Peden, Magnus Jackson (1834–1901)

from Daily Telegraph (Sydney)

On Friday afternoon Mr. Magnus Jackson Peden died suddenly at his office, No. 3 Gresham-street, Sydney. He had not been well for some time past, but was at work as usual up to the time of his death, which was due to heart failure. The deceased gentleman was born in Sydney in 1834, and was educated at the Sydney College (now the Sydney Grammar School). He formerly lived at Randwick, and was Mayor of that municipality. For many years he was a resident of the Bega district. He was a member of the Bega-Cooma Land Board, and coroner for the district. In the latter capacity he conducted the inquest on the victims of the wreck of the Ly-ee-moon at Green Cape. He was also Mayor of Bega, where at one time he owned considerable property. Mr. Peden was a public-spirited and liberal-minded man, and was widely known and respected.
