Who was James McIntosh?

The following report was given in the News of the Day in the Sydney Morning Herald of July 6 1885 (p7)
INFORMATION has been forwarded to Mr J Shiell, JP, City Coroner, to the effect that James M'Intosh foreman in the employ of Messrs Wright, Heaton and Co, died on Tuesday night from injuries which he received through being thrown from a horse on the 6th instant. Deceased, who resided at No.12, Walker-street, Redfern, is stated to have left a wife and a numerous family. An inquest will doubtless take place.

JAMES MACINTOSH, 49 years of age, foreman at Messrs Wright, Heaton and Co's Redfern, and residing at No.12, Walker-street, was thrown from his horse in Castlereagh-street, Redfern, at about 6pm on Monday last. Two men, named Albert Lorain and Harry Bradley, who witnessed the occurence, at once picked him up, and carried him into Messrs Wright, Heaton and Co's yard, which was near at hand. Dr Markey was called in, but the unfortunate man had sustained such injuries that he died at his residence, where he had been removed, at 5.30pm on Tuesday last. Dr Markey, in his memo to the coroner, stated that he considered a post-mortem examination should be held. An inquest will probably be held to-day.

James' death does not appear to have been registered and no death or funeral notices appear for him. The Herald did not report the finding of an inquest (if it was held) for him over the next week.

Does anyone know who James may be?

Note: The death of a John McIntosh was registered at Redfern in 1885: No.5657 son of Ewan and Isabella McIntosh. Was this "James"?

Who were Mr and Mrs McIntosh?

The Colac Herald, August 7 1888 (p2), reports under Notes and Events:
A Mr and Mrs M'Intosh, of Fitzroy, have been appointed as steward and matron of the Colac Hospital, and will commence duties on the 15th instant. Both have had considerable experience from well-known medical gentlemen.
Do not have record of a McIntosh family in the Colac region at this time, other than graziers and farmers who unlikely to be this couple. Can anyone help identify them?

EVAN MACKINTOSH

NAA Description: Commonwealth Scholarship and Fellowship plan students - Evan Mackintosh

Dated: 1968

The Commonwealth Scholarship and Fellowship Plan (CSFP) is an international programme under which Commonwealth governments offer scholarships and fellowships to citizens of other Commonwealth countries*.

Evan is not a common name in Australian Mackintosh families and this Evan would be a grandson of the ones we have in the Archives.

Anyone know Evan?

David Mackintosh

NAA Description: Former Scottish businessman David Mackintosh migrated from Grenoch to Perth, Western Australia, four years ago because high income tax was leaving him little profit. Now working as a labourer on building projects, David earns an average 17 Pounds Australian for a 40 hour week. He said that to equal this in his own business in Scotland, he had to work up to 12 hours a day and seven days a week. David mixes cement on the site of the Games village, which will provide 150 new homes for visiting athletes.

Date 1962

What happened to David after the Games Village was completed? Did he stay or did her return to the UK? Anyone know?
