Thomas Edward Lempriere (1860–1946)

Mr Thomas Edward Lempriere, 85, who died at Whittlesea on Sunday, was a member of a pioneer family. His grandfather, who was Commissary-General of Tasmania, migrated to that state in the 1820's, and his father. Mr W. G. Lempriere, settled in Melbourne in 1858.

Mr T. E. Lempriere was educated at Horton College, Tasmania, and Geelong Grammar School. After a short experience in banking, he engaged in pastoral work in New South Wales and South Gippsland, and in the early 90's spent some years on the West Australian goldfields. He was a keen sportsman, being particularly interested in hunting. He is survived by his widow. Mr O. T. Lempriere is a brother.
