Henry (Harry) Campbell (?–1926)

Henry Campbell, n.d

Henry Campbell, n.d

from Pastoral Review, 15 January 1927

Another one of the writer's pastoral friends, Henry Campbell, has coiled up his ropes, dying at Keston, Kirribilli, Sydney, last month. He was the eldest son of the late Mr. Hugh Campbell, of Belaringar Station, Nevertire, N.S.W., and upon the completion of his education adopted the pastoral life as his profession. Urawilkie Station, in the Coonamble district, N.S.W., was one of his stations, and there he resided for many years. Later on he acquired Myall Plains, in southern Queensland, but owing to ill-health, gave up active pastoral work some few years ago.

A man of retiring disposition, he dreaded publicity, but he was sincerity personified and was ever thinking of the welfare of others. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him.

Mr. Jack Campbell, of Goorianawa; Mr. Hugh Campbell, of Urawilkie; Dr. A. Campbell, of Ellerslie; and Mr. Robert Campbell, of Bowral, are brothers, while there are also five sisters, Miss Jean Campbell, Mrs. C. Luscombe Newman, Mrs. Angus Campbell, Mrs. J. B. Jaquet, and Mrs. George Killen.
