Diana Teale (1788–1854)

On Friday last, Mrs. Diana Teale, widow of the late Mr. John Teale, miller, of Windsor, died at her residence in Macquarie-street. We believe Mrs. Teale was the second white person born, and the first to live to maturity, after birth, in the colony since its foundation by Governor Phillip sixty-six years ago, she having been born a few months thereafter. We are also informed that Mrs. Teale's father, the late *Mr. Joseph Kable, was the first man in the party of the above named Governor to set his foot on shore at Sydney, in the name of the British Government.

* her father was Henry Kable
