  • 12 Jul 1886: A fatal accident occurred at Berwick on Saturday to Mr T. A. Mouat, J. P., chairman of the South Melbourne Bench. He and his son were going in a buggy to a farm at Berwick, and were taking some bulky goods in the vehicle. To accommodate these, Mr Mouat had a high and very uncomfortable seat. The wheels of the buggy went into a deep rut in the road, and Mr Mouat was thrown out on to his head. He sustained concussion of the brain, and was brought to his residence in Beaconsfield parade, South Melbourne, where he died. Mr Mouat, jun., was not thrown out of the buggy by the jolt, and was able to assist his father.8
  • 24 Jul 1886: THE LATE THOMAS ABERCBOMBIE MOUATT, J.P.
    Very deep regret is expressed for the sad and fatal accident, by which the late respected chairman of the South Melbourne Bench, Mr. Thomas Abercrombie Mouatt, lost his life, on the morning of Saturday, the 1st July at Berwick. Mr. Mouatt, who was one of the oldest residents in this city, had recently taken up a selection of land at Gembrook, with a view to the removal of his family into the country at an early date. On the morning of the accident the deceased gentleman had gone to Berwick by the early, Gippsland train, where he met one of his sons (Archie) and granddaughter. With them he set off for Gembrook in an American wagon, loaded with furniture, remarking to the landlady as he left, that he was "taking up a little furniture with a view to making the house at the farm comfortable for his wife and family whom he intended to bring from South Melbourne in a few months, when the weather got warmer." Councillors J. S. White, of this city is the chairman of the Shire of Berwick, which council met at noon on the Saturday of the accident. On this occasion, Councillor R. J. Mills, accompanied Mr. White to Berwick and on learning that their friend Mr T. A. Mouatt, had arrived from Melbourne by the morning train, went to the hotel to see him. But they were too late, the landlady informing them that the deceased gentleman had only a few minutes before left the, hotel in the wagon with his son. Judge of their painful surprise, when word reached the hotel that the friend whom they had called to see and who had not a quarter of an hour before left the hotel in health, was a corps, having been thrown from the wagon and killed, while descending Cemetery Hill, about half a mile distant.
    Councillors White and Mills at once hurried off to the fatal spot, and assisted to get the body of the old gentleman back to the hotel. It appears that Mr Archie Mouat gave his father the box seat, placing the granddaughter at his side, with the reins in her hand, while he himself led the horse up the hill. On commencing to descend, Archie got up on the near side of the waggon and took the reins from his niece. He had not proceeded far when the off wheel went into a deep rut in the road, throwing Mr. T. A. Mouat off the seat. He struck the road with his head, and was instantly killed.
    With kindly promptitude and in sympathy for the bereaved family, Councillors Mills and White, after having in conjunction with Mr. Gibb (ex-member for Gipps Land) obtained a magisterial inquiry in lieu of an inquest, telegraphed to Mr. T. V. Foot, J.P. (an intimate friend of the deceased) asking him to break the news to Mrs. Mouat and family and prepare them for the reception of the body, as it was their intention to bring the body down to Melbourne in the American waggon.
    We regret to have to say that through an inexcusable error at the South Melbourne branch of the telegraph office, this telegram
    did not reach Mr. Foote till Monday morning. So that the painful scene which it occasioned when the Councillor named reached Mrs. Mouat's residence with the body of her deceased husband at midnight on Sunday, may be imagined. No news of the fatal accident having reached the family. John Samuel White9
