  • Archibald Munro and Duncan Munro immigrated to Queensland around 1862. According to newspaper articles and Archie's obituary they arrived together in 1862, when Duncan was only 18 years old. A third brother John and possibly Hugh the eldest of the Munro brothers, also came to Queensland, a few years later John's obituary gives 1866 as his arrival year in Queensland. Family hearsay has it that Hugh, who inherited their father's title and estate returned to Scotland while the other three remained at Geham and Toowoomba.4
  • At the age of 60 years, Archibald Munro married Catherine Black, the daughter of David Black and Annie McCullock, in 1894 in Queensland.5,6
  • In 1901 After his elder brother Hugh's death Archie was next in succession for the entailed estate. However he obtained permission to have the estate disentailes and sold the lands of Barnaline & Altacaberry in 1902.7

  • Archibald Munro died on 7 July 1912 in Baroona, Campbell Street, Toowoomba, Queensland, at age 78. He died from typhoid and was buried the same afternoon.1,3,4
  • He was buried on 7 July 1912 in Drayton & Toowoomba Cemetery. PRES2-003-0009.1
  • The following article appeared in the The Darling Downs Gazette :- "It will come as a great shock to many in the community to learn that Mr Archibald Munro, of "Baroona" Campbell-street, died yesterday morning and was buried yesterday afternoon. There were few in the community who were aware that Mr. Munro was ill but it appears that he had been ailing with typhoid for some time and as stated died from the effects of the illness yesterday, at the ripe old age of 78 years. Mr. Munro, who was born in Scotland, came to Queensland when a young man with his brothers Duncan and John, and the well known timber firm of A. and D. Munro was established. Although many difficulties and hard ships were experienced at the outset, the Munro's steadily battled on and the great mills at Toowoomba, Cooyar and Killarney stand as a monument of their great perseverance. Although of a retiring disposition , the late Mr. Munro took a keen interest in public affairs and for a number of years was an Alderman in Toowoomba' City . He leaves a widow and two brothers, Duncan and John to mourn their loss. Notwithstanding the shortness of the announcement a number of representative citizens followed the remains to their last resting place. The City Council was represented by Mayor A. Maves and Ald. H G Webb. Rev. J. J. Lundie B.A.. officiated at the grave side"
