A VETERAN ISLANDER.

Death of Mr. John Buick

Mr. John Buick, "the grand old man of Kangaroo Island," died at American River this week in the ninety- second year of his age. For many years he and the late Mr. Angus Reeves, of Kingscote, shared the distinction of being the oldest settlers on the island, the latter having preceded Mr. Buick as an insular resident by about two years.

Mr. John Buick, who was a sturdy son of Scotia, was born at Montrose, on May 16, 1822. He had lived on Kangaroo Island for 60 years, and had a most interesting and varied career. His father was a builder, farmer, and manufacturer of farming implements. The farm, a mile outside of Arbroath, was the scene of Mr. Buick's earliest labours. A prouder youngster than he was not to be found in the land on the day when he was first given a team of horses to drive in the harrows. After a couple of years on the farm, he decided that the blue, bounding sea was the place for him, and forthwith entered the merchant service as an apprentice. Four years in that position was followed by 12 months before the mast.

Then his brother, the carpenter and first mate on another vessel, died in the West Indies. His tools were returned home, and on their arrival Mr. Buick acquired them and secured employment in a Forfarshire dockyard as a ship and boat builder. At the end of four years he joined his uncle's ship Flora, at Liverpool, in the combined capacities of carpenter and second mate. On the return of the vessel from the Baltic, Mr. Buick spent a short period in the Arethusa, and afterwards joined the brig Malcolm, of 300 tons. She conveyed a general cargo to Rio de Janeiro, loaded coffee and cocoa at Bahia, in Brazil, and then came to South Australia for orders. That was in 1844. From Port Adelaide, the vessel proceeded to Sydney, but Mr. Buick had disembarked, and remained in South Australian territory for the remainder of his life, with credit to the State and to himself.

—Boat, Punt, and Bridge Building.—

He had not been on shore many hours when he was engaged to cut mangrove boat knees near Port Adelaide. After he had been occupied in that pursuit, for a month he was commissioned by Mr. Bell to construct at Wellington a punt for the conveyance of sheep and cattle across the River Murray. At the completion of the undertaking he returned to the Port and became a boat builder and ship repairer. That was followed by another trip to the Murray on behalf of Mr. Scott, who had contracted with the Government to build a punt at Wellington. On the way back to the metropolis Mr. Buick and his assistants stayed overnight at Warland's Hotel, on the Onkaparinga. During the evening a mounted trooper handed to Mr. Buick a despatch, in which the Government instructed him to erect a bridge at Langhorne's Creek. His companions, however, were bent upon spending a week in the city, and after a vigorous discussion it was decided to adopt that course. At the end of the seven days the men proceeded to the creek and built the bridge.

Mr. Buick then resumed his old trade at the chief seaport, and for years did all the Marine Board's carpentery work. Then the Government offered him the position of master shipwright, which he held for a couple of years; but, finding that he could secure better results from a financial point of view as a private employer, he resigned, and went on his own account again.

—Kangaroo Island, Ahoy!—

Anxious to secure a first-class cutter, Mr. Ranford, of Port Adelaide, engaged him to build a 46-ton boat. Accordingly in January, 1854, Mr. Buick, with his wife and three children, set out for Kangaroo Island, and landed at Point Buick, where Mr. Buick resided ever after. Assisted principally by his brother, he built the vessel on the foreshore in front of his cottage. As it approached completion he and his wife resolved that they could not do better than "go on the land." The decision was partially influenced by the fact that during her residence on the island Mrs. Buick's health had improved materially.

"At that time," remarked Mr. Buick when telling the story several years ago, "there were about only 50 people on the whole island, and our nearest neighbour was miles away. The timber and bush which covered the country did not present an inviting aspect: but, determined to do or die, I obtained a lease from the Government, and promptly began clearing for cultivation. The soil is alluvial, with a clay bottom, and will grow practically anything. Wheat and barley were the first grains I sowed, and the clean up produced between 30 to 40 bushels to the acre. Each year I in- creased the cultivated area. I have had magnificent cereal crops, but the best returns were 75 bushels of Cape oats and 50 bushels of barley to the acre. As my sons grew into manhood, however, I did less and less farming, and since 1894 I have not done any at all."

—A Fine Orchard.—

Mr. Buick was an enthusiastic and expert horticulturist. Sixty years ago he prepared ground to the rear of his house, and four years later he planted it with various fruit trees, which made rapid headway. Then two or three dry seasons in succession killed the apricot trees, but the others throve, and to-day the trunks of some measure 2 ft. in diameter. They have borne tons of delicious fruit, which has won a reputation, not only throughout the island, but on the mainland as well. The birds showed appreciation of the dainties by feasting upon the best of the fruit; and, notwithstanding devices to combat them, destroyed vast quantities each year. Recognising the hopelessness of the battle, Mr. Buick conceived the idea, which succeeded admirably, of establishing a new garden, 100 yards from the old one. As he briefly explained—"Seeing that the feathered pests and the opossums had the upper hand, I thought if I gave them full freedom to plunder the garden they had frequented for years, they would, perhaps, overlook another nearby. Experience showed that my judgment was correct. I planted the new garden with trees similar to those in the other about 1894, and some of the crops have been wonderful. I have also grown magnificent vegetables."

