      At the age of 87 years, Mr. William Elson House passed away in the Armidale and New England Hospital on Wednesday night. Born in Somerset, England, deceased sailed for Australia eighteen years later in a windjammer that took six months for the trip. He first took up dairying in the Kiama district, and later came to New England, where he followed grazing pursuits.

      Some years ago he retired and invested in city property. He was well known and highly respected throughout New England. He was married twice, and of the first marriage he leaves three sons, John, James, William (Armidale) and one daughter (Mrs. John Pont, Armidale). Of the second marriage, three sons—H. J. (Armidale), T. (North Sydney), E. (Armidale)—and two daughters—Mrs. Landrlgan (Waverley) and Miss May House (Armidale.)—survive. He leaves, also 30 grand-children and 12 great-grandchildren. The funeral took place Friday afternoon, the remains heing laid to rest in The Church of England cemetery. The. Rev. Benyon officiated and Mr. T. Crowley had charge of the arrangements.

      A William Elson House died in Armidale in 1907, as revealed by the NSW probate records. So it must have been someone else, since the 1927 death clearly marks his parents as William and Louisa and the obituary further confirms this.
