Charles Vaughan Waldron (1780–1834)

At his residence, Spring Hill, Illawarra, at 4 o'clock, p.m., on the 28th of January, Captain Charles [Vaughan] Waldron, J. P., late of the 39th regiment. Captain W. was universally respected by all who knew him, and, melancholy to relate, leaves a widow and twelve children to lament his loss. The circumstances which are supposed to have accelerated the death of the above respected man, were occasioned by a severe fall from the effects of blows received from two incorrigible assigned female servants; and who were not satisfied with that alone, but repeated their blows while he lay on the ground. Shortly after the affray, he was visited with a paralytic stroke, which terminated in death, after a severe illness of 14 days.—Gazette.
