from Pastoral Review, 16 November 1915

Mr. Charles Augustus Bruxner, of Sandilands Station, Tabulam, N.S.W., who died early last month suddenly in Sydney, was born at Binfield, Berks, England, in 1851. He came to Australia in 1876, and worked for a time on Gordon Brook Station on the Clarence River, N.S.W., under Messrs. Barnes and Smith. He bought Sandilands, on the Clarence, in 1879, and later Telemon, on the Logan, in Queensland, which he afterwards sold. He married the eldest daughter of the late Henry Barnes, of Dyraaba, and had four children, three of whom are living. He went in principally for breeding Hereford cattle, and was a keen admirer of Clydesdales, of which he built up a very fine stud. He was a splendid type of an English gentleman, hospitable, courteous, and kindly, virtues which he never failed to practise. His unostentatious acts of kindness in the neighbourhood of Sandilands endeared him to the populace, who in his death lose a wise counsellor and a friend. Deceased leaves a widow and three children, viz., Mr. Harry Bruxner (Beaudesert, Queensland), Captain M. F. Bruxner (now fighting at the front), and Miss Bruxner. He was buried at Sandilands, and his loss is sincerely felt by all those who knew him.
