Edward George (Ted) Hattersley (1876–1928)

News of the death of Mr. E. G. Hattersley in Sydney last week, following on an operation for appendicitis, was received with the deepest regret by his many friends on the Lower Clarence. Mr. Hatterslev, who was a son of Mr. W. Hattersley, formerly headmaster of different schools on the coast, was a native, of the Northern Rivers, and at the time of his death was 52 years of age. He leaves a widow and several children to mourn their loss. " Ted," as he was familiarly known about Maclean, was at an early age deposition clerk at the Water Police Court, Sydney, and he eventually came to Maclean, where he occupied the position of C.P.S., with great credit to himself and the department. During his residence in Maclean he sent in his resignation from the department and launched out in the auctioneering business, conducting weekly mart sales most successfully and disposing of several large farming properties in the district. At the time, a proprietary butter factory was being conducted at Maclean and "Ted," being a great believer in co-operation, made overtures to the dairymen to purchase the business and run it as a co-operative company. Negotiations for its purchase having failed, he called a large meeting of the dairymen of the Lower Clarence, and, mainly through his efforts, the Maclean Dairy Co-operative Coy was established and built its factory on the site of the Lower Clarence Dairy Commany's land below Maclean. The original building was replaced some two years ago by the present structure. Following on the introduction of local government. Mr. Hattersley was appointed by the department as clerk to the Harwood shire. Mr. Hattersley was afterwards prevailed upon to join the department, and accepted a position as C.P.S. in one of the south-western towns, but, in preferring a commercial life, he resigned from the department and joined his brother in Sydney in the agency business, eventually becoming a member of the Sydney Stock Exchange. He carried on the business of a broker up to the time of his death.
