Lucas, Nathaniel (1764–1818)

On Tuesday last the dead body of Mr. Nathaniel Lucas, for many years known in this Colony and at Norfolk Island as a respectable builder, was found, left by the tide, at twenty yards distance from Moore Bridge, Liverpool ; which unhappy catastrophe appeared to have proceeded from his own act, owing to a mental derangement. He had been six days absent from his family at Liverpool, on a pretext of going to Parramatta ; but his long absence, connected with other circumstances that gave rise to apprehension, naturally induced his sons to go in quest of him; the result of which was, that he was by one of his own sons found.
