Rotton, Henry (1814–1881)

Our Moruya telegram, in another column, announces the death of Mr. Henry Rotton, formerly member for Bathurst. Mr. Rotton was returned for that constituency soon after the introduction of responsible government, defeating Mr. A. T. Holroyd, the opposing candidate, by a majority of one. At the succeeding election Mr. Rotton was defeated. He then offered himself to the Hartley electors and was successful in his candidature, defeating Mr. Ryan Brennan. Mr. Rotton was a useful member of Parliament, as he was a useful member of the community. For many years he resided on his estate, Blackdown, near Bathurst. He died yesterday morning, at the residence of his son-in-law, Mr. Keightley, police magistrate of Moruya.
