George Currie (1864–1940)

Mr George Currie, who died at his home in Nyora Street, Killara, aged 77, spent his youth on his father’s stations at Kaarimba, near Numurka, and Puckawidgee, Deniliquin. He followed pastoral pursuits on Evesham and Terrick stations, in Queensland, and was manager of Mount Wood at Milparinka, during the call-out of 1893. At that time, although he was a conservative, he was very much opposed to reducing the rate per hundred for shearing that ruled.

Mr. Currie bought Strathallyn, Naromine, in 1894. He was engaged in stud and flock sheep breeding there until 1923, when the stud and property were sold. He was a member of the New South Wales Club, the Australian Jockey Club, and the Killara Bowling Club. Mrs. Curries predeceased him, and he is survived by four sons and two daughters.
