Shelley, William James (1774–1815)

DIED - On Thursday at his house at Parramatta, after an illness of two days, Mr. James Shelley, formerly on the Mission to Otaheite, and latterly Superintendant of the Seminary for the Reception & Instruction of the Infant Natives of these Settlements; in which capacity he was indeed most estimable to society. He leaves an amiable wife and large infant family to regret his loss; and in their afflictions all who ever had the happiness of his acquaintance, or the experience of his kind unaffected manners, most feelingly participate.
