Stafford Carlos Currie (1876–1939)

Mr. Stafford Carlos Currie, once one of the best-known sheepmen in Western Australia, died at his home in Jackson street, Toorak, on Monday. He was aged 63 years, and had suffered from ill-health for a number of years before his death.

The son of the late Mr. George Currie, of Puckawidgee, New South Wales, Mr. Stafford Currie was educated at Melbourne Grammar and in New South Wales, but in 1906 he went to Western Australia, where he managed a series of large sheep stations with conspicuous success. Among them were Brick House and Wandagee, two of the most important properties in the Gascoyne district.

Ill-health caused his retirement from active station work in 1930. He is survived by a widow and a son.

The funeral, which took place at the Springvale Crematorium, was attended by many West Australians.
