Mr. John Leitch MacKinlay, who had lived in New Zealand for upwards of half a century, died in Wellington last night. The deceased gentleman was 80 years of age, and was born in Glasgow, where his father was a merchant and shipowner. Young MacKinlay was educated at the University in his native city, and shortly after leaving that institution he sailed for Australia in a vessel which he and a bosom friend had purchased. Arriving at Melbourne, they sold the craft, and tried their luck on the gold diggings at Bendigo and Ballarat.
Mr. MacKinlay then came over to New Zealand, settling in Auckland, where he spent many years. About fourteen years ago he removed to Wellington. On Monday morning last he underwent an operation at a private hospital in the city, and was getting on nicely until last night when he collapsed, and died. The late Mr. MacKinlay, who was of artistic tastes, has left a widow and a family of five sons and two daughters. The only son living in Wellington is Mr. Archibald MacKinley, of the firm of Muir and MacKinlay, photographers.
