from Pastoral Review, 16 February 1925

A popular figure in Captain Thomas Hutton, long associated with the well-known meat exporting firm of Bergl Australia Limited, proprietors of the Bowen Meat Works, Queensland, died in Sydney on the 16th ult. at the age of 82.

He was born in Fifeshire, Scotland, and was in Australia in command of the Inverary in 1869, and later of the Ione, Cynosure, and Cynisca, the two latter vessels for a number of years being engaged in the wool trade between Sydney and London. Captain Hutton was very successful in bringing out pedigree stock from the Old Country to Sydney in the vessels under his command.

In 1899 he sold the Cynosure and Cynisca, and came out to Australia for Bergl Australia Limited, which was taken over by Houlders Limited about that time. He was chairman of directors of the business until his death, which occurred in a private hospital at Turramurra, Sydney.
