Seller, Thomas Theophilus (1825–1890)

Another old identity of the Clarence and Richmond district has gone over to the great majority in Mr. Thomas T. Seller of the Crown Hotel Grafton, who died on Tuesday last, and was buried at Maclean the following day. Mr Seller was born at Norfolk Island, where his father held a Government appointment. Mr Seller was for many years on Tomki Station, and subsequently with Mr. G. Sparke on Wooroowoolgen. In conjunction with his brother-in-law, Mr. J. F. Small, sen., he purchased the Newton Boyd Station on the Clarence and after its sale, entered into the hotel business at South Grafton, in the Steam Ferry Hotel, then in the now hotel built by him as Seller's Family Hotel, and subsequently in the Crown Hotel, well known to everyone in the Northern districts. Mr. Seller leaves a widow and family, and all who have experienced the kind attention of Mrs. Seller, will now sympathise with her in this bereavement.
