from Pastoral Review, 16 June 1923

The late Mr. William Hermiston, who died at his residence, Minto Park, Mansfield, Vic., on 4th May, was one of the most prominent figures amongst Lincoln breeders in Australia. Mr. Hermiston was born at Maiden Hill, in the Ballarat district, where his father, the late Mr. Andrew Hermiston, was one of the early settlers, and where some 61 years ago he founded a Lincoln flock. Mr. Hermiston, sen., afterwards purchased the Riversdale Estate, in the Alexander district, and later Minto Park. His son carried on the flock, sparing no expense to maintain its excellence, making numerous importations of high class rams.

Mr. Hermiston was of a bright, genial disposition, and his death will be deeply regretted by a large circle of friends. He leaves a widow, three sons and a daughter.
