Weaver, William (1828–1868)

Mr William Weaver, formerly engineer-in-chief of the province of Auckland and inspector general of telegraphs in New Zealand, was found dead at the Victoria Hotel this morning. He had been over here the last fortnight on a visit. An inquest was held on the body, and the medical evidence disclosed the fact that death resulted from sanguineous apoplexy, and the jury returned a verdict accordingly. The deceased was at one time a resident of Sydney.
