Quick Reference

(1819–1901) founded the Colonial Sugar Refining Co. in 1855. Born in Denmark and trained in commerce, he migrated to Australia in 1840, intending to become a pastoralist. He worked in various businesses, including the Australian Sugar Co., whose liquidation allowed the establishment of CSR. Under Knox's chairmanship the company established a number of refineries, and an extensive supply of sugar cane to dominate the Australian industry. Knox was a director of many of the companies and chairman of the Commercial Banking Company of Sydney. He was a leader in the establishment of staff provident funds and was active in the committees of many charitable organisations. He handed over management of CSR to his son Edward William in 1880 but remained chairman for another 21 years.
