Scott, G. Firth: The Rider of Waroona. V1. 10 Jun 2012
George Henry Firth Scott, journalist and writer, generally known as G. Firth Scott, was the son of George Firth Scott, land Commissioner and Emma Elizabeth (nee Barnes). He was born about 1862 at Golspie, County Sutherland, Scotland.
He came to Australia and worked as a journalist for newspapers, including the Hobart Mercury and the Sydney Daily Telegraph and also contributed stories to magazines including Belgravia. On 4 October, 1889 he married Ailleen Murphy at St. Stephen's Cathedral, Brisbane. [...]
He was a man who never discarded any article of use or clothing until it was hopelessly beyond repair. With a huge fortune stowed away in gilt-edged securities and metropolitan house property, he grudged even a coat of paint for the vehicle he had driven for nearly forty years. The local wheelwright had long since declined to attempt to repair it, so the old man fell back on fencing-wire and his own skill whenever the final collapse seemed imminent.
