    • Remarkable Record for Longevity
      Broken with Death of Mr. W. J. M. Martin
      The death in a private hospital, Melbourne, on Saturday, of Mr. William John Matthew Martin, formerly of Birregurra, at the age of 82, breaks a link in a family, which possesses a remarkable record for longevity.
      The eldest of a family of eight was born at Birregurra in 1853 and the youngest in 1869, and Mr. Martin's death was the first, their average age being 80 years nine months.
      Their mother was over 90 when she died, and their maternal grandfather, Mr. Matthew Farndale, lived to the great age of 92.
      Came from England 89 years ago
      The late Mr. Martin's parents, Mr. and Mrs. William Martin, arrived at Birregurra from England in 1853, and resided there for many years, earning the esteem of a wide circle of friends.
      The late Mr. John Martin went to live at Yarrawonga many years ago, following rural pursuits very successfully.
      His wife, who predeceased him some years ago, was Miss Irene Erlandson, member of a well known Colac family. There are two sons, Erland and Farndale.
      Mr. Martin was a brother of Mesdames W. M. Aspland, T.Parkinson and Miss M. Martin, of Camperdown. Mrs H. Smith (Brunswick) is another sister, and brothers are Messrs Edgar Martin (Williamstown) and Mr Alfred Martin (Yarrawonga).
