Macvitie, Thomas (1781–1833)

Died.-On Sunday evening, at his residence in Elizabeth Street, Hyde Park, Thomas Macvitie, Esq., Managing Director of the Bank of Australia, aged 52 years. Mr. Macvitie was a native of Dumfries, in Scotland, and arrived in this Colony in 1815, with a valuable cargo of merchandise, and continued to transact business as an importing Merchant until his means enabled him to retire from trade. He then accepted the office of Managing Director of the Bank of Australia, in which capacity, as well as in his previous occupation, of a Merchant, he was universally esteemed. Few gentlemen made more friends and fewer enemies than Mr. Macvitie. His widow and family are well provided for.
