The late Mr. E. P. Rogers, of Toorilla Plains, Rockhampton, Q., and of Tregye, Perranwell, Cornwall, was the second son of the Rev. J. Rogers, of Stanage Park, Herefordshire. He came out to Toorilla in 1873, after he left Wellington College, on the death of his uncle, the late Frank Newbold, who took up Toorilla Plains in 1859. He took a very prominent part in sport in Central Queensland, and had many successes in Rockhampton on the turf with his own bred horses, which he rode himself. He married in 1881 Charlotte, second daughter of the late J. M. Williams, of Caerhays Castle, Cornwall, and Gnaton Hall, Devonshire, and they had two sons and three daughters.

The late Mr. Rogers was an enthusiastic supporter of Hereford cattle, which he introduced in the seventies into the Toorilla herd, which is now absolutely pure Hereford. He managed the property till the end of the eighties, and after that resided in England, but paid very frequent visits to the property, and kept closely in touch with all local interests and projects. His second son, Lieut. H. P. Rogers, R.N., lost his life in 1914 in the battle of Coronel, and he is survived by his widow and two daughters, Mrs. Malcolm Maclaren, and Miss C. C. Rogers, and his eldest son, Mr. C. M. Rogers, who was a lieutenant in the Dorset Yeomanry, and is now managing the Toorilla Plains Estate.
