A very old identity of the Shellharbour-Albion Park district, in the person of Mrs Eliza East, passed away at her residence in Staff street, Wollongong late Saturday, in her 90th year

The late Mrs East was born County Fermanagh, Ireland, and came to Australia with her parents Mr and Mrs Elliott, when two years of age. Shortly afterwards she lost both her parents, and wont to live with an uncle, Mr Graham, of Avondale, and later with a brother, Mr. John Elliott, near Kiama. Eventually she married Mr. James East, and after residing near Kiama for a short time, moved to Shellharbour, where Mr. East was engaged in farming pursuits for 40 years. After her husband retired, about 20 years ago, they moved to Wollongong, where Mr. East died 11 years ago.

During their residence in Shellharbour, both Mr. and Mrs. East took an active interest in public affairs,

Mr. East being an alderman of Shellharbour Municipality for many years, being Mayor for several terms. Both were also keenly interested in the Methodist Church, to which they devoted a great deal of their time. The late Mrs. East will be remembered by many -for her kindliness and charm.

After a short service at the residence, the funeral cortege, which was very, lengthy, moved off for the Methodist section of the Wollongong cemetery…

The late Mrs. East is survived by two sons, Messrs. Russell East, who is at present Mayor of Shellharbour, and Charles East, of Wollongong; three daughters. Mrs. Bissell (Wollongong), Mrs. E. K. Tate (Jamberoo), Mrs. J. A. Johnston (Albion Park). There are also sixteen, grandchildren and seven great grandchildren. We extend our sympathy to the bereaved relatives.

She was formerly Miss Jarman and was born at Sydney in 1851, about where the present Central Railway station now stands. Prior to her marriage to Mr. John East, she was a school teacher. The late Mrs. East spent, all her married life in the Shoalhaven, Dunmore and, Kiama district. She was a great worker for the Methodist Church. Her husband died some seven years ago, and sometime after his death she left Kiama and resided with relatives.

Until a few days before her death, she had been staying with her daughter, Mrs. A. S. Cornford, at

Mosman. She was a remarkable old lady and retained her faculties until the end, being wonderfully energetic and cheerfully undertaking the journeys to visit her various relatives. The late Mrs. East is survived by three sons: Percy, Aubrey and Ambrose, and four daughters, Grace (Mrs Huthnance) Elsie (Mrs. Wolley), Ruby (Mrs. Moore), and Mary (Mrs. A. S.

On the 25th instant, the wife of Mr. Thomas East, of a son. Examiner (Kiama, NSW : 1859 - 1862) Saturday 31 December 1859 p 2


We regret having to record the death of Mrs. Elizabeth East (relict of the late Mr. Thomas East) of “Prospect,” Kiama, which occurred suddenly on Tuesday morning last at 11.50 a.m. The deceased lady retired as usual the previous evening apparently in the best of health and spirits. The inmates of the house were awakened, however on the morning stated by hearing her cough, when it was found she was in a state of collapse. All that was possible was done to restore animation-the services of Dr. Beith being called into requisition but without avail. The end, which came as stated, was peaceful. Mrs East, who was possessed of one of the most taking and kindly dispositions, was a very old colonist and resident of the district. In the year 1841 she, with her husband, engaged their passage to Australia in the ship Earl Grey, and after a voyage of six mouths (during which period her two children were buried at sea) landed in Sydney, where they resided for a short period only. From Sydney they went to Brisbane Water and afterwards to Maitland, eventually finding their way to this district, and for the first few years after their arrival settled upon the Waughope Estate at Jamberoo.

Purchasing the farm known as “Prospect,” they came to reside in Kiama at which place-the deceased lady resided up to the time of her death- a period of 53 years.

