Bolitho – At Lanwithan, Lostwithiel, the residence of his son-in-law, Richard Foster, Esq., July 31, Thomas Simon Bolitho, of Trengwainton, Penzance, born 22nd January, 1808. The funeral will take place at Gulval Church, at 3.30, on Friday.

West Briton and Cornwall Advertiser, 1 Aug. 1887
We learn with profound regret of the death of Mr. Thomas Simon Bolitho,
of Trengwainton, Penzance, banker, merchant, and landowner. Mr. Bolitho had been staying with his son-in-law, Mr. Richard Foster, at Lanwithan, Lostwithiel, and attended service yesterday morning at St. Nectar's chapel-of-ease. In the evening he took a short walk, but soon after his return to Lanwithan, at seven o'clock, he was taken seriously ill. Dr. Row was summoned, and he was soon in attendance, but his services were of no avail, and Mr. Bolitho expired in the course of a few minutes. By Mr. Bolitho's death the county has lost one of its pillars. He was, with out exception, the most able man of which Cornwall could boast, and his advice was invariably sought in time of difficulty. He was full of information with regard to the various interests of the county. And we know not where to look for the man who can adequately fill the breach which his sudden decease has created. Mr. Bolitho was born in 1808, and was, therefore, 79 years.
