Buttsworth, Richard William (1826–1900)

The death of Mr. Richard William Buttsworth took place at the Glebe Tavern, Glebe, on Monday, at the age of 74 years. The deceased gentleman was an old identity of the Hawkesbury district, where the name of Buttsworth is a well known and highly respected one. We believe the deceased had only one son, who lives at Auburn. The funeral took place on Wednesday, the corpse having been brought to Windsor by the morning train. There it was met by Mr. Thomas Collison's hearse, who had a mourning coach in attendance also for the relatives, a very large concourse of people, from Windsor, Wilberforce, and elsewhere, assembled to pay their last tribute of respect to the deceased, and a long cortege followed the remains to Wilberforce. The interment took place at the Church of England Cemetery, the Rev. W. S. Newton, M.A., officiating, while Mr. Collison was the undertaker.
