On 13 December, at his former property of Matavai, Jonathan's troubled life came to an end, when he apparently took his own life by drowning. The Sydney Gazette of 16 December recorded the events preceding his death, and the probability of his suicide:

"We regret to state that Mr. Jonathan Hassall of Matavia,[sic] Cowpastures, who has been in a deranged state of mind for the last three months, put a period to his existence on Saturday last. He left home early on the morning of that day with a determination, as he stated, of shooting some person who had offended him: but as he was in the habit of behaving in this strange manner, no particular notice was taken of his threat. However, he not returning at the usual hour, search was made, when his hat and stick were discovered floating in a lagoon near his farm. We had not heard of the body being discovered at the time we went to press."

At the time, Mary was pregnant with their eighth child. This infant, Elizabeth, was born in 1835, but only lived for six days.
