Alfred Mainwaring Rich (1823–1893)

from Queanbeyan Age

News has been received of the death of Mr. Alfred Mainwaring Rich, who died at the residence of his son at Gunning. The above named gentleman who was highly connected–being the brother of the late Major General Rich–was formerly a resident here for many years and was well known both here and at Gundaroo. The deceased came out to Tasmania when that colony was a penal settlement, with the 11th regiment, under Colonel Bloomsfield, to which regiment he was attached as one of the medical officers, and remained with them after their arrival in this colony until they were ordered home, when he retired. After his retirement he never practiced his profession, but followed the occupation of a teacher. He leaves a son and three daughters, all of whom are married.
