Roberts, Thomas (1807–1858)

It is this week our painful province to record the demise of Thomas Roberts, Senr. Esq., of Exeter Farm, South Creek, who expired at his residence, Parramatta, on Wednesday morning last in his 48th year, after a protracted illness. The deceased gentleman was during many years a zealous promoter of turf pursuits, with the legitimate view of improving colonial stock, and his premature removal from amongst us in the prime of life, is much to be deplored.
