Mr. Cecil Trevor Cooke, third son of the late Mr. Cecil Pybus Cooke, of Lake Condah and brother of Mr. Samuel Winter Cooke, of Murndal, and Mr. Herbert Cooke, ex-MHR, died at South Yarra. Born at Lake Condah in 1850, Mr. Cooke was educated at a private school in England, and later at Emmanuel College, Cambridge. He returned to Australia in 1873, and for a time managed his father’s property. Later he held property in New Zealand, and was also for a time engaged in pastoral enterprises in New Mexico and Queensland. From 1883 to 1902, he managed Murndal for his brother. In later years he bought the Clondrisse estate, near Flinders, where he resided until 1917, and then moved to Abshot estate near Korumburra. Mr. Cooke was noted as a good sportsman and a man of stirling and upright character. He married in 1888 the eldest daughter of the late Mr. William Lempriere, of Green meadows, Balaclava. He leaves a widow, three sons, of whom Captain William Cooke is the eldest, and two married daughters. The funeral will be at Murndal on Friday.
