  • 20 Nov 1905: DEATH OF MRS. RICHARD GRICE.
    A wide circle of friends will hear with regret of the death of Mrs. Grice, widow of the late Mr. Richard Grice (of Messrs. Grice, Sumner and Co.), which took place on Friday last, at the age of 83 years. The late Mrs. Grice was born at "Bowden," Chapel-en-le-Frith, Derbyshire, on 30th August, 1822. She came to Australia in 1844 with her father and mother, the late Mr. and Mrs. Hibberson, and was married at St. James's Church, Sydney, on 21st August, 1844, to Mr. Richard Grice, of Melbourne, who arrived in Melbourne in 1839. Mr. Grice is remembered through out Victoria for his many and generous charitable actions, his name being on almost every charitable list in Melbourne.
    He was the greatest supporter of the Church of England in Victoria, and always the largest subscriber to the Bishop of Melbourne's Fund, his subscriptions never being less than £500 per annum regularly. At one time he regularly subscribed £1000 per annum, but finding in one year that the total donations from all other sources, including his £1000,came, to only £1350, he reduced his subscription to £500 per annum, in order, as he said, to induce the friends of the fund to take more interest in it. The fund has since been fairly liberally supported. Mrs. Grice kept up all her late husband's subscriptions to the charities, and in addition the Bishop of Melbourne's Fund has always received a cheque annually from her for £500. In her private charities no one knew what she dispensed, except that the amount was very large. Mrs. Grice many years ago endowed one of the cottages at the Old Colonists' Homes. Both the late Mr. and Mrs. Grice had a great objection to official notice being taken of their donations to any fund. The deceased lady enjoyed good health until about last February, when she was taken ill at her residence, Mornington, and had never been really well since. A few months ago she was seized with a slight stroke of paralysis. About three weeks ago she was taken worse, and her death occurred at Victoria-parade on Friday, at 11.40 a.m., when she passed away quietly and painlessly in her sleep.
    Mrs. Grice had had a family of twelve, six of whom survive her, viz., Messrs. James, John and Richard Grice, Mrs. J. A. Levey, Mrs. Sturges, who resides in England (the wife of Mr. Sturges, well known as A.D.C. to the late Lord Loch when Governor here) and Mrs. Elwel, who lives in England. The late Mrs. Grice visited England with her husband in 1846, and had since his death paid several visits to the old country.
    The funeral took place on Saturday afternoon at the Melbourne General Cemetery, the Rev. Mr. White, of Trinity Church, East Melbourne (for many years vicar at Mornington), officiating. A very quiet, plain hearse and coffin of oak were provided, and there were no mourning coaches, the deceased lady always having very strong objections to pomp and show at what she considered ought, to be religious ceremonies. The following were the pall bearers: — Mr. D. R. M'Gregor (vice-president of the Old Colonists' Association). Captain Logan, Mr. Justice Hodges, Mr. Albert Miller, Mr. J.L. Purves, Mr. Henry Henty, Mr. John Catto and the Rev. C. P. M. Bardin.3

  • ;William Pearson The article reads: MR. PEARSON, M.L.C. RESIGNING HIS SEAT.
    SALE, Sunday.—Mr William Pearson, M.L.C., who has returned from a two years' trip to the old country will probably go there again. He intends to resign from the Legislative Council. Mr George W. Davis, of Sale son of the late Mr George Davis, M.L.C., is mentioned as a candidate in the Liberal interest.8
  • 3 Apr 1919: OBITUARY. THE LATE WILLIAM PEARSON.
    The news of the passing away, rather suddenly, of Mr. William Pearson, at his residence, Kilmany Park, on Monday morning last, occasioned widespread regret throughout the district. Early in the morning Mr. Pearson was about his home as usual, but his heart suddenly failed him, and he passed peacefully away before the arrival of Drs. Macdonald, Hagenauer, and Campbell. The deceased gentleman was the third son of the late Hon. William Pearson, one of the early and highly esteemed pioneers of Gippsland, and the Kilmany Park property has been in the family's possession for three score and a half years. Mr. Pearson was at one time the owner of Bonegilla Station, near Wodonga, which he sold on succeeding to the Kilmany Park Estate. He was keenly interested in sport generally, and at times had a horse in training. At one time he was President of the Sale Turf Club. At the time of the visit of His Majesty the King to Victoria, close on 20 years ago, Kilmany Park was placed at His Majesty's disposal as a shooting box, and on the occasion of his visit there His Majesty was entertained at afternoon tea by Mr. and Mrs. Pearson.
