Andrew Carnduff
1833 - 1916

Married in Ayr Scotland, 23 November 1855

(the information below is from the obituary section of a local Australian newspaper, dated July 1916) ..
Mr. Andrew Carnduff, who in the early seventies and eighties was a well known and highly popular tobacconist, carrying on business in Pall Mall, died at his residence, Carpenter-street, on Saturday at the advanced age of 88 years. For the past nine months the deceased gentleman had been an invalid, and death resulted from a general breaking up of the system. The late Mr. Carnduff was of a retiring disposition, and took no active part in public affairs, but he was widely known and highly respected and esteemed for his many admirable qualities. One of his daughters (Mrs. Stanbridge) resides in Bendigo. Born in Kilmarnock, Scotland, in 1833, the late Mr. Carnduff, when a youth went to Ayr and there learned the manufacture of tobacco, which experience was of great use to him in his later business career. He left Scotland and arrived with his wife and two children in Melbourne in 1863 in the sailing ship Clara. On arrival, Mr. Carnduff went to Ravenswood, and shortly afterwards came to Bendigo, where, like most of the old pioneers, he had a hard struggle, and living in a tent, had to turn his attention to various things before he could get a footing in the new country. Messrs.Black and Smith had been trying to manufacture tobacco from locally grown leaf, but with indifferent success, there being little sale for it. Mr. Carnduff tried to sell it for them at the corner of Pall Mall and Bull-street on different occasions. He also travelled in the country districts and visited various mining camps, but owing to some fault in the leaf there was very little sale for the tobacco. Messrs. Black and Smith gave the machinery to Mr. Carnduff, and he carried on the manufacture in Bridge-street for a considerable time. After studying and trying different methods he ultimately gave it up. Later he carried on business as a tobacconist in View-street and at Bath Corner.
Mr. Carnduff .then established a successful business at No. 4 Pall Mall,which he carried on for many years. Being compelled by ill-health to retire from business in 1897, he afterwards resided quietly at St.Kilda,and later at Brighton.About four years ago he had a serious illness, and on slightly recovering he longed to see Bendigo once more, and came back, the change being very beneficial. He was able to be about the city a few times, when he met many old friends, and was much pleased at the warm reception given him. His health again failing, he was compelled to live quietly at his home. A serious illness confined him to his bed for the last nine months, and he passed peacefully away on Saturday at 1 p.m., firmly trusting in the work of his Redeemer. When in health he took his share in the upbuilding of the City, of Bendigo. He was an old member of the old St. Andrew's Society, and as set forth in the "Annals of Bendigo," he ably took his part in the production of amateur theatricals in company with the late Mr.Angus Mackay, Sir John M'Intyre, and others of his time, raising considerable sums of money for charitable and educational purposes.
While in indifferent health, he travelled twice round New Zealand and Queensland. When he retired from business he had a pleasant trip home to his native land, renewing many friend ships. Whilst living at St. Kilda, he still kept up his interest in Bendigo in a practical manner, paying heavy calls in several mines for over 20 years, and reciving no return whatever. The late Mr. Carnduff had a deep and strong love for his native land, and not a few of his own countrymen who had missed their way were quietly helped on in the battle of life, to better things by him. Mrs. Carnduff died in 1888. He leaves two daughters, an adopted daughter and several grandchildren, of whom Lance-Corporal L.Osborne is now at the front, and Miss Ivy Osborne, who resides in Bendigo, Miss Murray Carnduff is his adopted daughter, who had been with him for 28 years. During his last long illness she was with the help of his grand-daughter, Miss Doris Martin, of Kennington, his sole nurse. The other grand-children resident in Bendigo are Mrs. Martin Downey, of Roslyn-street and Mrs. N. Rennet, of Lilac-street.
