Hume, Andrew Hamilton (1832–1911)

Andrew Hume, n.d.

Andrew Hume, n.d.

from Pastoral Review, 13 April 1911

Mr. Andrew Hamilton Hume, one of the pioneers of the Yass and Burrowa districts of New South Wales, died last month at his residence, near Sydney, at the age of seventy-nine years. He was the eldest son of Francis Rawdon Hume, of Castlestead, Burrowa, and nephew of the explorer Hamilton Hume. He was educated at The King's School, Parramatta, at the time Mr. Forrest was headmaster. For many years he managed Humewood Estate for his uncle, Hamilton Hume. Subsequently he lived at Everton, Rye Park, and owned Mandemah West Station. He was the first man to introduce fine-wool sheep into the Yass and Burrowa districts—this was after the sheep scab outbreak had been stamped out. He was a very popular man, and one who did a good deal for the advancement of his district.