    Mr. Pearson's death was not altogether unexpected, as he had been in indifferent health for some time. He had only lately returned from England, where he had been to see his only son, Roy, who is still on active service with the British army in France. Besides the soldier son, the widow and two daughters survive Mr. Pearson. One of the daughters is the widow of the late Captain Jackson, who was killed in action. His surviving brothers are Messrs. John and Alex. Pearson, of Berwick and Glenroy, respectively. The deceased gentleman took an active part in the public life of Sale. For some time he was a member of the Sale Borough and Rosedale Shire Councils. He was also an ex-President of the North Gippsland Agricultural Society, with which body he was associated for a considerable number of years. Deceased represented the Gippsland Province in the Legislative Council from 1896 to 1916, being succeeded by the Hon. G. M. Davis. His father represented the same province from 1881 to 1893. He was 54 years of age.
    By Mr. Pearson's death the Diocese of Gippsland is deprived of one of its pillars. He has been a member of the Trusts Corporation since its inception, and for many years was chairman of committees of the Synod. In public, as in private life, he was a concientious and honourable man, and was of a retiring disposition.
    The funeral, which was largely attended, took place on Tuesday afternoon, the interment taking place in the Sale Cemetery. The chief mourners were deceased's brothers Messrs. J. and A. Pearson, and his brothers in-law, Messrs. Gooch Bros. The Sale Borough Council was represented by the Mayor, councillors, and the town clerk, and the Council of the Diocese of Gippsland by the chancellor, Mr. P. P. Sergeant; advocate, Mr. William Bruce; registrar, Mr. C. W. Bell, and Messrs. L. C. Treloar, E. R. M'Quie, and A. L. Johnson. The Cathedral Chapter was represented by Messrs. R. J. Cherry, G. Walker, R. Williams, and E. Phipps, senr. The burial service was conducted by the Bishop of Gippsland, assisted by the Rev. R.. G. Nichol, warden of the Divinity Hostel. In an impressive address his Lordship referred in eloquent terms to the life of the deceased, and various traits in his character.
    The funeral arrangements were in the hands of Messrs. L. Jensen & Co.9

  • 18 Jan 1923: PECULIAR SHOOTING FATALITY. FARMER KILLS HIMSELF INSTEAD OF OPOSSUMS.
    The body of Charles C. Kent, aged 45, a farmer, of Oaklands, near Narre Warren, Gippsland, was taken to the Morgue to-day. It appears that Kent was troubled by opossums climbing over his house, and rising on Monday night be took his gun and climbed a tree to shoot them. Next morning he was found at the foot of the tree shot through the head, while the gun still remained up the tree. He was removed to a private hospital, but failed to survive his injuries. (Melbourne, Wednesday.)7
  • 26 Jan 1923: An Unfortunate Accident. FARMER'S MISHAP WITH A GUN.
    An inquest was held before the City Coroner at the Morgue yesterday, on the body of Charles Athlee Kent, farmer, of Narre Warren. Evidence was given to show that deceased, clad in a pyjama suit and coat and trousers, was found lying at the foot of a tree on his property on the morning of 16th January. A fractured rifle was suspended in the branches, and deceased, who had a powder-marked bullet wound in one temple, was holding an electric torch. It was his custom to shoot opossums, which frequent the tree, a Moreton Bay fig tree, under which he was found.
    The Coroner said it looked like an accident. It was possible that deceased had tried to dislodge an opossum and slipped; the gun catching in the fork of the tree, and exploding as he fell. He accordingly found a verdict of death by accident.8
