George Boulton (1819–1891)

We (Toowoomba Chronicle) regret to have to record the death of Mr. George Boulton, of Tipton, Cecil Plains, at the age of seventy-two. Mr. Boulton was one of the oldest residents of this district, having arrived here with his parents and brothers and sisters when but a child, and there were few better known men in Queensland. For over thirty years he was manager of the Hon. James Taylor's Cecil Plains Estate, in which capacity he was known as a generous host and patron of manly sport. For the last ten years, however, delicate health has kept him to his home at Tipton. The deceased gentleman was very generally esteemed for his many excellent qualities, and his death is widely regretted.
