Teale, John (1789–1851)

An inquest was this day held, before Joshua Dowe, Esq., the Coroner for the district, on the body of John Teale, who died on the morning of this day. From the evidence of the son of the deceased, it appeared that he had been in the habit of drinking to excess for the last ten or twelve years, and had latterly been indulging to a great extent. He was seized with an attack of delirium tremens on the 24th instant; but as he had had similar attacks frequently before, his family did not think it necessary to call in medical aid until an hour or two before he died. The jury brought in a verdict, that deceased, John Teale, died of delirium tremens, produced by the excessive use of ardent spirits.
