Henry Bingham Broughton (1845–1902)

from Sydney Morning Herald

The late Henry Bingham Broughton, J.P., was a descendant of two of the oldest families in the Commonwealth, his grandfather, William Broughton, having been Assistant Commissary-General in the early days of the State, whilst his maternal grandfather, Henry Bingham, was a Crown Lands Commissioner in the forties. Mr. Broughton was for many years a grazier in the Temora and Hillston districts, and more recently an auctioneer in Hay, but came to Sydney to reside last year when he joined the Farmers and Settlers' Association as stock salesman. The deceased gentleman was a celebrated rough-rider in younger days, having been bred and born in the Tumut district, close to the source of the Snowy River, made famous by "Banjo" Paterson. Mr Broughton was also considered an excellent judge of horseflesh, and has recently acted in that capacity at country shows in the Southern districts. The deceased gentleman leaves a widow, six sons, and three daughters, his two oldest sons being managers of Goolhi and Welbon stations in the north-western districts. The funeral took place on Thursday afternoon at St. Thomas' cemetery, North Sydney, the Rev. G. North Ash, M.A., conducting the service. Amongst those present at the graveside were the following–Messrs. A. R., T. R. , and D. R. Broughton (sons), W. G. Acocks (son-in-law), G. L. Dickson, G. C. Addison (brothers-in-law), Frank S. Smith, Samuel Thompson, T. J. Thompson, James Garland, James Wilshire, T. J. Campbell (manager), and T. C. Worboys (director, Farmers and Settlers' Association), G. and R., Andrew, Harold and L. Thompson, H. Wilshire, H. S. Badgery (representing Homebush buyers and sellers), E. Broughton, P. Ford, J. Henry, J. McKenzie, George Thompson, E. O. Hanson, and the office staff of the Farmers and Settlers' Association. Wreaths and crosses were sent by the F. and S. Association, Mr. and Mrs G. L. Dickson, Mr. and Mrs G. C. Addison, Mr. and Mrs. T. J. Thompson, Miss F. Broughton, Mrs. E. Lloyd-Jones, Miss V. Dickson, Miss Rees-Jones, and Miss Gurning.
