Sir Herbert Ramsay, n.d.

Sir Herbert Ramsay, n.d.

from Pastoral Review, 16 August 1924

Sir Herbert Ramsay, Bart., as stated in our June issue, died in Orange, N.S.W., at the end of May after a long illness. Only 56 when he died, he came to Australia when 21 after being educated at Cheltenham College, England. He went to Oondooroo, Winton, Queensland, his cousin's property, and later managed Cameron Downs, Hughenden, for Mr. Andrew Crombie.

For some years he was in the stock and station agency business at Winton, and in 1910 joined the service of the New Zealand Loan and Mercantile Agency Company Limited as manager of their stock and station department in Sydney. Nine years later, however, he retired from the service owing to ill-health.

The late Sir Herbert Ramsay possessed a charming personality, and had a wide knowledge of pastoral affairs, particularly in Queensland, where, as already indicated, he had spent the greater part of his life. He was a member of the A.J.C. and the Warrigal Club, Sydney, and was a very keen sport and a great whip.
