Richmond, Mary (1854–1938)

The death has occurred at Kincairney, Murthly, Perthshire, in Scotland, of Mrs. Mary Richmond, widow of Mr. James Richmond, who was well-known in Australia as the owner of Haddon Rig. Mr. Richmond came to Australia from Scotland in 1852. He took up sheep farming, and at various time owned several well-known stations. He was best known as the owner of Haddon Rig, and with Mr. E. Scott as partner of Gingie, Walgett. In 1892, Mr. and Mrs. Richmond took their family to Scotland, and Mrs. Richmond never returned to Australia. At a later date Mr. Richmond purchased Kincairney, near Murthly, in Perthshire, where he died in 1923. This estate now goes to Major Richmond, of Mogilla (N.S.W.). Mrs. Richmond had five children.
