George Condamine Taylor (1855–1899)

We learn with sincere regret of the death of Mr. George Condamine Taylor, the popular owner of Bellevue station, on the Upper Brisbane River. Mr. Taylor, according to private advices received in Brisbane, died suddenly, while walking in the garden on Monday. The deceased gentleman, who was the eldest surviving son of the late Hon. James Taylor, M.L.C., was known all over Australia for his kindly nature and genial manner. His sudden and untimely death at the age of 44 will come as a shock to many in every class of the community in Queensland, and not less widespread will be the sympathy with his widow, whose generous kindness is proverbial, and who made Bellevue noted as one of the most charming and hospitable homes in the colony. Mr. Taylor was a member of the local divisional board until within a couple of weeks of his death, having then retired owing to ill-health.

Our Ipswich correspondent, writing last night, says:—The news of the death of Mr. G. Con. Taylor, of Bellevue, was heard in Ipswich with general regret. The deceased was highly respected in Ipswich and in the district in which he resided. He took a great interest in sporting matters. Some time ago he imported a number of English pheasants and English quail, and introduced them to the Bellevue station.
