- Graham Brothers and Co. [-]
Notebooks; legal papers; financial papers; correspondence; papers regarding John Capel's run; government publications. The papers listed relate to the administration of John Capel's will, for which James Graham and a Dr. Richard Youl were joint executors. Capel occupied a run 'Gonn' (parts of which was leased originally as 'Noorong' and 'Mooroomgatta') on the northern bank of the Murray River near the Loddon junction from the late 1840s. During the 1860s and 1870s he began to buy parcels of land and with the aid of well placed friends attempted to prevent selectors and public reserves encroaching on the holdings. On Capel's death in March 1877, his estate was sold and divided between his six brothers and sisters and a trust for his dead brother Daniel's four daughters. The trust was finally wound up in 1921.
