Rowe, George Taylor (1822–1859)

from Bell's Life in Sydney

The melancholy loss sustained by the colonial turf by the decease of the late lamented Mr G. T. [George Taylor] Rowe, has cast a perceptible gloom over the proceedings of the week. The prominent position so so long occupied by the deceased gentleman in connection with the interests of horse-breeding and racing in New South Wales—a position which has been throughout characterized by an ardent and patriotic desire to promote the improvement of that noble animal, the horse, will occasion his loss to be deeply deplored, and endear his memory to every true sportsman throughout the Australian colonies. Mr Rowe made a host of friends on his two late visits to the capital of Victoria, by his unassuming and amiable qualities, and we feel assured that his decease will be unfeignedly regretted by a numerous circle in Melbourne. We were personally indebted to Mr Rowe for many acts of courtesy, and assistance on occasions, in our professional capacity, and most sincerely do we sympathize with his family in their irreparable bereavement.
