"AN OLD COLONIST GONE.-The late Mr. Henry Angel who died at Lake Albert, near Wagga, at his residence on the 7th instant, at the age of 91 year, was a colonist for over 60 years, having arrived in the colony in 1819. He first settled in Kiama as a farmer. In 1824 he went with Humo and Hovell's party on the expedition overland to Hobson's Bay. He was one of the first men who crossed the River Murray and was always foremost in any difficult situations or hardships on the journey. Mr. Hume, in his reports of the expedition, frequently mentions the name ot Henry Angel, and speaks highly of his courage and determination. He appears always to have been a man on whom great reliance was placed by the explorers iu any difficulty or hardships.

Mr. Angel afterwards followed the occupation of a farmer and became a squatter on the Murrumbidgee. He eventually settled near Wagga, and became possessed of a considerable landed estate. He was noted in the district for his strict integrity. ln 1832 he married Mary Brooker. There were l6 children of the marriage, eight of whom and the widow and 70 grandchildren survive their father.

DEATH NOTICE, MR. JAMES ANGEL. WAGGA. Monday.

The death has occurred of Mr. James Angel, 76- years, an old resident of the district, and a well-known grazier. At one time he owned Humula Station. He was a son of Mr Henry Angel, who was a member of the Hume and Hovell exploration party when they travelled down the Murray and Murrumbidgee rivers

Sydney Morning Herald, Tuesday 8 June 1926

OBITUARY

MR. J. ANGEL

Mr. James Angel, one of Wagga's early pioneers, died at his residence, Beckwith-street, Wagga, on Saturday evening, at the age of 76, after an illness extending over a period of three years.

His first wife, formerly Miss E. Boyton, predeceased him 14 years ago. All the children who are named below are of the first marriage. He was a member of a highly respected and interesting family.

Mr. Angel was a link between the early history of this State and the times in which we live. His father, Mr. Henry Angel, whose remains lie in the Wagga cemetery, was one of the party of explorers, led by Hume and Hovell, who discovered the Murrumbidgee and Murray rivers, and is believed to have been the first white man to swim across the Murray.

In 1845 he settled at Wardry, near Hay, there opening up country, much of which is now occupied by Uardry (renamed from Wardry) Station. Henry Angel, jun., brother of the deceased, died on July 9, 1924, at the age of 87.

The surviving members of his father's family are Mrs. John Hurst, of North Wagga, and Mrs. Harris, who lives in Sydney, Messrs. Samuel Angel, of Trail-street, Wagga, and Mr. Edward J. Angel, of Lake Albert.

When the mother of these ladies and gentlemen died in 1880, there were no fewer than 90 grandchildren, and 40 great-grandchildren. She was known as a woman of keen and vigorous intellect, and of a warm heart, extraordinarily resourceful, industrious, careful and liberal.

It would be interesting to record the complete history of this family, which originated in Wiltshire, England.

The deceased is survived by a widow (nee Miss E. Foot, of Melbourne), and four sons, Ashley and Percival, of Wagga, Ernest, of Dubbo, and Charles, of Bexley; four daughter, Mrs. E. Harris, of Campbelltown, Mrs. O. Daley, of Bondi, Mrs. A. E. Henningham, of Tarcutta-street, Wagga, and Miss Thelma Angel, of Bondi.

He also has 25 grandchildren, and two great grandchildren. A daughter, Mrs. A. Graham, of Lake Albert, died some years ago.

Archdeacon Pike will conduct a short service at Mr. Angel's late residence in Beckwith-street, at 10.30 this morning, and funeral will leave the residence for interment in the Church of England portion of the Wagga cemetery at 10.45. Members of the Loyal Southern Star lodge, M.U.I.O.O.F., are asked to attend the funeral.
