James Weatherly, n.d.

from Pastoral Review, 16 January 1915

The news of the sudden death of Mr. James Weatherly, of Wallaloo Park, Wallaloo, and of Hilgay Station, Coleraine, reported in The Argus of Wcdnesday, was received with widespread regret throughout the Wimmera and Western districts, where Mr. Weatherly resided for many years, and was held in much regard for his charitable disposition. Mr. Weatherly was particularly prominent in Anglican Church life, and interested himself greatly in parish, diocesan, and missionary work in the diocese of Ballarat. A few years ago he built, practically at his own expense, a beautiful church at Wallaloo, and subsequently erected and furnished a suitable house for the clergyman of the district. Mr. Weatherly leaves a widow—daughter of Mr. Stafford Bird, of Tasmania—and a family of grown-up daughters by a previous marriage.
