Henty, Thomas (1775–1839)

We regret exceedingly to see recorded in the Launceston papers the death of Mr Henty Sen. From several years personal knowledge of that gentleman, we may safely say, that, in him, the colony has lost a highly respectable and enterprising settler, and society a true and perfect model of an English country gentleman of the old school. We sincerely sympathise with his family and friends on his loss, which is the more to be lamented as he has not lived to see Portland Bay — the child of his adoption — rise into that maturity, which it is now apparently about to attain.
