Henry William Teale (1829–1912)

Mr. Henry William Teale, one of the oldest residents of the Hawkesbury district died at Wilberforce on Thursday of last week. He was in his 84th year, and had resided in the house in which he died for upwards of 64 years. He leaves a family of 12 grown-up children — four sons and eight daughters. One of the sons is Mr. W. H. Teale, principal of the Burwood Superior Public School, while other sons are engaged in commercial and farming life in different parts of the State. The late Mr. Teale was the last survivor of the overlanding party from Adelaide in 1850. The remains were interred in St John's Church of England Cemetery, Wilberforce. The late Mr. Teale was closely identified with the sports of the early days of the Hawkesbury, and could tell of many queer happenings of the olden times. The burial was conducted by the Rev. J. Cherry, and Mr. Chandler was the undertaker.