During the early days Mrs. East endured many of the hardships then to be met with, and witnessed many an-exciting incident, which, with her wonderful memory, she could recount to the minutest detail, and interesting stories of the old pioneering days they were. Mrs. East, who was in her 88th year, was the devoted mother of twelve children (six sons and six daughters) seven of whom survive her to mourn their loss. They are- Rev, Richard East (Milton). Messrs James and Alfred T. East (Shellharbor), Mr. John East (Dunmore), Mr. George L. East (“Probspect,” Kiama) -with whom, the old lady resided-Mrs, Joseph East (Kangaroo Mount) and Mrs. James Francis (Milton). She also leaves many- grandchildren, and several great grand-children.

The funeral took place on Wednesday and was largely attended, her remains being interred in the North Kiama cemetery. The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW: 1863 - 1947) Friday 3 March 1905 p 2

Mary Ann East was born at Gerringong, New South Wales, in March, 1860. In her early teens she passed through a spiritual experience, and had the assurance of conversion, and later was admitted into the membership of the Methodist Church. On the death of her father, the late Thomas Black, the family settled in Kiama, where Mary Black, - as she was then called, took an active part in church life and work. She became a Sunday school teacher and organist. She married in 1886 William Henry East. Residing in Darlington, she assisted her husband- in the Sunday School, which was held in the Council Chambers. Here she officiated as organist. Mrs. East was later identified with the Bourke Street Ladies' Church Aid. Later, she assisted in Sunday school work at Dulwich Hill. It was here that a fine Christian service was rendered.

Her home became the centre of gravity for ministers and the young men of the church. She wielded a magnetic influence, and her charming spiritual nature was evidenced by the many grateful acknowledgments received by her husband from almost every part of New South Wales. Mrs. East served the church at Lewisham for 23 years, and then removed to Rockdale. It was at

Rockdale that probably her best work was done. For 27 years she was an active member of the Ladies'

Church Aid, until failing health called a halt. Her home was indeed her castle, and from it radiated the powerful influence of a remarkably tranquil and indefinable spiritual force. Mrs. East passed to higher service on the 14th June, 1938, having borne her sickness with a wonderful patience and fortitude. The members of her family were Alice (Mrs. V. S. Medcalf, of Croydon), Millie (Mrs. T. R. Rodgers, of Yenda), Thomas James East (also of Yenda), Muriel (wife of Dr. S. F. Elliott, of Carlton). Her husband remembers with gratitude to God the 52 years of unalloyed happiness. The Methodist (Sydney, NSW : 1892 - 1954) Saturday 6 August 1938 p 19

Living Kembla Heights in 1903 Electoral Roll –domestic duties


Mrs. Egan, of Mount Kembla, who is 90 years of age, has sustained many bereavements in her long life, the latest being that of her son, Mr. John Egan, who died on Sunday, aged 70 years. This makes six sons which Mrs. Egan has lost, four were victims of the Mount Kembla Disaster, and another son Frank, died some years ago. In addition she lost two sons-in-law. One, John Purcell, was killed in the Kembla disaster, and subsequently his widow married a Mr. Owen, who also died. In addition she lost her husband. The remains were interred in the Wollongong cemetery on Monday. The Mt. Kembla Colliery did not work on Monday, to permit of the employees attending the funeral.

The late Mr. John Egan was a single man, and was born at Foxground 70 years ago. He moved to Mt. Kembla 40 years ago, and for a number of years had been employed on the screens at the Mt. Kembla Colliery, which he left about 18 months ago, owing to ill health. Of a quiet and genial disposition, he was well liked by all who came in contact with him, and many an old acquaintance will regret to hear of the passing of John Egan, who was a man in every sense of the word.

The death took place at Wollongong on Sunday last of Mrs. Egan, daughter of Mr. Michael Raper, of Windsor The deceased had been ailing for some time past, but no one ever suspected she would be cut off so quickly. She was 45 years of age, and was highly respected by all who knew her. For a long time she kept the Commercial Hotel at Wollongong, and only a few weeks ago paid a visit to Windsor, being then in the best of health. She leaves seven children. The remains were brought to Windsor on Monday afternoon last, and laid to rest in the Windsor R.C. Cemetery. The funeral was represented by the leading residents of the town. The coffin, which was a beautiful polished cedar with silver mountings, was covered with floral tributes. The pallbearers were Messrs. B. Hall, M L.A., A. D. Fowler, D. Holland, J.P., and W. C.

