Social History

Beaumont, Edward Armes (1842–1913)

Mr. Edward Armes Beaumont, the finest tenor singer Australia has produced, and whose name 25 years ago was a household word throughout the Commonwealth, died at his residence, Flemington road, North Melbourne, at an early hour yesterday morning. For some weeks past his health had been failing, and his advanced age, 72 years, made his death not quite unexpected. His sister, Mrs. J. H. Fox (also a well-known singer), with whom he had been living, and to whom he was greatly attached, died a few weeks ago, and her demise undoubtedly hastened his end.
