M’INTYRE, Captain - D21/9/1888 - DEATH OF A WIGTOWNSHIRE MAN IN AUSTRALIA - The Melbourne Argus of 21st September, says: - The obituary of "The Argos" of this day contains the announcement of the death of Captain Andrew M'Intyre, of the s.s.Beeswing. Captain M'Intyre was one of the oldest master mariners sailing out of Port Philip, his connection with the colony dating as far back as 1853. He arrived in Melbourne in that year as a mate of the Laurena, an Amdercan ship, which was afterwards sunk, and was utilised with others in the formation of the shore end of the Port Melbourne railway pier. His first independent venture was in the brigantine "Montezuma", the property of himself and his brother James. Several years afterwards they purchased the barque "Golden Age", and this was followed by the barques "Wressel Castle" and "Florence Nightingale". Some five years ago Captain M'Intyre went home and purchased two vessels, the "William Le Lacheur" and the "Nicoya". The former he brought out himself. About two years ago he went home again, and purchased the steamer "Beeswing", which he commanded up to the time of his being laid aside by the illness which carried him off. In the purchases of the vessels above mentioned he was associated with Messrs Hugh R. Reid and Co., and the Melbourne Coal Shipping and Engineering Company. Captain M'Intyre was 62 years of age, and of that time he had been nearly 50 years at sea, having been apprenticed when he was barely 13 years of age. While trading to the East some years ago he was seized with a severe fever at Bankok and this illness weakened him considerably. He was quiet and unobtrusive in manner, and was of a very kind-hearted disposition. Captain M'Intyre was a native of Kirkcolm, Wigtownshire, Scotland, and brother of Mr Chas. M'Intyre, late of Logan Mains. The flags of the shipping were at half-mast yesterday as a mark of respect to his memory. The deceased was unmarried. (Obituary from the WFP 22/12/1888)