Mr. Buick used to dig over his two acres once every year, and in parts twice. He attributed the good general health of himself and wife to the fact that they did all their own work, and "had no time to be ill."

—Descendants.—

Mr. Buick married, before he went to the island, a daughter of the late Mr. Stephen Filmer, who had come to South Australia in the ship Lloyds in 1838. The widow is now 88 years of age. There was a family of 16 children, of whom 11, survive, and there are about 30 grandchildren and several great-grandchildren.

Biographical details and photographs of Mr and Mrs Buick are in the Observer, 25 February 1905, pages 24-36a; also see Register, 22 February 1905, page 6e, 26 January 1907, page 10f, 29 April 908, page 7a, 16 May 1912, page 6e:

Mr. Buick went to Kangaroo Island in 1854 following his arrival in the Malcolm in 1844. He was accompanied by his wife and, after landing, they built a brush house which with a tent formed their abode in the first instance. Then a wooden dwelling was built and, finding that his wife who was in delicate health, was so much benefited by the climate, he decided upon making the island his home. Life on the island in the early days was exceedingly rough and the mails contained in mailbags and consisting mainly of newspapers, were delivered only once in six months. Being a shipwright by trade he was, two years after arrival, commissioned to build a cutter which was named the Kangaroo, of 36 tons. The timber used for the frame of the craft was cut by him from the shores of the river, and the cutter may well be remembered by old Portonians as a regular trader to Yankalilla and Second Valley.

His obituary appears in the Register, 13 March 1914, page 7d. (reproduced above)

GRAND OLD PIONEER.

MR. JOHN BUICK, OF KANGAROO ISLAND.

Kangaroo Island's oldest European resident-- Mr. John Buick, of American River-- will to-day celebrate the 90th anniversary of his birth. He was born in Montrose, Scotland, on May 16, 1822, and previous to leaving the land of his birth followed the occupation of shipwright. He arrived at Port Adelaide ,in the ship Malcolm, in January, 1844, and during the following year went to Kangaroo Island. His 58 years continuous residence there justly entitles him to be termed the 'Grand Old Man of the Island.' Mr. Buick sailed all round the island before determining to settle where he now resides. He was accompanied by his wife, now in her 87th year (who arrived in this State in the ship Lloyds, in December, 1838).

After having landed Mr. and Mrs.Buick built a brush house, which was in turn superseded by a wooden structure, and then a comfortable stone residence, which the old couple occupy at present. Life on the island in those early days was exceedingly rough, with crude diet and heavy work. Not withstanding all drawbacks, however, a considerable area of land was cleared for farming and grazing purposes, and this was in after years occupied by two of their sons. During these preliminaries of occupation news from the mainland and elsewhere was received only once in six months, and the mails, consisting principally of newspapers, were carried in flourbags.

About two years after settlement at American River, Mr. Buick was commissioned to build a cutter of 36 tons, which was appropriately named the Kangaroo. The timber used for the frame of the craft was cut by him from the shores of the river, and the cutter will be remembered by old Portonians as a regular trader to Yankalilla and Second Valley. 'Since then,' the old pioneer says, . by dint of hard work, I have managed to rub along pretty well.' Such a thing as idleness was,' and even now is, never known to him. The only day of the week he disliked was Sunday, because from his strictly Scotch observance of it he had to refrain from manual labour. He is a worker in every sense of the word. Having an idea that the soil and climate were suitable to the growth of fruit, he cleared two acres of land several years ago, and trenched and planted, it with apples, pears, plums, apri cots, and a few orange trees. He digs the two acres once, and some portions twice a year. The apple trees, which include the best varieties, are as a rule heavy bearers, and their branches need the support of props. All the fruit is gathered by Mr. Buick, and stored by him for disposal.

This grand old man when visited a few weeks since, was as hale and hearty and as busy as ever. His midday meal was thoroughly enjoyed, in spite of the fact that, he has no teeth. "I have been without them for so long,' he said, that I don't feel the want of them, for my gums have become so hard that I can crack and masticate biscuits or an apple as well as, if not better than, most people many years younger than myself." Moderate smoking is his only indulgence. He but seldom leaves his home, even to visit his desce dants, who are numerous, on the eastern half of the island. Not many years ago he refused to be tempted to revisit Adelaide for a fortnight's holiday, notwithstanding that the late Sir Robert Thomas offered to send a motor car to Cape Jervis for the conveyance of himself and his wife to the city. Although in seclusion the old couple have numerous friends and visitors and nearly all excursionists to American River make a point of calling upon them. The grand old couple can lay claim to many direct descendants, 11 of whom are now living. Eight were born on the island, and six are still resident there.
