Nott, Randolph (1822–1906)

One of the best-known figures in the political life of New South Wales in the early fifties passed away on Saturday, in the person of Mr. Randolph Nott. The deceased gentleman, who retired from active business in 1885, was living at Bowral at the time of his death. On Thursday night he complained of pains in the region of the heart, but serious consequences were not anticipated, and, in spite of his advanced age of 84, his death came as somewhat of a surprise. Mr. Nott was born in England, and came to Australia an a young man. In his early career he carried on the profession of an architect, and built some of the finest residences in Edgecliff-road. He afterwards became associated with building societies, and took an active part in the operations of the Permanent Mutual Benefit Building Society. During the fifties Mr. Nott represented Tenterfield in the Legislative Assembly. He leaves a family of two daughters, one of whom is married, and five sons—Messrs. Randolph H. Nott, estate agent; Arthur Ross Nott, of David Jones and Co.; Philip Sydney Nott, of Fisher and Nott, surveyors; J. E. V. Nott, of Thompson and Nott, solicitors; and Ernest Nott, of Nelson and Co., the publishers, New York. The funeral will take place at Bowral this afternoon. Mr. Nott was a very active member of the Congregational Church, having been interested in the organisation of the Pitt-street Church from the time of its opening, and subsequently in the work of the churches at Woollahra, Burwood, and Strathfield.
