Wilson, Seymour Thomas (1873–1939)

Mr. Seymour Wilson, who died on Saturday, was a member of the third generation of a pioneer Scottish family of the Tasmanian Midlands. The last of the second generation of the family, Mrs. George Wilson, died recently at Hobart, aged 93.

Mr. Seymour Wilson had for years been a familiar figure in Hobart. From 40 to 45 years ago he was a well-known sheep farmer, occupying the extensive property, Richmond Park, along the lower reaches of the Coal River. Then he acquired Mt. Seymour (now Ceres), where his grandfather established the family in Tasmania nearly 120 years ago.

Mr. Seymour Wilson was the third eldest son of George Wilson, of Huntworth, Jericho. He leaves three children, Donald, of the Hydro-Electric Department, Dennis (Victoria), and Doreen (Hobart).
