Charles Hindley (politician)
Hindley was the son of Ignatius and Mary Hindley, a Moravian family who owned a cotton mill. He was active in social reform. One of the first streets in South Australia's capital, Adelaide, Hindley Street, was named after him.
In late November 1857 Hindley fell ill and his doctor, Robert Bentley Todd, prescribed "Six pints of Brandy to be drunk in 72 hours" as a cure for an unknown illness. He did not survive and died in Westminster aged 61. A similar fate befell Dr Todd three years later when he also died through an excess of alcohol.
