Richard Goldsbrough Row (1860–1914)

Richard Row, n.d.

Richard Row, n.d.

from Pastoral Review, 16 June 1914

The sudden death of Mr. Richard Goldsbrough Row occurred in Melbourne last month from heart disease. The late Mr. Row was very intimately connected with the wool trade for a great number of years, being engaged in Melbourne with Goldsbrough, Mort and Co. Limited, but subsequently establishing a firm of his own under the style of R. Goldsbrough Row and Co. Eventually that firm became amalgamated with Younghusband and Co.

After a successful business career Mr. Row retired, and of late has had little to do with the wool business, beyond acting during the past few years as wool expert for the New Zealand Loan and Mercantile Agency Company.

Mr. Row was a most enthusiastic supporter of racing, and for the last twenty years has been a member of the committee of the Victoria Amateur Turf Club. He was the owner of several racehorses, the best of which was probably Repeater, who won the Caulfield Grand National Hurdle Race (now the Australian Hurdle Race) in 1901.

When 25 or 26 years of age, Mr. Pow married the actress, Miss Nellie Stewart, but the marriage was subsequently dissolved, and Mr. Row married again. He leaves a widow, two sons, and a daughter.
