Andrew Seton Chisholm (1833–1905)

Mr. Andrew Seton Chisholm, son of the late Hon. Jas. Chisholm, died this (Saturday) morning at his residence, Lawrenny, Goulburn, at the age of 72 years. The cause of death was heart failure, following an attack of pneumonia. Mr. Chisholm, who was widely respected, was of a retiring disposition, but assisted in a very liberal manner movements for the benefit of the community. He took a keen interest in public matters, but played no prominent part in public life. The deceased gentleman had until late years carried on pastoral pursuits. In the early days he visited the Darling country, afterwards settling down at Winderradeen, Lake George. Subsequently he came to Goulburn for a time and then built Cardross, where he lived until a few years ago, when he went into residence at Lawrenny. He was a member of the Goulburn Local Land Board. The funeral will leave Lawrenny at 3.30 to-morrow (Sunday) afternoon for St. Saviour's Cathedral. After a short service the cortege will proceed to the new general cemetery. Bishop Barlow and Canon Kingsmill will officiate at the obsequies.
