Stubbs, Thomas (1802–1878)

One of the oldest and best-known business men in Melbourne, Mr Thomas Stubbs, died on Saturday at St. Kilda. Mr Stubbs, whose career as an auctioneer dated almost from the foundation of the city, was a celebrity in his day, and his name will not easily be forgotten. In business circles, states the Argus, he was much esteemed for his kindly and genial disposition. He died at the ripe age of 75.
