Obituary "To write the obituary notice of a friend is like conveying a last request from a dying soldier on the battlefield. The scythe of death has been busily plied in Glasgow during the past few years, and many of the old familiar faces in the profession have disappeared forever. Dr James Paterson died at the Bridge of Allen, the 21st inst. He had been laid aside from active duties of his large practice for the previous nine months, the phase which his illness assumed being that of an obscure cerebral affections. To the last, his intellect was perfectly unimpaired though he suffered from a particular variety of hemiplegia. The son of a medical, Dr Paterson entered the medical profession in the year 1834, and like many more who have risen in Glasgow to the position of honour, if not of affluence, he began practice in the east end of the city in a completely humble way. He there very soon acquired a large connection becoming well known as a successful obstetrician. In the year 1841, he became a Fellow of the Faculty of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow, under the old regulations, and in the same year accepted the position of lecturer on midwifery at the Anderson's College, then called Andersonian University. From this position, he retired in 1863 being succeeded by the late Dr James G. Wilson.

By his large clientele, Dr Paterson was much respected for his straightforward manliness of character, and his, perhaps for himself too pronounced intolerance of every form of sham or smallness. He was influenced in an eminent degree by a sterling loyalty of truth. During the early part of his University curriculum he studied with the intention of entering the church, but like many able and conscientious men, he found he was unlikely to submit to the ecclesiastical thralldom which was then more pronounced in Scotland than it is even now and he consequently turned his attention to a calling in life in which a little more freedom is enjoyed. He was thus possessed of an excellent preliminary education.

He was very popular with his students and as a lecturer. Some years ago, his name came prominently before the public in connection with the celebrated Pritchard case. Dr Paterson leaves a large family - one in the medical profession in Australia - all occupying honorable positions in their respective professions. It is noteworthy that three of his sons are masters of Arts of the University of Glasgow. He faced death as he faced the world with neither fear nor cringing. According to his own particular request he was interred in Janefield Cemetery, Glasgow, his funeral being strictly private."

"The other tale Gold Bricks of Badulla by P. H. Fawcett is about hidden gold in Ceylon. A Sinhalse reveals about the hidden gold to Judge Paterson, who asks his relative, a young army officer, to search for it. Lieutenant Fawcett comes across two gold bricks given to Jumna Das by tribals, in the belief they were iron ingots. The tribals wanted in return bows and arrows. Fawcett goes searching for the spot but mishaps force the local labourers to run away, fearing the curse of the dead."

Note on Child 8: William Hunter PATERSON

His early jobs included:

Jackerooing at the Boomerang Station near Maryborough in the Gayndah district, and managing Apis Creek cattle station.

In 1865 William began operating as a teamster between Rockhampton and the Peak Downs copper fields. (Alternatively: he ended up with a bullock team ferrying goods from Cooktown to the Palmer and from Rockhampton to the goldfields near there.)

 

In 1875 he returned to Scotland aboard the Lord Warden and came back to Queensland on the Fremantle in 1876.

 

"Despite the town's (Gladstone) reputation for healthiness, Mayor Jason Boles chaired a meeting on 19 January 1887 to consider a hospital. A large and enthusiatic committee was formed and by the following year sufficient money was in hand ($600) to build on the selected site in 1889. Total government expenditure 1889-1890 was $10038. The minutes provide no record of the opening, but presumably this was 1 March 1890. On that day Mr and Mrs (William and Edith) Paterson commenced duties as wardsman and matron."

 

Kathleen Lilias Paterson told the following about her father William:

1. William's wife was a lot younger. Edith was a religious person taking all the children to church every Sunday. William stayed at home believing that the Salvation Army would look after him. While Edith and the children were at church William took advantage of the time to allow the dog and joey into the house.

 

2.When William had deliveries to make to Callopie, west of Gladstone, his sons Charles and Fred were sent along to look after him. William used to open the beer supply on the way and by the time they were returning to Gladstone William was quite under the weather. Charles used to say. "Toss the grog out Fred", but Charles was the one tossed out of the dray to walk home past the cemetery, which in those days was way out in the bush.

 

PATERSON STREET in Gladstone was named after the Paterson Family of W H Paterson.32
