The death occurred on Wednesday, at his residence Chureh-street, Parramatta North, of Mr William Dick Moxham, at the age of 78 years. The deceased gentleman had been in critical health for the past three years, and only his active life and wonderful constitution preserved life so long. The late Mr Moxham was known from Cape York to Wilson's Promontory, and wherever horsemen congregate his name is a by-word to-day. Throughout his life his word was his bond, and he was one of the finest judges of horseflesh that the State has produced. He was the owner of several large stations in the Bourke district, and also in Queensland, and he also pioneered the fat lamb industry in the Hunter River district. He was a member of a well-known Parramatta family, his brother, Mr Thomas Moxham, having represented that electorate in the State Legislature for many years. For the past 57 years the late Mr. Moxham had resided at Parramatta. His wife survives him, also two sons and a daughter, viz., Mr C. R. B. Moxham (Wylie's Flat), Mr Will. Moxham (Katoomba, recently of Jerry's Plains), and Mrs. Les. Lamplough (Broke). The funeral took place yesterday.
