Frederick Faithfull Gibson (1837–1913)

Mr Frederick Faithfull Gibson, the oldest and a very highly respected and esteemed pastoralist in the Goulburn district, met with a fall on the banks of the Mulwaree Creek, near his residence at Tirranna early on Wednesday morning, and was drowned in about two feet of water. He had been in failing health for some months although he had been able to get about at home.

The late Mr. Gibson was the son of the late Dr. Gibson, and was born at Tirranna about 76 years ago. He resided here all his married life, and married Miss Mary Cunningham (daughter of the late Mr. Andrew Cunninghamson, of Lanyon), who survives him. He had no family. He leaves one brother—Mr. Thomas J. F. Gibson, of Burrumbuttock, Albury, and one sister, Mrs. R. H. Bloomfield, of Sydney. He was a noted breeder of stock, and was very successful as an exhibitor at various agricultural shows. He was also a keen sportsman, and was patron of the Tirranna Race Club, whose course is situated on his property. In addition to Tirranna, he owned Caragabal station on the Bland, the wool from which always fetched high prices on the Sydney and London markets.
