Death of Mr. LANSELL
Mr. George LANSELL, the Quartz King, of Bendigo, died on Sunday, aged 83. He had been ailing for some time, and for weeks had been informing his friends that he knew the end was approaching. He leaves a grown-up family. His eldest daughter is at present lying at his late residence dangerously ill.............? who was on a station in Queensland was ..........hed for a week ago, and by travelling night and day, by coach, train, and motor-car, managed to reach Bendigo on Sunday morning, some hours before his father's death. It is understood that Mr. LANSELL left a will, under which he appointed Mrs. LANSELL executrix, and the Sandhurst Trustee Company executors of his estate. The fact that during the year the eldest son, Horace, has taken his father's place on the directorate of a number of principal mines, would indicate that deceased has arranged for his interests in mining to be retained by the family. Mr. LANSELL was born at Margate...............?, August 24, 1823, One of his brothers,...............?LANSELL, who still resides in Bendigo was a sailor, and in one of his voyages he touched at several points of Australia, when the gold fever was raging at its highest. The sailor wrote home glowing accounts of the ease with which fortunes were being made on the diggings, and in 1853, with another brother, William, George set sail for a new land. After spending a few weeks at Echunga, in South Australia, in unprofitable digging, he found his way to Bendigo, where he decided to take up his old trade of soap and candle manufacturer. All his savings were invested in the leading enterprises of the day. Twice he failed, and twice he went back to work, and saved more capital. Mining was then just evolving from the alluvial to the quartz stage. He obtained interests in the Cinderella, Prince Alfred, and Advance Companies, and laid the foundation of his fortune. His gains he invested in other stock, until his investments were dotted all over the field. When mines were depressed, he clung tenaciously to his shares. The 180 Mine was opened in the fifties. The original holders sold it for £30 to Ballerstedt and Son, who, when they had made a fortune, and apparently exhausted all resources, disposed of it, together with the Fortuna battery and a handsome villa to Mr.. LANSELL of £30,000. The first stope worked returned the purchaser a clear profit of £180,000 and that was but a fraction of his subsequent gains.
