James Guy Thomson (1860–1895)

It is with regret we record the death of Mr. Guy Thomson, the eldest son of the late Mr. J. G. Thomson of Brookhampton, who passed away at Brookhampton on Sunday last. Mr. Thomson, who was comparatively a young man being only about 35 years of age, spent the greater part of his life in the North-West where he unfortunately contracted an illness which ultimately caused his death. For many months past he has been a great sufferer his life having been despaired of for some time. The funeral took place in Banbury yesterday. Much sympathy is felt for his bereaved relatives and friends.
