Alexander Landale (?–1911)

Mr. Alexander Landale, who was to represent the Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria at the Norwich Show, had to run to catch a special train to Norwich, and shortly after he was taken ill in the train and expired.

The Agricultural Conference yesterday passed a resolution condoling with  the relatives of the deceased.

Our Melbourne correspondent telegraphed last, night:-Widespread regret will be expressed at the news of Mr. Landale's death. He went to England about the end of April with Senator Fraser. He was appointed to represent the Melbourne Royal Agricultural Society at the Sheepbreeders' Conference at Norwich. Mr. Landale was an old member of the Royal Agricultural Society. Soon after he came to Australia, in the fifties, he and his brother Robert started a farm near Keilor. Afterwards they established the Deniliquin station, near Deniliquin, where they were very successful. Some years ago the Deniliquin property was divided into two stations - the Mundiwa, which was taken by Mr. Robert Landale, and Wandook, which was retained by Mr. Alexander Landale. The brothers also owned property in Balranald district. Alexander Lansdale had a particularly fine flock of Border Leicester stud sheep on his properties near Deniliquin. Within the two or three years he bought for his sons two properties in the western part and Leongatha districts. Mr. Landale leaves a widow and a family of four sons and two daughters. The sons are Captain Landale (manager of Wandook station), Mr. Russell Landale, and Mr. Gordon Landale (who have properties in Gippsland), and Mr. Douglas Landale (who is in England). One of the daughters is Mrs. Ronald Murray, and the other married Mr. Cyril Landale, son of Mr. Robert Landale. Mrs. Alexander Landale accompanied her husband to England to witness the coronation.
