History

The firm was established by Price Maurice, a pastoralist, who arrived in South Australia aboard the 'Calab Angas' in 1840. He was associated with sheep runs at Pekina, Oladdie, Warrow, Lake Hamilton, and Bramfield on the Port Lincoln Peninsula. In 1870, Price Maurice (1818 - 1894) introduced the Angora goat into Australia and bought Castambul Station in the Mount Lofty ranges for the purpose. In 1874 he took up Mount Eba Station. Later he returned to England for health reasons, leaving Clement Sabine as manager of Price Maurice Estate.
