Albury. The deceased gentleman was on Friday struck down by paralysis, and gradually sank. He was 77 years of age, and a native of Argylshire, Scotland. Mr Macvean was one of the oldest of Australian colonists, arriving in Victoria 55 years ago. He settled in the Western district, Geelong, and subsequently held the Mount Greenock property. About 20 years ago Mr Macvean came to Howlong, and later he bought Hauteville, where he has since resided. The deceased was well known in Victoria, having numerous friends in Melbourne. He was highly esteemed by all with whom he came in contact and leaves a family of eight children. The funeral takes place at Albury on Wednesday.
