Death August 28, 1820 (aged 52 years)
Text:

Hassall died at Parramatta on 28 August 1820, a victim with two of his grandchildren of the prevailing 'catarrhal fever' epidemic. He left farms totalling 3000 acres (1214 ha) around Parramatta, Dundas, Prospect, Mulgrave Place, Cook and Bringelly but, despite these interests, on which Crook had adversely commented in 1804, Hassall's life was said to have been a 'continued example of religion and piety, extensive benevolence and hospitality', and he had 'never lost sight of his original designation as a Missionary, and continued to the latest period of his life zealously to perform the duties of one, by preaching the Gospel in almost all parts of the colony'. His voluminous correspondence is one of the main sources for the early social history of New South Wales.
