William Padbury (1835–1906)

The funeral of the late Mr. William Padbury, sen., of Hoogan, late of Chadbury, Oxfordshire, England, took place at Koogan on Tuesday December 4, and was attended by practically all the residents of the district. The first part of the funeral service was conducted at the deceased's late residence by the Rev. W. Everingham, of Guildford. The cortege then proceeded to the place of interment. The pall-bearers were Mr. E. Roberts (Yathroo), Mr. C. K. Davidson (Glentromie), Mr. Jas. Atkinson (Morgumber), and Mr. P. D. Ferguson (Elsternwick). The funeral arrangements were carried out by Mr. L. D. Jones, of Guildford. Mr. Padbury was 71 years of age, and the father of Mr. Wm. Padbury, of Guildford; Mr. M. T. Padbury, of Koojan; and Miss Padbury, of Perth. He came out from England about 15 years ago, and had since resided with his son at Koogan. Although deprived of his sight, he had been in fairly good health until the Sunday night, when he succumbed to heart disease.
