Huxley, James Thomas (1849–1925)

from Nepean Times (NSW)

With the death of Mr James Thomas Huxley (says "Windsor and Richmond Gazette") another link with the early days of New South Wales has been snapped. Born at Pitt Town 76 years ago, he was a member of a notable Hawkesbury family and a descendent of Huxley, the philosopher. After residing at Raymond Terrace and Dungog, Mr Huxley was for many years in business in Penrith, of which town he was an alderman. His grandfather acquired land near Sans Souci, his property being known as Tom Huxley's Point, called by the aboriginals "Tom Ugly's Point," as it is known to this day.