But lately Mr. and Mrs. Elliott had broken up their home at “Seaview”, Kiama, to give Mrs. Elliott the benefit of the mountain air. For years she has been a sufferer, and all that loving care and attention on the part of her devoted husband and daughter has been done, and the best medical skill obtained to prolong a life dear to them and much sympathy is felt for Mr. and Miss Elliott and the youngest daughter, Mrs. James Gibson in their sad bereavement out.

The old lady, who was 72 years of age, retired to bed in her usual good health about nine o'clock, but awoke about an hour afterwards, when she was seized with a fit of coughing, and died within half-an-hour, before the doctor, who had been summoned, had arrived. The funeral took place on Sunday afternoon, when a very large concourse assembled to testify their respect towards one whose many excellent qualities had gained for her the esteem of all who had the privilege of knowing her. The remains wore interred in the Presbyterian Cemetery, the Rev. Mr. Gray, of Teralga, conducting the service. The deceased leaves a husband, one son, and four daughters — Mrs. W.

One of the Cootamundra district’s grand old pioneers, Mrs. Isabella Elliott, relict of the late John Elliott passed away last night at “Ferndale.”

Deceased, who was 85, has been in the district for 55 years.

Sons and daughters left to mourn her loss are Edith, Amy, Gladys, Effie, (Mrs. Ryals) and Bert, Walter, and Claude. Two daughters, Eva (Mrs. Cross) and Alvie (Mrs. Merrin), and two sons, Alfred and Edwin, predeceased her. There are 11 grandchildren.

The late Mrs. Elliott was born at Mt. Pleasant (South-Coast), and was married to the late John Elliot at Broughton village.

The late John Elliott selected the present property, and he and his good wife came to Cootamundra in 1879. The railway was not here then, and the long journey from the South Coast was made by tip dray.

Deceased took a very active interest in the Church of England church. She was remarkably clever at crochet work and only a little time ago made an altar cloth, which she presented to the church. She possessed a most generous nature, and was always willing to assist anyone. Her friends were countless. During the Great War she organised two dances at

“Ferndale” in aid of the Red Cross, and a profit of £500 was made on the two functions— a great tribute to her organisation and an instance of her patriotism.

The funeral will leave the house at 1.30 to-morrow. There will be a service at the Church of. England at 2.30, and the funeral will leave the church at 3 p.m. Cootamundra Herald (NSW: 1877 - 1954) Friday 22 June 1934 p 2

He also read the usual service at the grave side. The deceased was left a widow with a family of nine children thirty-six years ago, and came to this colony in the year 1854, bringing with her three daughters, her son John and five others of the family having preceded her about two years.

Death of Mrs. A. Emery— It is with the deepest regret that we have to record the death of Mrs. Emery, wife of Mr. Alexander Emery, of Bute Park, Temora road, one of the most respected settlers of the neighbour. Deceased was on Saturday apparently in good health, but was that night seized with sudden illness. Dr. Combo was sent for on Sunday, and the numerous friends of deceased rallied to her assistance; but she continued to sink till on Sunday night she sank into the arms of Death.

Late Mrs. Emery.

As briefly mentioned in our last issue, Mrs. Jane Emery died at the residence of her daughter (Mrs. Makin), Park Road, Bulli on Thursday of last week.

The late Mrs. Emery was a native of Northumberland (England) where she was born 95 years ago. As Miss Richardson, she married Mr. George Emery in England and they arrived in Australia in 1879 with a family of nine children. They resided at Wollongong for a short period, when they removed to Mt. Keira, where Mr. Emery was employed at the Mt. Keira colliery.

