Another Murderous Teasdale Harvey Teasdale

Another distant relative Harvey Teasdale, a clown and publican shot his wife Sarah. Fortunately Sarah lived and the couple eventually reconciled after Harvey got religion and gave up the demon drink and also publicly burned his clown costume. He is down as theatrical in 1851 and in 1871 is a bookseller so I'm guessing he was probably in jail in 1861. Harvey Teasdale was born 1817 Sheffield wife Sarah was born in 1819 also Sheffield. Any newspaper articles about him? His famous stunt was being towed in a bath tub by ducks in Sheffield. He had such a crowd at the river bank that the bank collapsed and several spectators fell in.
