1882 'WAKEFIELD — DEATH OF MR WILLIAM TEALL — We regret to announce the death of William Teall, one of the oldest and most respected of the inhabitants of Wakefield, and who died yesterday morning at Bridlington, where has latterly resided on account of his health. The dceased, who was 73 years of age, was head of the well known firm of Messrs Teall, Simpson, & Co (Limited), of the Patent Stearine Works, and of Teall & Tomlinson, of the Ings Foundry, Wakefield; and it is no exaggeration to say that the success of both undertakings has been greatly owing to his energy and high business qualities. But although closely engaged in business, he took an active interest in the public affairs the town. He was for many years a guardian the poor in the Wakefield Union, and for some time held the important position of chairman of the board.[2]
