Robert Hall Owen (1830–1874)

We regret to announce the somewhat sudden decease of Mr. Robert Hall Owen, solicitor and Deputy Registrar of the Supreme Court, at his residence, No. 247, Macquarie-street, opposite the Infirmary, at half-past 12 o'clock yesterday. A few days ago the deceased gentleman caught a cold, which terminated fatally, in inflamation of the lungs, at the above hour. He leaves a widow and one daughter. His age was 45 years, and he was the second son of the Hon. Robert Owen, M.L.C.
