Archer, Thomas Chalmers (1840–1890)

Our Longford correspondent writes on Tuesday: Mr Thomas Chalmers Archer, formerly of Woolmers, died at his lodgings, Blenheim Hotel, this morning, at about ten minutes past six o'clock, in his 50th year. Deceased, who had been in failing health for several months past, was attended for a time by both Drs. Haines and Hill, but latterly by Dr. Haines only. He appeared to be unconscious, excepting at slight intervals, since last Tuesday night, and was gradually sinking for several days, so that the sad event was not at all unexpected. At the request of the relatives Dr. Maddox visited Mr Archer yesterday morning, but could not hold out any hopes of his recovery. Deceased leaves a widow (sister to Mr John C. Cathcart, actuary of the Launceston Savings Bank), three sons, and three daughters, the eldest son (Mr Thomas Archer) being engaged in the office of Messrs Douglas, Collins, and Davis, the well-known solicitors. Mr Archer's name was inserted in the commission of the peace, May 15, 1866. He had therefore been a magistrate for nearly 24 years, but seldom took a seat on the Bench. The funeral takes place on Thursday afternoon at four o'clock.
