Clifford Longworth (?–1956)

The death occurred in Sydney on 10th October, at the age of 59, of Mr. Clifford Longworth, of Talana, Weemalah, N.S.W., and he was buried at Moree the following day.

Mr. Longworth, who was one of the most popular figures in the north-west of the State, had lived at Talana since returning from the first world war in 1920. He was particularly interested in all the local amateur racing bodies of the surrounding districts and he raced horses for many years at Moree and other centres with conspicuous success.

The late Mr. Clifford Longworth was the second youngest of seven sons of Thomas Longworth, originally of Cobar, but who came to Sydney and made his home at Woollahra House, Woollahra Point. He founded and successfully built up the Crusader Woollen Mills. His five surviving sons are Sid, Harold (Jack), William, Richard, and Norman.

The late Mr. Clifford Longworth is survived by his widow, Ella (daughter of Mr. Alfred Gilder, formerly of Piercefield, Muswellbrook, N.S.W.), and his son Wallace, and daughter Mrs. Barbara Horton.
