Tompson, Edward (1835–1896)

from Windsor & Richmond Gazette (NSW)

We have to record the death of Edward Thompson, for many years licensee of the Family Hotel, at the corner of George and Goulburn streets, Sydney. Deceased was a native of Richmond, but left that place some 20 years ago to reside at Orange, and from there went to Sydney. He was well-known throughout this district, and was a brother-in-law to Mr W. Gosper, of Macquarie-street. He leaves a grown up family of four daughters and three sons. Deceased took bad about a month ago, and had since suffered intense pain from the effects of a cancer on the liver. It was found necessary on Wednesday last to perform an operation, from which he never again recovered. Doctors Fiaschi, Sydney Jones, and J. Dick assisted in the performing of the operation, whilst every help that was possible by nurses and others was given, but all to no effect. The funeral took place this Friday morning, at Richmond, to which place the body was conveyed by rail at 11a.m.
