  • 18 Dec 1919: Late Mr. John Thornton. PASSING OF A WORTHY PIONEER. As the years roll on, gradually, but all too surely, the worthy pioneers of the early days are passing away.
    One by one they are being laid to rest in this quiet graveyard or that, and in a little while the last of the men and women who most deserve the name of pioneers will be taking his or her last long rest. But they have played a big part in the building up of Australia, and few have proved more worthy to rank among those who should long he remembered for the good work they have done than the late Mr. John Thornton, of Mount Myrtoon, who died at his residence on Monday evening last.
    Mr. Thornton, who had reached the great age of 85 years, was a native of Yorkshire, England. It was in the year 1835 that he was born, and at the age of 18 years, with his brother Alfred, he embarked on, the sailing ship Great Britain, en route to Australia.
    In those days a voyage to this continent was no light undertaking. On arrival in Victoria Mr. Thornton took up his residence in Melbourne, where he commenced business. A year or two later he forsook the city, going first to the North-Eastern District of Victoria and thence to Gippsland. It was in the "seventies" that he decided to move to the fertile Western District, and coming to this locality purchased the Mount Myrtoon property where he had resided ever since—a period of 50 years. Having been possessed of great energy, in addition to attending to his property at Mount Myrtoon, five years later he started a Land and stock agency business in Camperdown. Like all new ventures of the kind, his business here had a small beginning, and the stock sales of those first days were not very important as compared with the sales in this town to-day. But Mr. Thornton was possessed of keen business acumen and, under his able guidance, the venture quickly became firmly established and rapidly expanded, and its proprietor speedily became well and favorably known from one end of the Western District to the other, as well as in other parts of the State. For some 25 years Mr Thornton's business steadily grew and he then found it necessary to enter into a partnership and Mr Curie was the new member of the firm, which afterwards carried on just as succesfully under the style of Thornton and Co. It was some time later that Mr. C. B. Palmer, of Terang, also became a partner and the style of the firm changed to Thornton, Palmer and Co. It so continued for a period of years when Mr. Howe, of Armstrong, Howe and Co., entered the business that Mr. Thornton had founded so many years previously. Transactions were carried out in a large way in the district from Hamilton to Melbourne and various other parts of Victoria. This was at the time one of the most important businesses of its kind in the State, and had branches in Hamilton, Terang, Cobden, Colac, Geelong and Melbourne. The late Mr. Thornton not only founded the firm, but was responsible to a large extent for the success achieved. With the going of the years and as the partners passed the prime of life they accepted an offer from Messrs. Dalgety and Co., which Company was at the time establishing additional centres in the country district. And so, under the skilful directorship of the late Mr. Thornton the operations of the Company grew from the selling at the first of a few cattle and sheep on a set day to the huge transactions it carried out later.
    But it was not only from a business point of view that Mr. Thornton's life was a more than ordinarily useful one. He was a man possessed of many truly sterling characteristics.
    He had varied interests in public and private life apart from the commercial point of view, and through his unbounded energy and unlimited desire to help all worthy movements along, he accomplished much that was good and desirable and to a nature such as his the opportunity to do this, must have meant true pleasure. His activities were many, and on the starting of any new movement it was the custom to seek Mr. Thornton's aid, which was invariably given in full measure. Numberless ventures for the common good owed their success largely to his sound judgment and unstinted help, and in any good cause he was as liberal as he was enthusiastic.
    He was an ardent sportsman and was particularly fond of cricket, a game at which in his prime he had few peers. When he first interested himself in this sport the present Camperdown Cricket Ground was virtually a swamp, and those concerned are mainly indebted to Mr. Thornton for the fine ground of to-day His energy was also greatly helpful in having the ground fenced in and the pavilion, which was recently burned down, erected. He it was who worked hardest to get the turf wicketsmade, and in those days the Camperdown Cricket ground was recognised as one of the best in the State, while the Club also was one of the most formidable In Victoria. Its team was superior to any excepting some of those in the cities, and the Camperdown willow-wielders in those days often lowered the colors of the best elevens of Geelong and Ballarat, and not infrequently defeated the crack teams of Melbourne. Mr. Thornton, was himself a brilliant allround cricketer. He was one of the smartest fieldsmen of the day, a fine bat and a good bowler. He was also a good tactician and there was no captain more quick to recognise the best measures to adopt In the early days he was captain of the Emerald Hill Cricket Club, and by his death the Melbourne Cricket Club has lost its oldest member. How many years, ago it was when Mr. Thornton joined the Melbourne Cricket Club, perhaps only the records can say accurately, but there is no doubt that he was the senior member by some years, and his demise will be very deeply regretted by members of that Club as well as in cricketing and sporting circles generally. As illustrating his ability as a player, he represented Victoria in inter-State cricket in 1859 and I860, and he was the last living member of the first Victorian eleven that engaged New South Wales.
