Tait, John (1843–1934)

The death occurred in Melbourne on July 8 of Mr. John Tait, aged 91 years. He was born at Parramatta (N.S.W.) and was the second son of the late Rev. John Tait, of Geelong, one of the leaders of the early Presbyterian Church of Victoria and clerk of the Presbyterian Assembly, in which he was succeeded by another son, the Rev. George Tait.

Mr. John Tait was among the first scholars of Scotch College, Melbourne, and at the time of his death was probably the oldest surviving Scotch Collegian. He is survived by a widow and two sons, Dr. J. Thomson Tait, surgeon, of Collins street, and Mr. J. B. Tait, barrister, of Selbourne Chambers, Melbourne.
