January 20, 1738 - Throckmorton

About a Fortnight since, died in the 77th Year of his Age, at his House in Gloucester County, and was last week decently interr’d, Mr. Gabriel Throckmorton, who had been many Years in the Commission of the Peace for that County, and great P___ of the Time and First in the Commission. He was a Gentleman of an unblemished Reputation, just in all his Dealings, a kind Husband, an indulgent Parent and a good Neighbour; and for his valuable Qualities, the Loss of him is much lamented.
