Notes for Thomas Pearce
THOMAS PEARSE BUCKETT
After a lengthy
illness, Captain Thomas Pearse Buckett, J. P., one of the oldest residents in
Mount Perry, passed quietly away on Monday afternoon at his residence,
Aubarnville, near Mt. Perry. The
demise was not unexpected but it nevertheless cast a great gloom over the whole
district, for the deceased gentleman was not only known to every one of long
residence, but was esteemed and respected , and it is felt that a most familiar
land mark has been removed. Most
genuine sympathy is extended to the bereaved widow and son.
Capt. Buckett, although he had almost reached the age of 69 years, was
until the past year or two, a man of robust health and much activity.
He was a native of Cornwall, England, and came out to South Australia
when quite a boy. In his earlier
years he worked in the Burra Burra, Kadina and Moonta mines.
Nearly forty years ago, not long after his marriage, he came to
Queensland under a two year arrangement with Captain Osborne, who was then
opening up the Mount Perry mines, and he has been a resident of this place ever
since. He brought with him, one
hundred experienced copper miners from the Kadina district, and with but brief
exception whilst managing elsewhere, remained in charge of all surface work and
stores in connection with the mines, and his splendid discipline and extreme
impartiality gained the universal goodwill that continued with him during his
two score years of his residence. After
the departure of Captain Osborne he retained his position under Captain Reynold,
and afterwards Captain Israel Bennett. He
was regarded not only as a practical miner but as an authority on the value of
copper lodes, and on one occasion, more than thirty years ago, he was appointed
to the charge of the Mt. Orange copper mines in the Nebo District, which just
then had been purchased, in boom like style by inexperienced capitalists.
Promptly upon taking charge he exploded the whole business to the chagrin
of those most directly concerned, but this was only an instance of the honesty
of purpose that characterised him throughout his life.
Not many weeks elapsed from the date of his appointment until he was back
in Mount Perry. He was too keen a
man to be misled and too honest to take advantage of the ignorance of others.
When Mount Perry closed down he was appointed to the management of the
then promising Reid's Creek mines, and he has never lost faith in the future of
that place. He retired from a mining
career to enter into the storekeeping business, first purchasing the then
prosperous business of Mr. T. Williams at Reid's Creek, and afterwards
transferring it to Mount Perry. In
business he was signally successful and about seven years ago retired, making a
lovely home about a mile from town. Whilst
always ready to assist in every movement that tended to the welfare of the town
or district, Captain Buckett did not seek prominence. In the early days he took his place in the management of the
hospital, the Shire Council and other institutions, but more recently was only
too pleased to give way to younger and more enthusiastic workers, yet ever
steadfastly maintained most profound views and principles.
The funeral, which took place yesterday afternoon, was attended by the
whole of the old residents and many beautiful wreaths and floral tributes were
placed on the grave. The local
Oddfellows assisted at the funeral ceremony, which was conducted by the Rev. Mr.
Wecker. Captain Buckett although
retaining membership of the Kadina branch, was in the early days a pillar of
support to the establishment of an Oddfellows lodge in Mount Perry.
All through his long illness Captain Buckett was lovingly tended by Mrs.
Buckett, ably assisted by their devoted daughter-in-law, but as the most expert
physicians had proclaimed, the complaint could not be overcome.
Mr.T. Buckett, the only surviving son, who is head master of the Swan
Creek State school, was enabled to spend the last few days with his father.

Very many former
residents, of Mt. Perry, and a host of old friends in Bundaberg. will hear with
much regret of the death of Mrs. Buckett, relict of the late Captain Thomas
Pearce Buckett, which took place at Wynnum Heights, Brisbane, on Tuesday. The
deceased lady had been in failing health for some time, and sad to say, her only
son, Mr. Tom Buckett, has been very ill for several months. The late Mr. and
Mrs. Buckett were residents of Mt. Perry for well over a quarter of a century,
prior to the death of Mr. Buckett, which occurred on 13th November, 1911.
They were enthusiastic citizens in all matters appertaining to the
betterment of the people and the district. The remains of Mrs. Buckett were
brought to Bundaberg yesterday and placed beside that of her husband in the
General Cemetery, the funeral service being conducted by the Rev. J. Prowse. (C.H.Garland) BM 26
