Gerald de Courcy Lefroy (1819–1878)

Death of Mr. [Gerald] De Courcy Lefroy.–We regret to hear that this gentleman succumbed on Sunday last, to the accident he met with a short time ago. The unfortunate gentleman never recovered from the great shock to his nervous system, and gradually sank. Mr. Lefroy had many friends, and his loss will be much felt in the Southern districts.
