man Francis John Langton‏‎ #46690
Born ‎29 Oct 1907 Toogoolawah, Queensland, Australia, died ‎8 Oct 1996 Dalby, Queensland, Australia‎, 88 years
Frank Langton was raised on the Langton family property at Gilla, mid-way between Blackbutt and
Yaraman.
Irene Cuddihy was raised on 'Fernvale' Yamsion.
Frank married Irene Cuddihy in 1935 and they settled in Kaimkillenbun where they built a home
opposite the school house. Frank worked as the local Shell Petroleum fuel agent. Their three
children Fay(b 1936), Bernie (b 1937) and Terry (b 1941) were born in Dalby while Frank and Irene
lived at Kaimkillenbun.
The family moved to Blackbutt c1947 where they built a new house and purchased a block of land
to construct a slaughter house. Having built stock yards on the block Frank changed his mind and
did notpursue a career in butchering.
After only a year or two in Blackbut the family moved to Yamsion where they leased a dairy farm
and remained for approximately three years.
Frank and Irene then purchased a property on top of the Bunya Mountains in1951 from Reg
Cullen. Only about 40 acres of the property - a portion known as 'Ross' Forest' - was somewhat
suited to grazing but it too had a light cover of eucalypt forest which Frank, Bernie and Terry
proceeded to clear. They also cleared large areas of rainforest (scrub) on the property and planted
Kikuyu grass to expand the grazing areas.
The National Parks Service sought and secured a 'land swap' with Frank whereby they obtained a
portion of rainforest adjacent to the National Park in exchange for some forestry land at 'Saddletree
Creek'.
Frank and Rene ran beef and dairy cattle until the property was sold to Frank Unwin in 1975.
Frank Langton then purchased a property at Tara and a house in Nicholson Street, Dalby. Irene
moved into the Dalby house while Frank lived at Tara. Irene later moved from Nicholson Street to

Home in Dalby.
Frank left the Irvingdale property when his health began to fail and lived with the families of sons
Bernie and Terry until he was hospitalised. He died in Dalby Hospital.

Messrs.William James Langton (Black- butt) and Charles Martin Langton (Biarra), and two
daughters-Mrs. C. R. Moore (Biarra) and Mrs. E. W. Richard- son (Blackbutt). One son, Mr. Alfred
Thomas Langton, predeceased him by eight years. The late Mr. Langton arriv- ed in Queensland
with his parents from Liverpool, England, in the year before Separation, and went to Rosalie
station. where he was engaged for some time. He was later employed on Cooyar station, and
afterwards went to Aubigny, where he resided for some years . There he was married to Miss
Elizabeth Hayden. The late Mr. Langton engaged in the carrying trade and transported goods into
the Western country, bringing back with him consignments of wool. When Gympie became a
mining field the deceased took the first load of provisions to that area, and subsequently entered
upon mining himself. He stayed at Gympie for two years, but having developed pleurisy he
returned to Toowoomba for a time, later going to Esk, where he took over the Esk Hotel. He
remained as Licensee for about seven years, after which he selected land on Cressbrook Creek,
IBiarra and engaged in general farming. The funeral took place to the Esk Cemetery, Rev. C.
Tunstall conducting the service at the graveside.
Two of the early pioneers of the Toogoolawah district have recently passed away at their homes at
Biarra. Mr. William Stephen Langton died on April 10 at the advanced ago of 85 years. He was
born at Middlesex England and came to Queensland with his parents in the year of 18S9 by the
sailing ship Shackamaxon. His first job in the country was sheepherding for the Kent family on the
Downs at Rosalie. After a time he went to Cooyar and to Toowoomba where he purchased a
horse team and went into the carrying business, then between Ipswich and the western and south
western towns. He selected land on Cressbrook Creek at Biarra over 40 years ago and in 1886
settled down there with his family, and engaged in farming and dairying pursuits, which he
successfully carried on until a few years ago when he had to give up active work. He is survived by
a brother, Mr Thomas Langton of Oakey, and his widow, two sons and two daughters - Charles
Martin, of Biarra, William James, of Gilla, Mrs Richardson, of Gilla and Mrs C Moore of Biarra. A
Mr George Taylor, a neighbour of the late Mr Langton ... - [Ex The Brisbane Courier Friday 11
June 1926]
In memory of my dear husband and our father, William Steven Langton, who /passed away on
April 30, 1926.
We do not forget him, nor do we Intend.
We think of him dearly, and will to the end;
He silently suffered and patiently bore,
Till God called him home to suffer no more.
Inserted by his sorrowing wife (Elizabeth Langton), Biarra, and family. - [Ex The Brisbane Courier
Saturday 30 April 1927]

Thomas (who pre-deceased him) and for the son of his son Charles Martin (who may have been of
unsound mind leading up to his suicide) [Ex The Brisbane Courier Thursday 26 March 1931]