    Mr. Thornton also took a deep interest in all matters pertaining to the land and he was Chairman of Directors of the Cobden Butter Factory the pioneer factory of the State, from its inception until a few years ago. As well, he found it necessary owing to his numerous offices, to refuse many other positions. He was deeply interested in Church matters, and was a member of the Committee of St Paul's for many years, and rendered very valuable assistance in freeing the Church properties from all debt. In his advanced years he retired from this office. For a very long period he was a justice of the Peace, and was recognised as a most conscientious adjudicator.
    By his passing the district loses one of its most worthy citizens—one who was deservedly and universally esteemed and admired, and the sorrowing relatives will have the sympathy of a host of friends. The only son is Mr. John Herbert Thornton, of Mount Myrtoon, and the daughters Mrs. Harold Grimwade, wife of General Grimwade, and Mrs. George Reed, of Sydney, whose husband is a son of Mr Justice Hood. He was predeceased by his wife by over 35 years.
    The funeral, which took place yesterday was largely attended. The body was laid to rest in the Church of England portion of the Camperdown Cemetery the Rev. Canon Colebrook reading the burial service.
    Messrs. Collie, and Brennan had charge of the funeral arrangements.4
  • 27 Dec 1919: LATE MR JOHN THORNTON. Mr. John Thornton, who died at Myrtoon, Camperdown, on December 15, at the age of 85, was at the time of his death the oldest member of the Melbourne Cricket Club, having joined in 1858. He was a brilliant all-round cricketer. He was one of the smartest fieldsmen of the day, a fine bat, and a good bowler. In the early days Mr. Thornton was captain of the Emerald Hill Cricket Club. He represented Victoria in interstate cricket in 1859 and 1860, and he was the last living member of the first Victorian eleven that engaged New South Wales. He helped to build up the Camperdown Cricket Club, in which he always took a deep interest. It was mainly through his influence that the Camperdown ground, originally little more than a swamp was converted into an up-to-date reserve.
    Up to the outbreak of war Mr. Thornton never missed attending the interstate cricket match at the M.C.C. ground on Boxing Day. His eldest daughter is the wife of Brigadier-General Grimwade.
    The deceased was held in high respect and his funeral was a very large one. The burial was in the Church of England portion of the Camperdown Cemetery, the service over the grave being read by the Rev. Canon Coleman. The pall-bearers were Messrs. M. Scanlan, J. H. Vagg, C. Grayland, D. Cameron, C. W. Gray, W. T. Manifold, E. Manifold, C. H. Palmer, and W. R. Henderson.5

  • 30 Nov 1863: FERRY RIGHT ON THE MURRAY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ARBGUS. Sir,-In your issue of the 11th inst., you published a telegram from Echuca as follows:
    —"The New South Wales Government has withdrawn Mr. Hopwood's ferry-right on the Murray. Both punts are stopped, causing a total cessation of traffic. About fifty drays are waiting to cross, &c." Your correspondent has been misinformed ; the facts are vastly different, and as such misrepresentations may engender an idea that the New South Wales Government wish to throw obstacles in the way of our trade with the Riverine districts, and as we think that any further misunderstanding about the much vexed question of the border traffic is undesirable and prejudicial to our interests and those of our constituents, we deem it our duty to lay a correct statement of the case before the public per favour of your columns, Mr. Hopwood is the well-known owner of two ferries at Echuca and Moama. He has till lately held in his hands the only means of traffic communication with New South Wales in this neighbourhood. Some months ago, Mr. James Watt of Moama, applied to and obtained leave from the New South Wales Government to work another punt, being the third in this vicinity. Mr. Hopwood opposed Mr. Watt's punt, and attempted to prevent it being worked. Mr. Lockhart, the district Crown land commissioner for New South Wales, ordered Mr. Hopwood to desist from interfering with Mr. Watt, and in consequence of this, Mr. Hopwood at once, of his own accord, closed his ferries to the public. Thus, then, your correspondent is in error. The New South Wales Government did not withdraw Mr. Hopwood's ferry-right ; they merely granted one to Mr. Watt. The punts were stopped by Mr. Hopwood on the morning of the 11th inst; but the river was crossable throughout the day at Mr. Watt's punt, and if fifty drays were waiting to cross, they certainly were neither in Moama nor Echuca.
    Should any misconceptions have arisen as to this matter, we trust these statements will tend to dispel them. Hopwood's ferries, we are happy to say, were re-opened on the morning of the 12th by the intervention of Mr. Langford, the Crown land commissioner at this place, and they have since continued in full operation.
    We have trespassed thus far on your space, from a desire to see the two Governments and the two communities on a perfectly good understanding, to the end that a bridge may be constructed over the Murray at this place, as soon as possible, sufficient for all the requirements of the public traffic. That such is urgently wanted the past four months' floods have fully shown ; and as we understand that an influential movement is now on foot to press the matter on the attention of the respective Governments, we think it advisable to contradict and correct any erroneous reports that may retard this desirable object.
    We are, Sir, your obedient servants,
    J. H. CLOUGH & CO.,
    Per R. BIGGAT GOW.
