Allan Yeomans (1847–1916)

Mr. Allan Yeomans, of Gilgoin Station, Brewarrina, New South Wales, died at his residence in Sydney last month. His death came suddenly, and was a shock to a large circle of friends.

The late Mr. Yeomans was born near Windsor, New South Wales, and from the Sydney Grammar School he passed on to the University, where he graduated as M.A. Then he went up to Queensland and spent some years in the Burnett district, while about 40 years ago he went to Gilgoin, and held the property till the time of his death. In the words of a man who was at school with him and had been his friend ever since, "He was as straight as they make them." Humorous, helpful, and loyal, his was the optimistic temperament which is born of right-living, square-dealing, and all-round efficiency. He will be greatly missed by many, for his company was always cheery and pleasant.