Mr. Emery predeceased his wife by about 20 years.

Mrs. Emery remained at Mt. Keira until two years ago when she removed to her daughter's residence at Bulli.

The deceased retained her faculties’ right up till the day before her death, A fortnight before the end came, Mrs. Emery had the sad misfortune to break her leg, the result of a slip, and this was actually responsible for hastening the end.

She was a great woman for home life, her family being her chief concern, but neighbours of long standing, speak of her as one of the most gentle, kindly and attentive in the hour of trouble or need. All called her “Grandma.”

Of the family of nine children, seven survive. The daughters are: Mrs. B. Makin (Bulli), Mrs. P. J. Taylor (Wollongong), Mrs. A. Cook (Rosemont) and Mrs. Jack Wilson (Grafton). The sons are Dave (Balgownie), Jim and Jack, both of Mt. Keira. There are 45 grandchildren, 89 great grandchildren and two great great grandchildren.

The remains were interred in the Presbyterian cemetery, Wollongong last Friday. South Coast Times and Wollongong Argus (NSW : 1900 - 1954) Friday 22 June 1934 p 10

Mrs. P. A. EMERY.

The death occurred at Mount Keira on Saturday last, Oct., of Mrs. Phoebe Anne Emery, widow of the late John Emery, and eldest daughter of the late Mr and Mrs Joseph Davis, who were pioneer residents of Mt. Keira.

The late Mrs. Emery left England with her parents at the age of two years, the voyage occupying three months in a sailing vessel.

As a girl she attended Wollongong School and later went to Tarrawanna to reside. While there she met with a painful accident, being almost burned to death.

Later on she worked for the late Mr. and Mrs. Ashley, and subsequently for the late Major MacCabe, a victim of Mt. Kembla explosion in 1902, in which her father and brother assisted with the rescue work.

In more recent years, Mrs. Emery has been widely known as a nurse, in which capacity she was ever ready to answer a sick call.

Mrs. Emery was held in high regard and she will be sadly missed by her family and all who knew her.

The family includes Thomasina (Mrs. W. Brannigan, Leichhardt), Frederick, Doris (Mrs. F. Elliott), John and George.

The funeral on Sunday moved from the residence of her daughter (Mrs F. Elliott) for the Presbyterian cemetery, Wollongong. South Coast Times and Wollongong Argus (NSW: 1900 - 1954) Friday 31 October 1941 p 3

Crown Land registers show James Emery as owner of “Bushbank”, a property of 96 acres at Kiama close to “Nethervale”, and also of at least two lots at Gerringong. One of these he donated for the public school while another, of approximately 14 acres, lies just north of present day Jubilee Park. The Kiama Independent of 28.5.1880 lists James as first settler on “Bonaira”. The title of “Bonaira” was vested in the name of W.M. Manning on 23.8.1839. It was described as Portion 13 and consisted of 1000 acres. It is believed that James took up a clearing lease at first, later purchasing about 68 acres which he named “Nethervale”.

At the Church of St. Francis Xavier, Wollongong, on Monday, the 15th September, by the Rev. Father Sumner, Mr. William English, of Jamberoo, to Mary, third daughter of Mr. Patrick Geraghty, of Bulli, Illawarra. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Monday 22 September 1856 p 6

On Sunday, 5th inst., there died at Rosebank, Mrs. Mary Anne English, after an illness of only two weeks. Mrs. English was 80 years of age, and came with her late husband, William English, to the Richmond about 50 years ago. She belonged to a remarkably long-lived family, being one of 15 children, of which seven still survive. It was at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Geraghty, that Bishop Doyle first stayed when he came, a young priest, to take charge of Lismore parish. Her father and mother both reached within a few days of the ripe age of 92 years. Mrs. English was remarkable throughout her life time for the faithful practice of her religion, and for her splendid example. She was born on the South Coast. Her children were James English (Atherton), Thomas English (Rosebank), Mrs. Tickle (Rosebank), and Mrs. Brown (Tweed district). Another son — Patrick — died about 17 years ago.

