Richard Rutledge (1810–1887)

Another old identity has gone the the way of all flesh in the person of Mr. Richard Rutledge, who expired at his residence near Dennington on Monday last. The deceased attained the ripe age of 77 years, many of which were spent in this district, and was uncle to Messrs. F. F. and W. R. Rutledge, proprietors of the far-famed Farnham Survey.
