Mortlock, William Tennant (1858–1913)

Mr. W. T. Mortlock, a well-known South Australian pastoralist, with large interests in various parts of that State, died on 17th August at the age of fifty-five. The deceased, who was born in South Australia, though educated for the law, early turned his attention to wool growing, and his various station properties, chiefly in the saltbush country, aggregated about 2000 square miles. Mr. Mortlock sat in the State Parliament for several years. He was a supporter of racing, and bred Yudnappinna, which won the A.R.C. Grand National in 1911.
