Gore, Sir St George Ralph (1841–1887)

The death of Sir St. George Ralph Gore, Bart., is announced in another column. He was an old resident, and the news of his death at the comparatively early age of 46 will be learned with regret by a large circle of friends. He spent the early part of his life in pastoral pursuits, and about seventeen years ago he entered the public service, acting for some time as deposition clerk in the City Police Court. In 1880 he was appointed Immigration Agent, which office he held until his recent visit to Europe, when he was succeeded by Mr. W. E. Parry-Okeden. He was married in 1876 to the daughter of the Hon. E. I. C. Browne, M.L.C., and succeeded to the baronetcy held by his cousin the late Sir St. George Gore in 1878. The funeral will leave his late residence at the Albion at 2 o'clock this afternoon.
