SUDDEN DEATH.—An inquest was held on Tuesday by the coroner, in a hut at Phœnix Park,
on the body of Patrick Hawley, late a farmer there. The deceased had for the last twelve or
fifteen years been subject to epileptic fits, for which, believing there was no remedy, he
obtained no medical advice. On Friday and Saturday he was seized with fits. On Monday he
complained of a headache. At about midday his wife left him with two young children to go to
Morpeth. About four o'clock a neighbour, calling, found him sitting on a stool, with his body
leaning forward, and his hands on the ground, either dying or actually dead. Dr. Getty was of
opinion that death had bean caused by congestion of the brain while suffering from an
epileptic fit. The jury returned a verdict to that effect.


Mary Hawley - unconfirmed. No record found of her birth or arrival, but she married John
Hickey in 1856 at West Maitland. Death in 1894 at East Maitland shows her parents as
