      Obituary in The Star (New Zealand), issue 4977, 15 June 1894, p. 1, reads (in part): THOMAS HAMILTON ANSON. / By the death of Mr. T. H. Anson, which took place last evening, Canterbury has lost another of the early settlers, one who for many years was intimately connected with a number of local bodies in the province. About three weeks ago some stacks of oat sheaves on Mr Anson's farm at Courtenay were found to be on fire about eleven o'clock at night, and he at once went to the spot ... and remained working at the fire all night while wet through. It is surmised that he then caught a chill, which resulted in his death. On Thursday last he left his home to attend a meeting of the Board of Education, and, feeling unwell, did not come into town, but stayed for the night ... at Halswell. He, however, came on to the meeting of the Board the next morning. During the meeting he was taken seriously ill, and was moved to the house of Mr. James Brett, Fendalton. ... in spite of unremitting attention, Mr Anson passed away at a quarter past eight last evening. / Mr Anson was the son of an officer in the Imperial army and was born in India, and with his parents lived there through the exciting times of the Sepoy Mutiny. His father died shortly afterwards. He proceeded to England with his mother, and was educated at Eton. Upon leaving that school he came out to Canterbury in the ship Cressy about 1860, and was engaged as a cadet on Mr C. J. Harper's Lake Coleridge station. About 1863 he entered into partnership with the late Mr J. K. Karslake and purchased the Waireka run in the Malvern district, as well as a block of country on the Broken River from Mr C. J. Harper. After occupying the property for about two years, they disposed of it.... In 1868, Messrs Karslake and Anson purchased the Mount Torlesse run ..., and occupied it for several years. On the death of Mr Karslake, the property was sold ... Mr Anson then went to reside at Courtenay, on the property which he occupied up to the time of his death. In 1871 he married a daughter of the late Captain Gorle. This lady, with eight children, survives him. The eldest son, who is twenty-one years of age, has been managing the farm for some time. ... The funeral will take place at Courtenay to-morrow.
