Stephen George Staughton (1840–1929)

The death has occurred of Mr. Stephen George Staughton, at his home, Woodside, Queen's road, Melbourne. Mr. Staughton was born at Islington (England) 88 years ago. When aged only one year he came from England with his father, Mr. Simon Staughton, who was a pioneer pastoralist of the Bacchus Marsh district. Mr. Stephen George Staughton went to school in England, and on his return engaged in pastoral pursuits in Victoria. In 1862 he became interested in two properties on the Darling River, in New South Wales. About 20 years ago he resigned his interest in these properties, and came to live in Melbourne.
