Charles Hall (1850–1919)

One of the pioneer pastoralists of South Australia passed away on 21st August, in the person of Mr. Charles Hall, of Glenelg, and formerly of Eurelia, and owner of Carunna, Hookina, and Hurtle Grove Stations. Mr. Hall was born at Strathalbyn 69 years ago, and was a son of the late Mr. Stephen Hall. He started life as a coachdriver, but in the early seventies commenced farming on the Appila Plain, where after two or three adverse seasons fortune smiled on him, and he was able to sell out at a profit. He then took up land at Eurelia, and later extended operations by purchasing Carunna Station, which practically surrounds the famous Iron Knob, south-west of Port Augusta. Despite prognostications to the contrary, he made a success of this property, and in the course of years effected great improvements, and increased the carrying capacity of the holding enormously. On several occasions Carunna wool topped the market in Adelaide.
