Goulburn Evening Penny Post          Thu. 30 June 1881    p2

AN old and well known member of the Goulburn police force, named George Wyatt, died in the hospital on Sunday last. In the early days of settlement in this district he was coachman to Mr. J. R. Styles of Reevesdale, near Bungonia, and afterwards he was gith Mr. J. S. Futter of Lumley. Subsequently he was twenty years in the Goulburn police, and for some time was lockup-keeper at Wingello. He always bore a good character.
About seven years ago he was superannuated on a pension of 4s 4d per day, and for a long time past he has resided near the hospital.
Old age seemed to have been creeping on him for a long time, and being seventy two years there was no wonder. He was taken to the hospital on Saturday last and immediately attended by Dr. Morton ; but he was then rapidly sinking, and died next day. Deceased was an Englishman and a member of the English church. He leaves a widow but no family. He was buried yesterday afternoon in the Church of England cemetery, his remains were followed to the grave by all the police not immediately on duty, as a mark of respect to an old comrade; and thus has passed away another of the early residents of Goulburn.
