40. William Joseph Kable

The late Mr. William Joseph Kable, 79 years of age, who died last Wednesday at his late residence at Kent-road, Woolowin, was bom in Bathurst, N.S.W., in 1835. While yet in his teens he followed the gold rush to the Yuron and Ballarat fields. In 1852 he decided to try Queensland, and came to Redbank station, on the Burnett. After some years there he removed to Cracow and
Gyrandah stations, on the Dawson. In 1869 he travelled to Corio station, on the Comet, and stocked that station with sheep. His previous ventures had been with cattle. A very few years of the Comet satisfied him, and he turned his attention to the Dawson, reverting to cattle, and also taking up horse breeding. In the early eighties the late Mr. Kable took up Lilyvale station, and his family took up their residence in Taroom township. He made extensive purchases, of blood stock in Sydney, but in 1893 left Lilyvale station, the heavy losses of stock and horses in the 1898 flood having disheartened him. He had since resided in Brisbane. Alter his arrival in the metropolis he took a deep interest in the hospitals, and for a year acted as secretary to the Hospitals Aid Association. In 1858 the late Mr. Kable married a daughter of the late Mr. John Ross, of Redbank station. His widow and a family of four (one son and three daughters) survive him.

The lifetime of Mrs. John Henry Kable, who died at Bathurst recently at the age of 93, spanned Sydney's development from a humble township to a great city. Born in O'Connell-street in 1829, she paddled in the Tank Stream as a girl, and lived to see grow over that creek one of the great cities of the British Empire. Bound up with her life history are many of the most interesting happenings in the early life of the colony. Mrs. Kable was one of a family of 15, and she was born in a house which fronted O'Connell-street, on the site of the present chemical warehouse of Elliott Bros, Limited. Mrs. Kable in her girlhood was very fond of playing in the stream. In later years she often talked of the fine patches of corn and the vegetable gardens that then lined it, and she had a clear recollection of having often run over the bridge at about the spot where Bridge-street intersects Pitt-street.  Her mother was born in the same house in O'Connell-street, and the latter's father (John Manning), was one of the first contractors in Sydney, and was responsible for the construction of many of the original wharfs in Sydney Cove. Mrs. Kable's father (John Mills) was an early schoolmaster, and conducted schools in several places, notably at Parramatta. His last school was at Kurrajong. He died in 1865, and is buried in St. Peter's Churchyard, Richmond. It was at Richmond that the late Mrs. Kable met her husband. He was associated with Windsor for many years, and a street in this town is named after him. He also was a descendant of the pioneers, being a grandson of Henry Kable, who came out in the first fleet, and later figured prominently in what, it is claimed, was Australia's earliest commercial and shipping firm, Kable and Underwood. They were large ship owners, and were engaged in the sealing trade to Bass Strait as early as 1804, later taking up other remunerative enterprises. The progress of Kable and Underwood, however, was interrupted by Governor Bligh and his trading restrictions, and Mr. Kable got into grips with that adminstrator early in 1807. As the result of one of these altercations Mr. Kable was heavily fined and ordered to be imprisoned for one month for addressing the Govenor in improper terms. At a meeting held later he placed the name of the firm at the head of a subscription list with £500 for the purpose of helping to defray the expenses of sending Mr. John Macarthur to England to advocate the removal of Governor Bligh.
