Edward Cuddiford (1858–1951)

The death occurred in Woodend, Vic., on 29th March of Mr. Edward Cuddiford at the advanced age of 93.

The late Mr. Cuddiford was well known in Riverina, having started work as a lad with the late Robert Rand on Mohonga Station, and later on he managed both Mohonga and Urangeline Stations, which in those days were very extensive areas. He was with the Mohonga Pastoral Company until he retired in 1924, when he went to Albury to live.

Mr. Cuddiford was a keen judge of stock, especially Merinos, and his knowledge was much sought after. He enjoyed remarkably good health through his long life and he was ill for only two days prior to his death, which occurred when he was on a visit to his daughter, Mrs. C. Took, of Redesdale, Victoria. He married Mary Jane Steer, of Mohonga Park, and she predeceased him by ten years. He had three sons and one daughter, the sons being Ralph (1st A.I.F.), deceased; Norman, manager of the Bank of New South Wales, Richmond, N.S.W.; and Eddie (H. V. McKay's), Sunshine, Vic.
