Daniel Hinchliffe (1876–1951)

The death occurred on Saturday, at the age of 75 years, of Mr. Daniel Hinchliffe, of Dean Street, North Rockhampton, formerly of Mt. Usher and Milman.

Born of Lancashire parents, Mr. Hinchliffe worked as a miner on the Dee Rush and was a carrier on contract to the Mt. Morgan Gold Mining Company in the early part of this century. Later he took up land in the Milman district, and retired to North Rockhampton in 1945. He was one of the district's most fearless and most competent horsemen; in his youth he rode his own horses in flat races and over hurdles. He generously supported every movement for the advancement of the district in which he lived and he and Mrs Hinchliffe extended to all the hospitality and open-heartedness that characterise country people.

He is survived by his wife, two daughters–Mrs. H. N. Euler (Brisbane) and M. T. Rosel (Ayr)–and four sons Messrs Frederick (Milman), William (Milman), Albert (Toowoomba) and Edgar (Innisfail). The funeral took place yesterday afternoon to the cemetery at North Rockhampton.
