Whalan, Thomas (1835–1918)

There died on December 18, at his residence, Tarana, an old identity in the person of Thomas Whalan. With the exception of two years, which were spent at The King's School, Parramatta, the late Thomas Whalan lived all his life of 83 years at Tarana. He was closely associated with the early history of Australia, his grandfather having arrived in Sydney many years ago with the late Governor Macquarie as the Governor's A.D.C. Mr. David Whalan, who up to the time of his enlisting was a dentist in the A.M.P. Chambers, is a son of the deceased gentleman.
