Cuthill, Alexander

Doctor who was the principal benefactor of the Randwick Asylum for Destitute Children. He was murdered on the Cooks River Road by a disturbed man named James Gray in 1854. In 1860 a bridge was built at the bottom of Beach Street in Coogee and named after Cuthill in honour of his role in formally establishing the asylum with his generous bequest. Cuthill Street, also named after him, borders High Cross Park.
