The death occurred at Havilah, Darlinghurst-road, last night, of Mr. Edward Richard Deas-Thomson. He was in the 81st year of his life, and had been ill for only a few days.
Mr. Deas-Thomson was the eldest and only surviving son of the late Sir Edward Deas-Thomson, K.C.M.G., C.B., a former Imperial Colonial Secretary of the Colony before responsible government, who married a daughter of Lieutenant-Gencral Sir Richard Bourke, K.C.B., at that time Governor of the Colony. Mr. Deas-Thomson was educated at Winchester and New College, Oxford, and before his increasing years compelled him to relinquish active work he was keenly interested in church matters. He sat in synod for a number of years, and was for a lengthy period a member of the Chapter of St. Andrew's Cathedral. He was hon. secretary the Carrington Convalescent Hospital at Camden, and of the St. Catherine's Clergy Daughters' College at Waverley.
Mrs. Deas-Thomson, who was a daughter of the late Mr. William Lawson, of Veteran Hall, Prospect, died in 1910, and there was no family. Lieut.-Colonel Grigg, secretary to the Prince of Wales, is a nephew of Mr. Deas-Thomson.
The funeral will take place to-morrow.
