Arthur St. Aubyn Barrett-Lennard (1876–1954)

Mr. Arthur St. Aubyn Barrett-Lennard, a member of one of the oldest families in Western Australia, died early last month at the age of 78. A son of the late Mr. Edward Graham Barrett-Lennard, the deceased was educated at the Perth High School, and then worked on his father's property, St. Leonards, on the Middle Swan. As a young man he became interested in Sturt Meadows Station in the Eastern Goldfields district, in which he was associated with the late Mr. H. Manuel, but later disposed of his interest in this property in order to join his brother, Mr. J. E Barrett-Lennard in acquiring Red Hill Station. The brothers then bought Boolaloo from the late Mr. Thomas Frederick de Pledge in 1909, and when the partnership was dissolved, Mr. Arthur St. A. Barrett-Lennard retained this property, and his brother became sole owner of Red Hill. In 1925 he formed the Boolaloo Pastoral Company Ltd., which acquired Nanutarra and Mt. Stuart Stations in 1937. He was still governing director of the company at the time of his death. The late Mr. Barrett-Lennard married a daughter of Mr. Sam Viveash, of Wexcombe, Swan District. She predeceased him several years ago, but he is survived by three sons and one daughter.
