  • Notes 
    • John Boyd was educated at Sydney Boys' High School and Queen's College, St Kilda, Melbourne. He gained proficiency in sheep management around Narrabri and on the family property, Glendon, Wellingrove.

      In 1891 Cramsie became manager of Strathdarr station in western Queensland. As manager of the Longreach Wool Scouring, Extract & Boiling Down Co. from 1896, he built and developed its works at Clear Lagoon and Ilfracombe. On 30 June 1897 at Glendon, New South Wales, he married Jessie Halling McIntyre of Waterloo station. He left Queensland on medical advice and in 1902 with Edward James Comerford set up Comerford, Cramsie & Co., stock and station agents, at Moree, New South Wales, and invested in grazing, individually and in the Willarie Pastoral Co. Extensive travel made Cramsie optimistic on Australia's future and an enthusiast for the meat industry.

      Leaving Moree in 1912 he visited England, Europe and the United States of America to study marketing. On his return in 1914 he began a short-lived meat export business. Next year in Sydney he founded Cramsie & Lethbridge Ltd, stock, station and financial agents.

      He died on 26 November 1944 at his Edgecliff residence and was buried with Presbyterian forms in Waverley cemetery. He was survived by a son and two daughters, to whom he left his estate.
