Kelly, Alfred Fetherstonhaugh (1846–1915)

Alfred Fetherstonhaugh Kelly, a notice of whose death appeared in the December issue, was a well-known Victorian pastoralist, though at one time, many years ago, he and his brother Charles owned Roto Station, in New South Wales. He was a good sportsman, and a true Irish gentleman of the old school—he might have stepped out of one of Lever's novels—and indeed Lever and the Kellys hailed from the same county, Westmeath. Alfred Kelly was a good judge of horses, and cattle, and a first-class horseman. He acted many times as judge at Melbourne and Bendigo shows, and was a keen supporter of the Bendigo Hunt Club.

At one time he owned Terrick West, not far from Bendigo, but of late years and up till the time of his death lived in the Western District of Victoria, at Barwonleigh, which he was managing for his father-in-law, the late Dr. H. L. Atkinson.
