Biography contributed by Faithe Jones

The late William Frederick Bloore, who died on Friday night last at his late home in Sydney, was 62 years of age. He was born on the island of Mauritius and came to New South Wales with his parents when about six years of age. His father first went to Eagleton as a school teacher, and then he came to Dungog, where he was stationed for very many years. He was one of the grand old pioneering teachers, a type that is not now found. The late William F. Bloore entered the Bank from Dungog and had  been in different parts of the State since that time.
A widow, one son, Bruce, and three daughters, Mrs. Blythe (Leila), Berenice and Eleanor ('Pat.') survive. Mrs. John Lean (Dungog), Mrs. Pulver (Sydney) and Mrs. Allworth (Kempsey) are sisters.

News has been received of the death of Mr William Frederick Bloore, of The Point-road, Woolwich, afed 62 years. Deceased was the son of the late Mr. F W Bloore, formerly headmaster of East Maitlaid Superior Public School, and for many years  Headmaster of Dungog Public School. Deceased was a native of Mauritius, but came to Australia when about six years of age and spent his boyhood at Eagleton and Dungog. He entered service of the Bank of New South Wales at Dungog, and later was stationed at  Newcastle, West Maitland, Kyogle, and Crookwell, prior to his retirement. He is survived by his wife and three daughters, and three sisters, Mesdames John Lean, of Dungog, L W. Allworth of Kempsey, and Pulver, of Sydney.
