Mr. John Bowman, his grandfather, came to Australia in 1839 from Tasmania, where he had commenced sheep farming in 1835. He had four sons, of whom Mr. Edmund Bow- man, sen., was the eldest. Mr John Bow- man bought land at Enfield and Dry Creek, and afterwards acquired the Martindale and Werocata estates. Mr. Edmund Bowman, jun., had his his first experience at Martindale on 4,000 acres of sheep coun- try. After the death of Mr. Edmund Bowman, sen., the estate was managed by Mr. William Bowman for the trustees, spe- cial attention being paid to improving the breed of sheep. The Martindale Estate was bought by Mr. W. T. Mortlock, who purchased a large proportion of the   stud shown. In 1877 Mr. Bowman took a share in a large area north-west of Port Augusta. As a result of a series of droughts and the low prices obtained for wool the venture ended in loss, and four properties—Werocata, Martindale, Wandil- lah, and Mount Bryan—were disposed of.   After two years at Holm Hill Mr. Bowman

became manager (for Messrs. Ayers Bro- thers) of Wandillah, and his eldest son, Mr. E. T. Bowman, succeeded him at Holm Hill. When the Government resumed for   closer settlement 4,000 acres of Wandillah Mr. Bowman bought the homestead and some land, and then Wandillah and Holm Hill were worked together. Mr. Bowman took a great interest in Burra affairs, and for some years was a member of the dis- trict council and the hospital board. He was an enthusiast in all kinds of sport, and was one of those who originally intro- duced polo into South Australia, which he represented in inter-state matches. After leaving St. Peter's College, he entered Clare College, Cambridge, where he rowed in the college eight. He married Miss Cowie, a daughter of the late Mr. C. T. Cowie, at one time manager of the Adelaide branch of the E. S. and A. Bank. A widow, four daughters and two sons survive him. One son is a farmer at Jamestown. Mr. Bow- man was a man of the finest character, and his loss will be felt by all who have en- joyed his friendship. His splendid qua- lities were always appreciated by this fel- low pastoralists, by whom he was highly respected. He was a thorough sportsman in every sense of the word.               Mis Jlaxtha Burns a.
