from Pastoral Review, 16 September 1927

The death of Mr. H. S. Chilton Young, which occurred in Sydney on the 25th of last month, has removed a familiar figure from pastoral circles in New South Wales. Born in Kent, England, in 1860, he came to Australia about forty years ago, and became associated with the Pastoral Finance Association Limited, eventually being appointed its general manager, a position he held until the disastrous fire which resulted in the winding-up of the company.

Many years before that event he started in the interests of the company a quarterly magazine, known as the P.F.A. Quarterly, and when the New Zealand Loan and Mercantile Agency Company acquired the assets of the defunct company, Mr. Young was appointed editor of the magazine, which then became the N.Z.L. Quarterly, a name it retained until about a year ago, when it was changed to The New Nation. Mr. Young showed much editorial ability in the conduct of the magazine, of which he made a unique and excellently produced publication of worldwide interest.

Mr. Young married in 1891 Miss Jane Caroline Temple, a daughter of Captain Thomas Malcolm Temple, R.N., of Plymouth, and is survived by her. Urbane, courteous and considerate, he was respected by all who knew him, and his death will be deeply regretted by a very large circle of friends and acquaintances who knew his sterling worth and valued his friendship.
