Hugh Gilmour




The funeral of Mr Hugh Gilmour, an old resident of Newcastle, who died last Saturday night, took place on Monday afternoon Mr Gilmour was born in Ayrshire, Scotland, on April 20, 1820, and had lived in this city for 65 years. In 1832, when 12 years of age, he left his home to go to sea. Eventually, he landed in America. In 1849 he came to Sydney with his wife, but, after remaining there a few months, he left for Moruya, where he intended to settle. The sea life was too fascinating for him, and he had not been at Moruya for any length of time before he joined the crew of a ketch trading to the Shoalhaven. The little ketch was wrecked near Newcastle, and the crew was rescued by a boat sent out by Captain Livingstone, who at that time was harbour master. From that time, 1851, Mr Gilmour made his home in Newcastle. He was in the Government service for many years,and carried out several contracting work in the city and district. For any information relating to the early days Mr Gilmour was frequently referred to. He remembered the wreck of the Cawarra it the entrance to the port, and also many other vessels that had been lost along the coast.

Deceased leaves a widow, who is 86 years of age, and two daughters and one son.
