He was Lord of the Manor of Glastonbury, in Somerset, and possessed freehold property in the city of Bath, and also in the vicinity of Bristol. He had been bred up a farmer in Somersetshire and was subsequently a brewer in Bristol, about which time he commenced his political career.

DIED on Friday morning, the 16th instant, Mrs. Jane SOUTHEY, aged 56 years. The disasters of her family by the Kafir irruption preyed too much on her mind, and evidently hastened her dissolution. Like many of the Settlers of 1820 she has [seen?] little in South Africa but care and anxiety. Her labours and exertions for her children were incessant until reason and strength both gave way. Doubtless she is gone to a better world. She was the mother of nine children (seven sons and two daughters), six of whom (four sons and two daughters) are left to lament her loss.

Deceased was a remarkable instance of longevity, having attained the great age of 97 years. He had experienced many vicissitudes, having been several years in the army and seen much service. Up to within a few weeks of his death he was able to do some little manual labour, such as to attend to a horse, an employment in which, having been in a riding regiment, he took great delight. He was a man of temperate habits, and, till within a short period of his death, a [punctual] attendant of the services in the Episcopalian Church of Graham’s Town, where, in consequence of [deafness] an arm-chair had been placed for him by the side of the communion table, and near the pulpit stairs. [His latter] days had been rendered comfortable by [obscured] and family.. [rest illegible – print rubbed away].
