James Hughes died at his house, Clifton Farm, Malmsbury, on the 19 April 1885 aged 65. The death registration shows only his father's name as James.
The Kyneton Observer 21 April 1885
A funeral notice announces the death
of Mr James Hughes, of Malmsbury, who
had resided in that district for over 30
years. Mr Hughes was a Sydney native,
but came to this side of the Murray 44
years ago. For a long time past he
suffered severely from an affection of
the liver, which in connection with
dropsy proved fatal on Sunday last. Mr
Hughes was 65 years of age. The funeral
takes place to-day at half-past two o'clock,
the place of interment being the Malmsbury
Cemetery.

James Hughes and his wife Elizabeth also had a son named James Albert Hughes who, in 1888, drowned in a well in the back yard of his mother's house in Malmsbury. He was 5 years old.
