Macarthur, Edward Hannibal (1859–1947)

Mr. Edward Hannibal Macarthur 86, who died at his home at Graceville yesterday, was a great-grandson of Governor King and related to John Macarthur, who was responsible for the first importation of merino sheep to Australia.

Mr. E. H. Macarthur had a close family link with the settlement of the Darling Downs, for George and Patrick Leslie were uncles, Mrs. Patrick Leslie being a Macarthur, and his wife was formerly Miss Wildash, daughter of an early owner of Canning Downs.

He has left his wife, one son — Geoffrey (of Condong) — and one daughter— Mrs. W. Scott (Sydney). His sister— Mrs. W. Stephenson— lives in Warwick.
