John Chute Ellis, the eldest son of the late John Ellis, M.L.C., the original owner of Buckland Park, South Australia, died after a short illness at Hobart, Tas., on 8th August.

He was born 79 years ago at Adelaide, S.A., and was educated at the Charterhouse School, London. He then joined the army, holding a commission in the 13th Hussars, and on retiring therefrom with Captain's rank, joined his brother, the late T. C. Ellis, at Benara, Mt. Gambier, S.A., for a few years.

Mr. J. C. Ellis then went to New Zealand and purchased Merrivale Station, Southland, where he lived for many years. He also was interested in Linwood, Blackwater, and other properties in Southland, and on realising his interests there lived at Hobart, Tasmania, in which State he purchased Parknook Estate, Cressy.

The late Mr. Ellis leaves a widow and two daughters, Mrs. A. Butler, of Joss, Nigeria, and Miss Winifred J. C. Ellis.
