Neate, Ambrose Charles (1843–1923)

The death occurred on Wednesday of last week, at his residence, Wheatland road, East Malvern, of Mr. Ambrose Charles Neate, a colonist of 71 years. Until his retirement in 1903, he had long service with the office of the Melbourne Botanic Gardens, being associated there for fourteen years with the late Baron von Mueller, and for 32 years as secretary during the directorship of the late Mr. W. R. Guilfoyle, in whose absence on holiday abroad for twelve months he was appointed acting curator. His interest in botanic matters and early Melbourne history continued to the end. Mr. Neate, who was in his 81st year, leaves a widow and grown-up family.