Some little time before her death the late Mrs. English made a gift of £50 to help the people of Rosebank to build a church. Her funeral took place on Monday, 6th inst., the last obsequies being read by the Right Rev. Monsignor McGuire, V.G.— R.I.P.

The station had been handsomely decorated for the occasion by two ladies of Dapto, Mrs. Evans and Mrs. Bovard, with palms, ferns, flowers, &c, while banners were displayed the whole   length of the building, beating the inscription.   “Welcome to Our Governor,” “Advance Illawarra,”   and “Success to Our Railway, ” elegantly worked on  calico with orange leaves, flowers, &c. The whole presented a singularly gay appearance, which was highly appreciated by all the members of the party, and by none more so than by Lord Carrington, who took occasion to remark upon the beauty of the decorations, and requested that the fair designers might be introduced to him.

A Melancholy Death at Quirindi.

A magisterial inquiry was held on Monday last by Mr. T. S. Grehan, J.P., at Quirindi Gap, touching the death of Ellen Evans, who died suddenly on the previous night. Abridged from the Murrurundi Times, May 29

John Evans deposed: I am 16 years of age, and am the son of deceased, Ellen Evans, and a man named John Evans is my father ; I was with my mother last night in a tent, near this house ; myself and mother had travelled from Narrabri, and were going towards New England, to look for a job of shepherding; mother, myself, and my three little sisters and the baby went to bed about 7 o'clock ; mother appeared quite well then ; about 12 o'clock she seemed to be in a sort of shaking fit ; the baby cried some time afterwards, and I gave mother a shake, to draw her attention to the baby, but she did not move ; I then covered up the baby, and he went off to sleep; about daylight I again tried to draw mother's attention to baby's crying; on touching her I found her cold, and on further examination found she was dead; my mother was over 30 years of age, but she was not forty; we are quite destitute; father left mother about twelve months ago, with myself and the four other children now here; the youngest is a male child, 2 years old, and the girls range from 6 to 10 years ; we used to travel on two old broken down horses, sometimes riding and sometimes walking; the rings now produced are those my mother wore; she said she was married at Newcastle, N. S. W., to my father ; I do not know any reason for my father leaving us; he used to beat mother when he got drunk; mother's maiden name was Ellen Cobtree, and she was a native of Wollongong ; I reported the death of my mother this morning to Mrs. Cook immediately I saw she was dead, and she (Mrs. Cook), afterwards saw mother's body in the tent ; myself and my little sisters and infant brother have no means of support; I am able to work; I do not know where father is now. After hearing the evidence of Dr. Davis, Mr. Grehan recorded as his finding that the deceased died from disease of the heart. The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser 1 June 1880

Death of Old Resident

By the death of Mrs. Margaret (grannie) Evans, which occurred in Bulli Hospital yesterday, the district has lost one of its most respected residents.

She was in her 96th year, having been born in Hintshire, Wales, in April 1843. She came to Australia over 60 years ago and had resided in the Bulli District ever since.

Always an active woman, she had taken a keen interest in the life of the community and was about as usual until about ten days ago. She was very fond of the surf and until 10 years ago was a daily visitor to the beach, winter and summer.

Her husband, Mr. Ned Evans, predeceased her about 15 years ago. She raised a large family, two of whom are residents of the Coast, William, of New Dapto Road, Wollongong, and Mrs. Barrett, of Raymond Road, Thirroul.

Quite a gloom was cast over the district when it became known that Mrs. Walter Evans had passed away after a very long and severe illness.

Although the end was not unexpected, as Mrs. Evans had been critically ill for some time past, it was fervently hoped by everyone that a change would come for the better. Mrs. Evans was an in valuable worker in all patriotic and charitable interests, and the work done by the family during the war period has earned for them the everlasting gratitude of the people of Corrimal.

