THOMAS, Robert Kyffin died 13 June 1910
Few citizens of Adelaide were better known or more highly respected than Sir Robert Thomas, and a sense of personal loss will be felt by a very large circle of friends when they read of his death, which occurred on Monday morning at half-past! 7 at his residence, "Ardington," Brougham place, North Adelaide. Sir Robert, who recently made a tour of the world, returned to Adelaide early this year. He was then apparently in improved health as a result of his holiday, but some weeks later he developed ar ailment which baffled all the medical men who were consulted. The complaint, which was of an internal nature, developed se rapidly that some weeks ago his ordinary routine of work in the office had to be suspended, and for the last fortnight he had been hovering between life and death. He bore up through his trying illness-with characteristic fortitude, but gradually sank until the end came peacefully.
Sir Robert had an hereditary connection with the State which dated right back to its establishment, for his grandfather founded the first newspaper in South Australia, and printed the earliest "Government Gazette." Indeed, he arrived before the province - was proclaimed by Governor Hindmarsh. The family have always held an honourable position, and they rank among the most useful of the pioneers of settlement and progress. Sir Robert was born at Nailsworth, and throughout his active life had always been identified with the city with whose growth and development the people were better acquainted than he. He had a genial nature, which made him always welcome and popular in whatever society he, entered. When at the end of last January he received the honour of knighthood the chorus of congratulation was general and sincere. The distinction was conferred as a special recognition of Sir Robert's work in connection with the recent Press Conference in London, in connection with which he we appointed chairman of the overseas delegate from Australia, New Zealand, an Canada; but his fellow-citizens saw in also a reward for the services rendered by him to his native land in many capacities. His knighthood was the last conferred by King Edward.
Sir Robert was a comparatively young man, having been born as recently as 1851. He had a fine presence, and always appeared to enjoy good health, for he was full of activity as of kindliness. He was a son of the late Mr. William Kyffin Thomas, a former proprietor of the "Register,"' whom he succeeded in a similar capacity. He received his education at Mr. J. L. Young's' Adelaide educational establishment, where the late Right Hon. C- C. Kingston was one of his school fellows. At the age of l8 he entered upon a journalistic career, and while still stripling became chief of the reporting staff. He was admitted as a partner in the firm in 1877, and for the last 33 years had been closely associated with the fortunes of the paper, of which at the time of his death he was the senior proprietor . He was however, not a man of one groove but was always willing to give his help to such institutions and movements as h considered to make for the advancement of the community. He was long connected both with the State branch of the Royal Geographical Society and the Adelaide Chamber of Commerce. He was a member of the council of both bodies, and had filled the office of president in respect to each. He was one of the executive committee which raised funds for the equipment of the Bushmen's Corp and its dispatch to the South African war and he also took a leading part in the movement which resulted in the erection of the handsome national war memorials on North-terrace. Sir Robert was treasurer of the Old Colonists' Association, a trustee of the Wyatt Benevolent Association and president of the Adelaide Glee Club. He took a deep interest in the successful effort to obtain funds for the provision of adequate memorials to Colonel Light the founder of Adelaide, and he was prominent also in the endeavour suitably to honour that splendid explorer Captain Sturt. He had been a justice of the peace for 22 years, and in 1897-8 was a worshipful master of the St. Albai Masonic Lodge. When he returned from England this year he was asked to allow himself to be nominated as Deputy Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of South Australia, and his acceptance was received with satisfaction throughout the craft. At the half-yearly communication, held recently, he was unanimously elected to the position. He entered into all his private and public engagements with a hearty thoroughness, and was never unwilling to do the share of work which fell to his lot. He had a complete knowledge of newspaper work; and few men knew more of the history of Adelaide or of South Australia than he.
Sir Robert was married in 1876 to Amelia, daughter of the late Mr. Robert George Bowen, of Adelaide. Lady Thomas survives, besides three sons and four daughters-Reginald, Geoffrey, and Owen Mrs. Leonard Hack, and Misses Millicent Nota, and Kathleen Thomas. Sir Robert had one surviving brother-Mr. Evan Kyffin Thomas- and six sisters- Mrs George Birks, Mrs. William Neill, Mrs Charles Birks. Mrs. J. Edwin Thomas. Mrs. G. B. Mallam, who for some years has lived in Berkshire, England, and Miss Margaret Thomas.
The bell at the Adelaide Town Hall was tolled and the flags were half-masted on the Town Hall, "The Advertiser" office, and a number of other prominent buildings immediately the sad news became known that Sir Robert had passed away.
A service will be conducted by the Rev. G. H. Jose in Christ Church. North Adelaide, at 3.45 p.m. today, and the funeral cortege will reach the North-road Cemetery at 4.30.
The Chief Secretary (Hon. F. S. Wallis) said last night:-"It was with very deep regret that I heard this morning of the death of Sir Robert Thomas. My acquaintance with him extended over about 33 years, during the first 11 of which 1 was an employees of his, and as such and at one time as also the official head of the companionship, I was brought into close contact with him. In whatever capacity whether as one of the employees or a chapel officer, as an official of the Typographical Society, or latterly as a public man it fell to my lot to have converse with him 1 always considered myself privilaged to be in the company of a gentleman in the truest sense of the word. I know that I can speak for many who were at one time mv fellow-members of the composing staff when I say that there was something of the feeling of affection mingled with the respect with which he was regarded by us all, and I have every reason to believe that I am fully justified in saying the same for the employees since my time."
At a meeting of the Thebarton Council last night it was resolved to send a letter of condolence to the relatives.

