Herbert Cochrane Suttor (1850–1939)

The death occurred of Mr. Herbert Cochrane Suttor, 88, a member of one of the pioneer families of the western districts at his residence Brucedale, Peel. He was born at Brucedale and except for several years spent on a Lachlan and Darling property, as a young man, lived at Brucedale all his life. Mr. Suttor was one of the earliest members of the Bathurst Agricultural Association, and a former president of the Turf Club. In later years he was its patron. He was on the committee of Bathurst District Hospital, the first president of the Tulon Shire Council and one of the best-known merino breeders in the west.

Mr. Suttor married a cousin, a daughter of John Bligh Suttor, who died 10 years ago. He is survived by three sons - Claude Herbert (Dubbo), Roy Cuthbert (Brucedale), and Maurice Ronald (Coonabarabran) - and four daughters - Miss Suttor (Brucedale), Mrs. C. W. Manning (Dunkeld, Bathurst), Mrs. F. D. Cox (Sydney), and Mrs. J. Robertson (Blarney, Bathurst).
