Alfred Stanger Leathes (1822–1895)


The death of Mr. A. Stanger Leathes at Bowral on Saturday removes a well-known   figure from the business life of Sydney. When he came to the colonies, Mr. Stanger Leathes was for some time engaged in mining enterprise. On the resignation of Mr. Styles manager of the Australasian General Assurance Company, the life business of which was merged into the Liverpool and London and Globe Company, he became resident secretary of this institution in 1854, and continued   that office until August 1880, when he resigned, receiving very complimentary expressions of the company's appreciation of his services. Since then Mr. Stanger Leathe has been a member of the board of the New South Wales branch of the company. He was also at one time a director of the Colonial Sugar-refining Company. At the time of his death he was seventy-six years of age, and he leaves a widow, a son, and a daughter.
