      Jan1882 Hillston Public School sought an additional teacher 3B  “Married man be sent and of protestant faithif practicable”.
       
      D.S.Hicks in his report dated 7 Feb 1882 listed six teachers available –
      “Ofthese I think Mr. E.G. Eagar of Narrandera should be selected for appointmentto Hillston and for the following reasons –
      (1)          He has failed to gain by examination theclassification 2B corresponding to his present school.
      (2)          Pupil/Teachers are urgently required in the Narranderaschool,  but the candidates for theoffice prepared by Mr. Eagar failed at examination.
      (3)          In consequence of his unsatisfactory management of theschool,  private schools are thriving bysecuring the children that ought to be attending the Narrandera Public School.
      (4)          The case of the Narrandera School has for many monthsbeen under  consideration but not untilnow have I had an opportunity to suggesting a scheme for effecting the desiredremoval of Mr. Eagar.
      (5)          Of the teachers enumerated Mr. Eagar is the only onewithin anything like reasonable reach of Hillston and his removal thither willthus be the least expensive.
       
      Forwhatever reason Hillston did not take up Hick’s recommendation and a secondlist of potential teachers was draw up

    • Obituary
      The Passing,  in Scone, on Wednesday morning last,  of Mr.Edward George Eagar,  has removed afamiliar figure in the district for upwards of half a century.
       
      A citizen ofstanding,  his life has been one ofusefulness,  commingled with which washis close association  with publicaffairs.
       
      In his 88thyear,  the late Mr. Eagar arrived in Australia from the old country juston  eighty years ago,  and with his parents came his uncle,  the Hon. Sir Geoffrey Eagar K.C.
       
      When quite a lad, the subject of these lines entered the Railway Department,  and when still a young man was in charge ofthe  Bowenfels station.  Of a studious turn of mind,  he retired from the Department and enteredthe Education Department,  and just onhalf a century since had charge of Aberdeen School.  From here, he resolved to go on the land, and had his desire satiated 48 years ago when he went into occupation of“Silverwood” on the Upper Dartbrook,  aproperty he retained up till fifteen years ago, when he went into retirement.  Aman of many parts,  and one alwaysdesirous of giving his best to his district, in 1906 he was appointed a provisional member of the then Woolooma ShireCouncil,  and his seat on that body forseveral terms.  His associates were;  Messrs. H.L.White,  W.E.Abbott, 
       
      L.E.Wiseman andF.A.Parbury,  all of whom have yearssince entered the great beyond.
       
      About the sametime he was appointed to the board of directors of the Scone ButterFactory,  of which he subsequentlyelevated to the position of Chairman.
       
      The deceasedgentleman was also a foundation member of the Scone Masonic Lodge,  which he joined exactly fifty years ago, and right to the last closely identified himself with it and lived up tothe ideals emanating therefrom.  Kindlyspoken,  and a man whose integrity wasbeyond reproach,  he enjoyed the goodwilland affection of a very large circle of friends.
       
      At the memorialservice held in St. Luke’s Church of England yesterday morning,  the Rector (Rev. B.C.Wilson, M.A.),  in an address to the large assemblage paid ahigh tribute to the part he  had playedin the progress and development of the district,  and in referring to his long association withthe Masonic  Lodge,  he remarked that his activities were thethread,  impulse and mainspring thereof.
       
      Scone Advocate 14 May 1937

      Obituary in Scone Advocateincorrectly states that Edward George arrived in Australia in 1857 with hisparents and uncle Hon. Sir Geoffrey Eagar K.C.  It is possible that the author of the obituary confused a return trip toEngland in 1864 aboard La Hogue, returning in 1867 aboard Alexander Duthie.   He was actually born in Sydney.  The uncle referred to was actually FrankAlexander Eagar.  Geoffrey Eagar washis half uncle and was accorded the title “Honourable” for life by theNSW Government,  there is no record of a”Knight Commander” having been conferred,  hence the title Sir should not apply.
