Arthur Barton, n.d.

from Pastoral Review, 16 August 1916

A prominent grazier in the person of Mr. Arthur Stirling Barton, owner of Cuttabunda and Moorandah stations in the Walgett district, died yesterday, after a short illness from hemorrhage of the brain, at his residence at Homebush, in his 60th year. The late Mr. Barton, who was one of the best known men on the land in the north western district, and a familiar figure in the city, was a director of Winchombe Carson Ltd and of the Australian Bank of Commerce. He was the youngest son of the late Mr Robert Johnson Barton, of Boree station, near Molong. His only surviving brother is Robert Darvall Barton, late owner of Headingly station, in the north west corner of Queensland, and now a resident of Sydney. Another brother was the late Mr. C. H. Barton, who represented the Macquarie seat in the Legislative Assembly for some time.

Deceased was formally owner of Polly Brewan station in the Walgett district, and of another station on the Bogan. He was a member of the council of the Pastoralists' Union and a vice-president of the Sheepbreeders' Association, and also at one time occupied a seat on Walgett Land Board. His wife was the eldest daughter of the late Mr. Frank Smith of Cumboogal, Dubbo, and a family of four sons and four daughters survive him. Two of the sons are on active service, and a third is about to enlist. One of the daughters is married to Mr. Hugh Taylor, of Gunnoe, near Wellington.

The internment will take place this afternoon at the Field of Mars Cemetery, where two of Mr. Barton’s brothers lie buried.