Mrs. Sarah Jane Evans, who passed away at her home, 'Penrose,' Dapto, on Monday, was a member of one of the district's best known pioneer families, the late Mr. and Mrs. John Lindsay, of Kembla Park. She was 85 years of age.

She married the late Mr. Eustace Evans whose father was also amongst the early settlers of the district.

Gentle, home loving and a true Christian woman, the late Mrs. Evans won the esteem and appreciation of a wide circle of friends.

Her chief interest was in St. Luke's Church of England, Brownsville, and until advancing years prevented her, she was an indefatigable worker for several organisations within the church.

In earlier years, also, with her late husband, she was an active worker for the annual Dapto Show.

She is survived by her only son, Mr. Lindsay Evans, who is widely known throughout the Illawarra district for his activities in connection with dairying organisations. Mr. Charles Lindsay, of Smith st., Wollongong, is a brother and is the last surviving member of the family of the late Mr. and Mrs. John Lindsay.

Following a service at her late residence on Tuesday, the remains were laid to rest in St. Luke's C. of E. cemetery, Brownsville. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Thursday 8 July 1948 p 7

A very old resident of this district passed over to the 'great majority ' on Saturday last. We allude to Mrs. Evans, mother of Mr. E. R. Evans, J.P., of Penrose, Dapto.

The venerable lady, who was in her 89th year, died at her daughter's (Mrs. N. M. Hindmarsh) residence, Kiama, on Saturday afternoon. She had been unwell for about a month, though the illness was not regarded as serious. Only a few weeks ago she had an attack of influenza, and this appears to have told upon an otherwise vigorous constitution, and she gradually sank, passing peacefully away at the time stated.

The deceased lady was a resident of this district for about 52 years, being well known and widely respected by the older hands- Latterly she had been living with her daughter at Kiama. She leaves behind her four daughters, all comfortably settled in life, Mrs R Ritchie Bega;

Mrs. W. R. Hindmarsh, Robertson Mrs. N. M. Hindmarsh, Kiama; Mrs. F. A. Badgery, Sutton Forest— and one son (Mr. E. R. Evans). The mortal remains were brought from Kiama by train yesterday, and were afterwards interred in the Church of England cemetery, Dapto.

It is possible that her husband was charged with child desertion in 1890 after she became ill, had to enter a hospital and at last left him.

(From the Evening News.)

IN the divorce court on Tuesday the case of Ritchie v. Ritchie was heard before Mr. Justice Hargrave.

This was a divorce suit brought by James Ritchie of Fullerton, county of Georgiana, against his wife, Evaline Ritchie, formerly Evaline Sinclair, and Charles Everson, co-respondent. Mr. Coatts, instructed by Mr. McCulloch, appeared for petitioner. There was no appearance of respondent or co-respondent, or counsel on their behalf. The parties were married on February 29, 1871, at the Jamberoo Episcopalian church by the Rev. P. R. S. Bailey. Petitioner is aged thirty-three years, and a native of Femanagh, Ireland, and resided there until he was nineteen years old. He came to this colony and has resided at Bega and Jamberoo. The parties lived together after their marriage up to February 17, 1874, when Mrs. Ritchie left her home under the following circumstances: On February 17, 1874, she left with the expressed intention of going to the township of Kiama to purchase a sewing-machine and other articles for the house, for which purpose she had obtained from her husband a cheque for £8 12/6. Although she had mentioned to her husband she would return home at three o'clock that day, she did not then return, or at any time thereafter do so. From that day her husband has never seen her.

Mr. Ritchie deposed that he had treated her kindly, and that in 1876 she wrote to him and he answered her; he did not know Everson; he had her child with him; he denied that there was any collusion between them, and he urged that he would have been glad for her to have remained with him.

