Morphett, Charles Edward (1852–1926)

News has been received of the death of Mr. Charles Edward Morphett, at Berwick (Victoria). Mr. Morphett was the third son of the late Sir John Morphett, and was born at Cummins, Morphettville, in 1852. He was educated at St. Peter's College, and after having spent a short time in a local bank he went north to Telowie Station. About 1887 he left South Australia, transferring to Thurulcoona Station, on the Warregal, Queensland. Mr. Morphett spent a number of years in pastoral pursuits in the northern State, and also visited New Zealand, Canada, and England. In more recent years he settled on a fruit farm near Berwick. He took part in the South African campaign about 1899, and was also on service throughout the Great War. His surviving brothers are Mr. J. C. Morphett, for many years Clerk of Parliament, and Mr. Hurtle Morphett.
