Edward Crisp Drowned

The Courier. Hobart

23 September 1846

Edward Crisp, Esq., was drowned, at the latter end of August, in attempting to rescue a shepherd in his service, whose canoe had been swamped in crossing the Murrumbidgee.

The most painful reflection was that the danger of the shepherd was but apparent, as he was firmly seated on a large log; from which he was safely removed after Mr. Crisp's disappearance. Mr. Crisp was a son of Thomas Crisp, Esq., of Redgrave Hall, Suffolk, and was highly esteemed in the neighbourhood of Gundagai, where he had but recently settled.