Harriet Bailey deposed that in 1876 the person whose portrait (Mrs. Ritchie's) she now looked upon called upon her; she was known as Mrs. Everson; she brought her husband (Everson) to witness's house, and they occupied the same room; she left witness's house to go to the Benevolent Asylum to be confined; this was said in Everson's presence; she had one child about thirteen months old; she behaved properly at witness's house.

Eliza Halrie, matron of the Benevolent Asylum, deposed that the photograph produced (Mrs. Ritchie's) she recognised as that of a woman who came to the asylum on the 4th May last year; she stated that she was married, and her husband was at the diggings; she came to be confined; about six weeks afterwards she said her husband had returned, and that he wished to visit her; he saw her, and brought a child with him about two years old, which, he said, was their child; some letter passed between them ; the person who visited her passed himself off as Mr. Ritchie; the petitioner now in court was not the Mr. Ritchie who visited her; she was confined of a female child, named Eleanor, 22nd July, 1876; he came ones, twice, and thrice a week to see her, as he was privileged, she being unwell ; a person purporting to be Everson's sister called, and in consequence of her communication, Mrs. Ritchie, who had been confined, was dismissed from the asylum.

Mary Ann Everson, wife of Charles Everson, the co-respondent, deposed that the portraits produced were those of her husband and

Mrs. Ritchie; these parties resided in Sydney with a Mr. Bailey and Mrs. Tucker; she knew they lived there as man and wife; witness's husband was a trooper in the district of Kiandra, which accounts for his being in uniform in the portrait; he was living with the witness there in 1873; witness did not know the Ritchies then.

Margaret Catherine Ritchie, sister of petitioner, deposed that she went to Smith-street, and at a house enquired for Mrs. Everson, her brother's wife answered to the name, and stated that two of the children she had were her own.

James Minty deposed that from April to August last, Mr. and Mrs. Everson (respondent and the co-respondent) rented from him a house, and lived in it together.

Isabelle Cassidy, co-respondent's sister, deposed that her brother resided with Mrs. Ritchie at Mrs. Tucker's, in 1874, as man and wife; they left there for Mrs. Bailey's; witness often visited them.

Catherine Tucker deposed that in 1875, in Duke-street, Mr. and Mrs. Everson lived at her house as man and wife; they went by the names of Charles and Eva Everson;

Everson's lawful wife called on her. James Ritchie, recalled, stated that the first child was called William Sinclair, born 1873, when they lived happily together.

His Honor hold that the issue of adultery was clearly proven, and granted a decree nisi, not to be made absolute until after the expiration of six months. Australian Town and Country Journal (Sydney, NSW: 1870 - 1907) Saturday 22 December 1877 p 12

EWING-March 1, at her late residence, North Sydney, Elizabeth, widow of the late Rev. T. C. Ewing, aged 72years. No flowers. The Sydney Morning Herald 2 March 1903


It is with deep regret the friends of the Ewing family will hear that Mrs. Elizabeth Ewing passed away at her residence, North Sydney, on

Sunday night. She was over 70 years of age, and for some years had suffered from a heart complaint which was the cause of death. The deceased lady resided in Murwillumbah for a number of years in the nineties, and won the respect and esteem of all who knew her. She was an earnest church worker, and assisted every charitable movement. She left Murwillumbah for Sydney late in 1900.

The deceased was the widow of the Rev. T. C. Ewing, who died over ten years ago. He was vicar of Wollongong for about 36 years.

Five daughters and five sons now mourn the loss of a devoted mother.

All are well-known and highly respected. The daughters are Mesdames R. Jenkins, Maccabe, W. P. Pope, R. P. Allen, and E. C. J. Marks, while the sons are Messrs. T. T. Ewing, M.H.R., Senator N. K. Ewing, J. Ewing, M.L.A. (W.A.), R. C. Ewing, J.P., and C. R. Ewing.

On Tuesday afternoon she was laid to rest, in the Wollongong Cemetery beside her late husband. The Byron Bay Record (NSW : 1902 - 1924) Saturday 7 March 1903 p 6
