Small, Timothy (1835–1911)

from Northern Star (Lismore, NSW)

The death at Ryde on February 15 of Mr. Timothy Small, at the age of 77 years, removes the last but one of four sons of the late Mr. Thomas Small, sen., of whom the deceased was the youngest. The survivor is Mr. Samuel Small, of Balmain, aged 85. To the father, who was a pioneer of this State, some interesting history attaches. He it was who built a schooner at Ryde and in it discovered the Clarence River, where he cut the first cedar brought thence to Sydney. He landed at what is now the town of Maclean. Mr. Thomas Small was also the owner of Swan-hill station, on the Northern Rivers, which he stocked with cattle brought from Ryde and from the Murrumbidgee. At Ryde he owned extensive property, some of it close to what is now the centre of the town. Mr Timothy Small's grandfather on the maternal side (Mr James Squire), who arrived in Australia by the first fleet, first cultivated hops in Australia, and established the first brewery in this continent, on a site whereon Mrs. Watson, of Ryde, now lives. Mr Timothy Small is survived by his widow, four sons, two daughters, 25 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. His funeral, which was largely attended, took place on Thursday last, in St. Anne's Church Cemetery, Ryde.
