Jonathan Hassall (1824–1899)

Mr. Jonathan S. Hassall, an old-time resident of Parramatta died on Friday week and was interred at Windsor on Monday. The deceased gentleman belonged to one of the best-known of the old colonial families, being son of the venerable old lady, Mrs. Hassall, of 'Berkshire,' near Windsor, and brother of Mr. Rolland (sic) of Braidwood. Mr. Hassall had been in failing health for some time; and he had long since retired from what may be termed the activities of social life. He left four sons and two daughters, none of them, however, residents of this district. When a younger man, Mr. Hassall had the control of large squatting interests. Mrs. Hassall will be remembered by old Parramatta residents as a lady who took a great interest in matters connected with St. John's parish, Parramatta, and used her wealth to advantage in all kinds of works of charity and benevolence. The family residence has long since disappeared; but in its day it was one of the attractive villas of this district. It was situated at the corner of Charles and George street, and opposite the residence of the late Hon. William Byrnes; and as old residents will remember, it was a two storey residence nestling in a grove of acacia trees.
