DAVIES, Sam Stephen (d. 1927) railway worker (newspaper obituary)

DEIGHTON, Edward (1833-94) (right) was originally from Cambridge, England, and emigrated to Australia in 1852. He became a successful public servant, and was the Under-Secretary for Works and Railways from 1877-88.

He owned the large ‘Deighton Estate’ near the cemetery, bounded by Annerley Road, Gladstone Road and Gloucester Street. The family left a lasting mark on the local area as many of the streets in this area now bear the names of his family members, his hometown, and his ‘Wacumbah’ house. He and his wife Emma had nine children.