THOMSON, Walter died 28 November 1882
Death of Mr. Walter Thomson.— A very large number of colonists, and especially those who have been here for a large number of years, will regret to hear of the death of Mr. Walter Thomson, of O'Halloran Hill, which took place at his residence on Tuesday, November 27. The name of ' Watty Thomson' has been so long and well knownin agricultural circles that it has become almost a household word. It was recognised as that of a successful colonist, who by his energy, shrewdness, and native worth, had raised himself to a position of great respect and authority on certain matters in which his large experience eminently qualified him to give an opinion. Mr. Thomson arrived here forty-four years ago, and during the whole of that time has been chiefly engaged in agricultural pursuits— for the last thirty four years at O'Halloran Hill. Besides this, he has acted as a Government contractor for
the erection of telegraph lines, notably to the Victorian Border, Morgan, and Fowler's Bay, and at much earlier dates he supplied the deepers used in the construction of the Port and Gawler lines of railway. Mr. Thomson for a great number of years was a prominent member of the Committee of the Royal Agricultural and Horticultural Society, and his valued services were frequently called into
requisition as a Judge of ploughing, wheat, grain, &c, not only by that body, but also by many of the country Agricultural Societies.
Mr. Thomson was a man of keen perception, and was endowed with a very large share of sound common sense, which served him in good stead in his business transactions. Besides these more solid qualities he possessed a fund of wit and anecdote which seemed to be inexhaustible, and made him a welcome visitor wherever he went, or in whatever society he might happen to be. About eighteen months ago he suffered from a paralytic stroke, since which time he has been ailing and unable to transact business as of old. On Tuesday he did not appear to be any worse than usual, but in the evening complained of feeling slightly un
well, and had just taken some sodawater, which he thought would relieve him, when he quietly passed away. Mr. Thomson had
sixteen children, thirteen of whom, as well as his wife, survive him. Nearly the whole of his nine sons are engaged in either
agricultural or pastoral pursuits. His remains were interred in the Happy Valley Cemetery on Thursday afternoon.

TURNBULL, James Thomson
On Tuesday last information was received in Adelaide which appeared to justify the belief that Mr. J. T. Turnbull, an old Adelaide resident, had died on the Continent. The cablegram which was received was a peculiarly constructed message and is, was wrongly addressed, so that there appeared to be some doubt at first whether it referred to Mr. Turnbull. Later on, however, news which was regarded as somewhat confirmatory of his demise came to hand, and though up to the present no absolutely
definite intelligence has been received, Mr. W. Little, his attorney, has no doubt that the interpretation placed upon the cablegram was correct. Mr. Turnbull, who was well known is Adelaide as an insurance adjuster and agent for many years left for Scotland eight years ago, and has made several visits to the Continent for the benefit of his health. A letter has just been received from him dated from Nice, so that he seems to have been on one of his periodical visits at the time of his death. The deceased gentleman, who was very well known in Adelaide, was born in Leith, Scotland, on August 28, 1830, and when 26 years of age he came to South Australia.

William Younghusband & Co and in 1865 he was sent to Europe and America on behalf of that firm. Two years later he began business on his own account as an insurance adjuster and agent. In 1882 be entered into partnership with Messrs. J. G. Boothby and W. Little. Mr. Turnbull was for a long time consul for the Netherlands and Italy, and when he visited Italy in 1878 the King decorated him with the Cross of a Chevalier of the Royal Order of the Crown. He was a great traveller. In 1865 he visited England by way of America; in 1873 he went home again through America and Canada, and in 1874 and 1883 be again made trips.

The Advertiser, Wednesday 20 May 1936, page 23
A FRIEND tells me that the late Mrs. Bessie Turner, widow of Joseph Turner, of Blackwood, was a remarkable woman, with whom people loved to converse. At the age of 80 she wrote a book, “The Lust of Gold,” describing the history of her husband’s family. It appears that Joseph Turner, of Manchester, an expert at weaving, was engaged to go to Russia to start the first cotton mills at Tammerfors 100 years ago. Because of envy and intrigue, he had to leave the country. Coming to South Australia with his family, he bought a beautiful valley at Blackwood, and called it “Swinton,” after his birthplace in England. The heavily timbered country was transformed into one of the most productive orchards in the State. The property is held by the third generation of the Turner family
