Ella King (?–1935)

The Hon. Thomas King's widow, whose death in London is announced, will be remembered well in Adelaide many years ago as Miss Ella Kennedy, a talented pianist, and sister to the late Mr. J. A. Kennedy, formerly head master of Norwood public school. Mrs. John Drinkwater (Daisy Kennedy, the violinist) is a niece.

Mr. King was at one time one of the proprietors of The Advertiser. He was Commissioner for South Australia at the Colonial and Indian Exhibition in 1886, and died in London at the end of that year. He married twice, and his eldest daughter by the first marriage became the wife of Major Edward Stucley (attached in Adelaide to the staff of the 1st South Australian Regiment), who succeeded to a baronetcy. Lady Stucley died in 1922. Another daughter married Mr. Herbert Syme, of The Age, Melbourne.
