Henry King Darlot (1822–1883)

from Argus

The death is announced of Mr Henry Darlot one of the oldest colonists of Victoria. Mr Darlot came out to Sydney at a very early date and was a fellow passenger of the late Sir Redmond Barry. He was one of the first to come overland from Sydney to Victoria. In this colony he was engaged in pastoral pursuits in the Wimmera district and elsewhere and afterwards owned a station in Western Australia in conjunction with Mr David Moore. On selling his interest in this he recently purchased a station in Western Australia, on which he placed his sons. Mr Darlot had been unwell for some time but his friends did not think his illness would so soon end fatally. He leaves a family of three sons and one daughter.
