Midgley Hall (1839–1896)

A Melbourne paper remarks:—"Mr. Midgley Hall, an old and well-known highly-respected citizen, died at his residence, South-terrace, Clifton Hill, on October 25, after a protracted illness. His only daughter is Mrs. Harold Petherick, of Western Australia. The deceased gentleman was extensively connected with station life, especially as regards wool-clipping scouring, and machining contracts in Victoria and New South Wales. Mr. Midgley Hall retired from active business some years ago. He was of estimable personality, and, though he never aspired to public positions, he was always to the front in social and public movements."
