Stanley Edgar Ogden (1892–1957)

Mr. Stanley Edgar Ogden, who was well-known and widely respected in pastoral circles in the eastern States, and a member of a family that had served the great Australian Agricultural Company for more than a century, died at Quirindi, N.S.W., last month at the age of 65. His grandfather, Mr. George Ogden, came to Australia from England in 1856 as surveyor to the Australian Agricultural Company, and the family association with the company was continued by his father, the late Mr. R. M. Ogden, who was manager of Windy Station, Willow Tree, N.S.W., from 1885 to 1930, when his son, Mr. S. E. Ogden, took over the management, which he continued until his retirement last year.

The late Mr. S. E. Ogden was born at Maitland (N.S.W.), and went to Windy Station as a baby. He was educated at "Shore" Grammar School, Sydney, and with the exception of his years at school had lived at Windy all his life. Altogether, he worked at the station for more than 48 years. He was a councillor of the old Warrah Shire Council for 18 years, and was also well-known as a show judge of stock, particularly of British breeds of sheep.

In 1930 the late Mr. Ogden married Hazel, the eldest daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Reg. Doyle. They had three children—one daughter, Judy, who lives at Quirindi, and two sons—Tony, of Quirindi, and Peter, who manages Rockhampton Downs, in the Northern Territory.
