GEORGE HENRY COX, son of George Cox of Burrundulla and Mulgoa cont.
George Henry Cox married his cousin Henrietta Jane, daughter of Henry Cox in 1853. They had five sons and seven daughters.
George Henry was well respected in the wool industry and is credited in building the fine, dense and elastic qualities for Mudgee wool, winning many awards in Australia and overseas. For many years he was councilor on the Agricultural Society of NSW and president of the Sheepbreeders’ Association.
His fifth son inherited Burrundulla and his properties at Mudgee, the homestead being a large, two storey brick building with a main staircase lit by stained glass window bearing the Cox crest and monogram. Its living rooms were once adorned with prints of Italian renaissance masters collected in Europe and paintings by Conrad Martens.
George Henry Cox died at Burrundulla on November 28, 1901
