Bloxham, Horace Kennedy (1860 - 1928)




Bloxham was an editor of the Central Australian and Bourke Telegraph in the early 1890s. According to the colonial notes section of the New Zealand Tablet he was struck from the roll of magistrates in January 1891 for publishing derogatory comments about the Prince of Wales and the Irish nationalist MP, Charles Stewart Parnell. He published two novels with the NSW Bookstall, The Double Abduction (1910) and On the Fringe of the Never-Never (1906), a tale of pioneering days on the New South Wales frontier, which was praised in reviews for its authenticity and historical accuracy.
