MR. THOMAS BURT
The death occurred suddenly this morning at Pahautanui of Mr. Thomas Burt, formerly of Lower Hutt and Featherston, in his seventy-fifth year.
The late Mr. Burt, who was born at Lower Hutt, was the youngest son of Thomas Burt, one of the first settlers in the Hutt Valley. He succeeded his father in business as a general storekeeper; the business was established at Lower Hutt and Upper Hutt in 1841. In 1921 he removed to Featherston. He was a man who took no prominent part in public affairs, but was widely known for his generosity and kindness. He was a member of the Lower Hutt Methodist Church from his boyhood. In his early days he was a member of the Heretaunga Mounted Rifles.
The late Mr. Burt is survived by his widow, six sons — Messrs. R. H. Burt (Manunui), J. B. Burt (Featherston), A. W. Burt (Pahautanui), C. W. Burt (Te Horo), G. L. Burt (Te Awamutu), V. Burt (Pahautanui), and three daughters — Mrs. H. A. Alexander (Sydney), Mrs. D. H. Nicholson (Taumarunui), and Mrs. A. S. Moore (Wellington). One son, Thomas Burt, was killed in action. Mrs. H. Sanson (Hamilton) and Mrs. Cleland (Kaponga) are sisters. The funeral will be private.
