Quirk, Robert (1859–1936)

The death is announced of Mr. Robert Quirk, of Stott's Creek, a resident of the Tweed for 60 years. Mr. Quirk was born in the Isle of Man 77 years ago. He arrived in Australia when 17 years of age, and spent nearly all the remainder of his life in the Tweed River district. Most of his interests were centred in the Lower Tweed. He had lived at Tumbulgum, Cudgen, Terranora, and Stott's Creek. He owned a butchering business at Cudgen, and later engaged in cane growing at Terranora. Subsequently he became widely interested in dairying, and lived on property at Stott's Creek. He is survived by his widow (formerly Miss Mary McLean, of Tumbulgum), two daughters — Mesdames H. O. Fletcher (New Guinea) and C. Mann (Stott's Creek), and three sons Messrs. Richard, Robert, and John Quirk, of Stott's Creek.
