A member of a pioneer family and a well-known resident of Tumut, Mr. Charles James Byng Ratliff, has died at his home, "Wollongawah," Tumut, aged 71 years.

He was born on the property on which he resided all his life. He was the third son of the late Charles Hodges Ratliff, who came out to Australia from Coventry, County Warwickshire (Eng.), and his mother was the second daughter of the late Henry Bingham, Commissioner for Crown Lands for Tumut River, whose headquarters were also at Wiollongawah.

The family comprised four sons, Cheekley Hodges, John Cleophas, Charles James and Edward G., and four daughters, Gertie, Julia, Mrs. R. Large and Mrs. W. A. W. de Beuzeville, the only survivors being Edward and the latter.

Some years ago Mr. Charles Ratliff married Miss Burton Bradley, third daughter of the late Henry Bradley, solicitor, of Sydney, who survives.
