Charles Young, n.d.

from Pastoral Review, 16 March 1916

Mr. Charles Young, of Hilltop, in the Carcoar district, New South Wales, died of heart failure last month at the age of 78. It was a great shock to his family, as except for a little indisposition on the day previous to his death, he was to all outward appearances in very good health.

He was a successful pastoralist, and the " C. Y. Hilltop" wool was one of the leading Merino clips of the district. Born in Scotland in 1838, the late Mr. Young arrived in Australia in 1861, and first went to the New England district of New South Wales; after six months, however, he entered the service of the late Mr. John Loudon, of Grubbenbung, where he stayed for eight years, and then took up the management of Nuneham Park, in the Carcoar district, for the late Mr. Barnard Simpson. He became a partner in the estate, but in 1890 the partnership was dissolved, and Mr. Young went to reside at Hilltop, where he remained until his death. For some years he was a director of the local Stock Board. Mr. Young leaves a widow and three children.
