  • 18 May 1916, The Rev. G. J. and Mrs Richmond. Saturday's Melbourne dailies contained a golden wedding announcement of much interest to many in Kyneton; namely that of the Rev. G. J. Richmond and Mrs Richmond, of 5 Scott street, Canterbury. Mr and Mrs Richmond were married at Rowena Parade, Richmond, on the 10th May, 1866 by the Rev. J. C. McMicheal. Mrs Richmond being the daughter of the late Mr Geo. Coltherd, Melbourne.
    At that time Mr Richmond was the minister of the Kyneton Congregational Church, the pulpit of which he again filled after being for very many years founder and principal of Prospect
    House Academy, now Kyneton College. Almost the whole of this lengthy period Mr and Mrs Richmond have lived in Kyneton, only removing to Melbourne a few years back when Mr Richmond resigned the pastorate of the Kyneton church. Although feeling the weight of years, Mr Richmond is comparatively strong, though at present Mrs Richmond's health is giving cause for anxiety. Their many friends in Kyneton district will congratulate them very heartily upon their fiftieth wedding anniversary and wish them years of continued health and happiness. Mr and Mrs Richmond have three daughters and two sons: Mr Lindsay Richmond, of Wangaratta ; Private Herbert Richmond, on active service; Mrs Bedford, of Canterbury Mrs Max Castles, of Colac, and Mrs Leslie Castles, of Colac, and six grandchildren.4

His body was fearfully cut and lacerated, and after being attended to and rested at the hotel he led his horse home.
