de Mestre, Jean Charles Prosper (1789–1844)

It is our painful duty to record the sudden death of Prosper De Mestre, Esq., which took place on Saturday evening last, at his farm, near Shoalhaven. Mr. De Mestre had only just returned from Sydney and from the inclement weather had endured more than usual fatigue. This, together with the unsatisfactory state of his affairs, weighed him down: a violent fit seized him on Friday night, and medical assistance was sent for, but arrived too late. The unfortunate gentleman expired on Saturday morning, leaving a widow and a large family to mourn his loss.
