Theophilus Robin (1830–1874)

Mr. Theophilus Robin, merchant, of Adelaide and Port Adelaide, died on Saturday evening, September 19, after only a few days illness. He was well known, and combining with thorough integrity, kindness of heart, and other good qualities, he was much respected, and his death will cause widespread regret, especially amongst the members of the Wesleyan Church at North Adelaide, in connection with which he had been for many years a prominent and an active worker. The deceased gentleman was brother of Mr. James Robin, of Grenfell-street.
