Edward Ernest Stuckey (1870–1937)

Mr. Edward Ernest Stuckey, who died near Condobolin (New South Wales) recently, was born at Dashwood’s Gully in 1870. He was the second son of the late Mr. S. J. Stuckey, founder of the well-known Millicent firm of S. J. Stuckey & Son. He went to Millicent as a child, and after private tuition, was one of the first pupils of the Pompoon Public School. Later on he was one of the first pupils at Roseworthy College, where he obtained his diploma of agriculture. Joining the Woods and Forests Department, Mr. Stuckey was stationed at the Wirrabara Forest in the north for some years, and was afterwards appointed to the charge of the Mount Burr Forest, in succession to Mr. Melville. Mr. Stuckey planted the splendid pinus radiata trees that form an imposing avenue leading to the residence of the forester at Mount Muirhead. He resigned from the Woods and forests Department in 1906, and was succeeded by Mr. Franz Kayser. Mr. Stuckey remained in the Millicent district until 1910 when he purchased a grazing property near Balladoran, in New South Wales. After the war he purchased The Ranch, a mixed farming property at Condobolin. Mr. Stuckey was twice married. His first wife, formerly Miss Helena Gardner, of near Bordertown, died several years ago, leaving three sons and two daughters. There was no issue of the second marriage. The sons are Mr. R. E. Stuckey, manager of the Union Bank at Cowra (New South Wales); Mr. G. P. Stuckey, barrister, of Sydney: and Mr. Harold Stuckey, grazier, of Forbes; and the daughters are Mrs. Doris Body, of Pymble, Sydney, and Sister Thelma Stuckey, of Condobolin. Messrs. T. F. Stuckey (Millicent), and J. H. Stuckey (Rendelsham) are brothers.
