Wilson, Felix (1802–1865)

We regret (says the Empire) to have to announce the death of Felix Wilson Esq., J.P., an old and much respected colonist. Mr. Wilson died yesterday, at his residence, Pine Villa, Newtown. His disease (asthma) was of long continuance, although it assumed a serious form but a short time before his death. He leaves a large family, but his loss as a kind neighbour and friend, an upright magistrate, and dispenser of unostentatious charity, will be felt far beyond the circle of his family and immediate friends and connections. He was, we believe, about sixty-three years of age, upwards of sixty of which he had passed in this colony, having arrived here when an infant with his parents, who were among the earliest of the free settlers.
