Taylor, Nancy Agnes (1837–1893)

A much-respected lady of Parramatta, Mrs. Taylor, wife of Mr. John Taylor, J.P., died suddenly on Saturday last. About 1 o'clock she retired to her room to have a rest, but as she made no stir up to 4.30 o'clock she was called, and no answer being received, the door was burst open, and her lifeless body was found on the bed. Mrs. Taylor had been suffering from heart disease for some years, and her medical adviser certifying as to the cause of death no inquest was necessary. The end seems to have been accelerated by grief at the departure of one of her sons for New Zealand that day.
