Description :

Portrait of G. Deane from Lake Hope from the S.A. Northern Pioneers' composite, 1850-1859 (shown in position on B 6912/1).

Lake Hope station was recorded as jointly held by Bedford Hack and Henry Dean and Sir Thomas Elder  in 1861. They also held the lease for Manuwaukaninna station. Despite large stock holdings (21,000 sheep are recorded as being shorn in one season) the stations were unprofitable with Dean and Hack earning little more than their own livelihoods. The two stations were amalgamated in 1872 into Elder's Beltana property.

In an editorial in the Register entitled "The Far North" on 2 March 1860, page 2d it is said, inter alia, "... the lake discovered by the Stuckey brothers... if we retained the native name we should call it Lake Pando". Lake Hope is east of Lake Eyre.

G. Deane may possibly be related to Henry Dean or his brother William, if a mistake in the spelling of his name is allowed. No information has been located about G. Deane.
