Marriage: It could be likely that there was no marriage between William Seymour & Mary Thomas. The remoteness of KI and the lack of clergy as well as the possible bigamy implications as well as Mary’s aboriginality all could have mitigated against the need or wish for a formal marriage. - Chris Ward.

Obituary

A case of sudden death is reported from Kangaroo Island. Mr. William Seymour had been to Adelaide for medical advice, and returned by the cutter Mazeppa, Captain J. Bruce, apparently in good spirits, and very hearty. On Tuesday the cutter arrived at near Mr. Lashmere's house, and Seymour landed there at about 7 p.m., seemingly all right, saying it would only take him half an hour to get home. On Wednesday morning, however, his son, who had been sent by Mrs. Seymour to see if her husband had returned, found him lying across tbe path dead. There was no evidence of any struggle, nor any mark of violence upon him. On the circumstances being made known a number of the neighbors viewed the body, and, in the absence of a Justice of the Peace, took the evidence of Captain Bruce and young Seymour, and recorded their opinion that death resulted from natural causes.
