William James Carter married Carolyn Hunt. William James Carter was born circa 1836. He is thought to be born in Tasmania but does not show on the indexes.
William James Carter died in 1904 at Tarrington Station, Hamilton, VictoriaG.
Another of the old pioneers has been removed from our midst in the person of Mr. William James Carter, of Tarrington. The deceased gentleman was the second son of the late Mr. Charles Carter, formerly of Rosebrook Station. He was born in Tasmania, and arrived in Melbourne with his parents in 1838, being then two years old. In 1842 the family removed to Horsham, where they acquired the North Brighton estate, and when the three brothers, Samuel, William and John, came to man's estate they carried on business in partnership as graziers on a large scale, owning Rosebrook, Brim Spring, North Brighton, Walmer, Pine Plains and Wartook. In 1884 the brothers dissolved partnership, and the deceased retained North Brighton as his share, which he sold in 1888, having two years previously purchased the Tarrington estate, where he resided to the time of his death. Mr. Carter had always been a lover of horses, and was a regular exhibitor at the P. and A. Society's shows. In former years he took considerable interest in public affairs, and was a member of the Wimmera Shire Council for some time. He had been enjoying good health until 11 years ago, when he began to suffer from diabetes. About two months ago (says the Hamilton Spectator) deceased met with an accident by falling from his buggy, from the effects of which he never wholly recovered. He leaves a widow and six children, two sons and four daughters, to mourn their loss.

Her obituary reads as: Our obituary notice to-day contains the news of the death of a very old colonist, and the first white woman who ever came to the Wimmera. Mrs. Thomasina Matthews Carter, at the patriarchal age of 91 years, passed peacefully away to a well-earned rest on Sunday. She died at Rosebrook homestead attended by all her four surviving children. viz: Mrs. Robertson, of Skene, Mrs. Elliott, of Brim Springs, Mr. Samuel Carter, of Walmer, and Mr. William Carter, from Tarrington, Hamilton. The deceased lady with her husband and family arrived in the Horsham district from Tasmania on August 10th, 1843, to settle at North Brighton, and endured, to the full extent all the hardships, privations and dangers incidental to the settler's life in the midst of the blacks in those early days. She was accustomed, when the men were away engaged further afield in the bush, to hold the homestead — a log hut loopholed for Musketry fire, and with always a plentiful supply of boiling water for the inimical blacks — sometimes with one of her sons, but frequently without any male protector, and very often she has donned masculine attire and laden herself with provision to take up to the men-folk away at work on the ranges. Her husband — Mr Charles Carter died in 1875. Ailing, with scarcely any other defined disease but extreme old age, she was found to be failing on Friday and Dr. Cross who was then called in to attend her, announced that the end was near and her children were promptly summoned. Up to the last she seemed to understand what was said or read to her, and her last words assured her people who were gathered round her that she was in "no pain." The funeral will leave Walmer (where the remains were to brought this morning) at 2.30p.m. to-day and will pass through Horsham on the way to the cemetery about 3.15 o'clock this afternoon.
