Kater Family

Archival Resources

This pastoral family dynasty began with Henry Edward Kater, born near Penrith in 1841, the son of Henry Herman and Eliza Charlotte Kater. After working in the Australian Joint Stock Bank, he acquired a cattle station, then established himself as a flour-miller like his father, and then later again, acquired land and established a sheep station with his brother Edward. The brothers would become prominent as well-known and well-respected sheep-breeders. After many years in business with his brother and after serving as director of the Colonial Sugar Refining Company and the Commercial Banking Company of Sydney, Henry dissolved his partnership with Edward in 1906 and went into business with his son Norman.
