Ham, Thomas (1821–1870)

An old and respected resident of Brisbane, Mr. Thomas Ham, passed away this week. Mr. Ham was for some years in business as an engraver, and since the organisation of a lithographic staff has held the appointment of Government engraver. The pioneer spirit was strong in Mr. Ham; he was amongst the first to take up land upon the Hotham and Albert rivers, where he engaged in cotton and sugar growing. At the time of his decease, he had a plantation at Redcliffe; he had the strongest faith in this country for the production of cotton and sugar, and followed his faith by works. Mr. Ham's genial and unassuming nature won him a large circle of friends, by whom his loss will be severely felt.
