John Windeyer (1830–1892)

By the death of Mr. John Windeyer, of Kinross, the Hunter River district has lost a much respected and valued resident. He was the only surviving son of the late Archibald Windeyer, who purchased Kinross in 1840, and lived there until his death, since which time it was Mr. John Windeyer's home. As a magistrate he was just and attentive to all his duties, considerate as a landlord, courteous, genial, and warmly hospitable, yet all in a most unostentatious manner. His death took place on Sunday last, and the large gathering at his funeral on Monday evidenced the high esteem in which he was held.
