Hamlyn Lavicount (Lavi) Harris (1845–1925)

A sturdy old pioneer of New South Wales passed away with the death of Mr. Hamlyn Lavicount Harris on July 5, at Werinatong Station, Tumut, N.S.W. The late Mr. Hamlyn Harris was approaching his 80th year when he died. He was the only surviving son of General Lavicount Harris (India), and came to New South Wales in early life, taking up jackerooing on Mr. Henry Whitty's station Tarramia, N.S.W., who later married Mr. Harris's sister. Subsequently Mr. Edward Brown, who also married into the Harris family, and who was a brother of Mr. Nugent Wade-Brown, of Ban Ban, Queensland, took up a station conjointly with Mr. Harris near Tumut. The late Mr. Harris's youngest daughter is the wife of Dr. Hamlyn-Harris, D.Sc. who is at present senior science master at the Southport High School.
