":By a wide circle of friends the news of the death early yesterday morning, of Mr Robert Ken, who for 43 years was traveller for Messrs John Hollway and Sons, will be received with sincere regret. A native of Glasgow, he came to Victoria with his parents in 1854. They settled at Buninyong, where Mr Kerr’s early days were spent. For many years he had resided in Ballarat and only recently retired from his position as traveller.
