| Sir Mathew Richard Sausse, was the first Chief Justice of Bombay High Court . Nothing much is known about him, except that he was a reserved and retiring man averse to mixing in society; so much so, it is said, that he never entered the Government House, nor joined a club nor attended any dinner or social function, and he never read newspapers. His only recreation was a solitary ride in the evening along with sea beach. He was austere and exclusive in his attitude and was known as "Sausse the Silent", believing in the ideal of the chill isolation of Judges. He was a devout Roman Catholic, and regularly attended the Mass on Sunday morning in the Roman Catholic Chruch at Girgaum.
