Thomas Hattam Wilkinson (1820–1876)

On Thursday last one of the oldest clergymen of the Church of England in this country, Rev. Thomas Hattam Wilkinson, died at the parsonage, Appin. He was the eldest son of the Rev. Thomas Hattam Wilkinson, formerly incumbent of Ullswater, county Cumberland, England. Many years ago Mr. Wilkinson came out to fulfil the duties of a minister of religion in Australia. He has worthily served the church, and secured the respect of his fellow-colonists by his social virtues and his pious zeal. His funeral takes place this day at Ashfield.
