86. Frances Jane Teale

Mrs. Frances Jane Rochester died at the age of 86 on Sunday, 9th ultimo, at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. Perrin, 63 Young-street, Croydon. She was the mother of Ald. G. J. Rochester, of Burwood Council, and sister of Mrs. Walker, of George street, Windsor. Mrs. Rochester was a direct descendant of Henry Kable and Susannah Holmes, who were married in a tent at Sydney Cove in 1788 by the Rev. Richard Johnston — the first wedding of white people in Australia. Henry Kable was an official of the First Fleet, and he claimed to have carried ashore Governor Phillip when he first landed at Port Jackson. Kable was afterwards chief constable of the settlement at Sydney Cove, and later conducted a store at George street North, where the police station now stands. Mrs. Rochester's grandfather, Mr. Teale, was headmaster of Windsor School, and also operated an old-style stone flour gristing mill at Windsor; his son, John Henry Teale (Mrs. Rochester's father) was a farmer at South Creek, Windsor. Mrs. Rochester's married life was spent in the Mudgee district. Between 20 and 30 years ago, after the death of her husband, she removed to Sydney, living at North Sydney and Epping, and about two years ago went to her daughter's residence at Croydon. A first cousin was Mr. John Teale, formerly headmaster of Burwood Public School. Mrs. Walker, of Windsor, is the sole surviving sister. Three sons and three daughters survive — Ald. Rochester, Mrs. E. A. Rochester. (Arncliffe), Mrs. J. A. Rochester (North Sydney), Mrs. Drey (New Zealand) , Mrs. Perrin (Croydon), and Mrs. W. Fletchett (Dulwich Hill). The funeral, at Rookwood cemetery, was very largely attended.

David Gosper

It is with great regret that we have to record the death of another of Windsor's highly respected residents, in the person of Mr. David Gosper. The deceased was a son of Mr. Alderman J. T. Gosper, of "The Terrace," Windsor, and had lived in the Hawkesbury all his life. He was a  man of quiet, unassuming nature-a characteristic trait of the family - but in his own quiet way did much good, and won the respect of all with whom he came in contact. He was 48 years of age, and leaves a widow and four children - one son and three daughters-including Misses Annie Grace (a nurse), Eva and Edie, and Mr. Harry Gosper, a porter on the railway at Werris Creek.  Deceased had been a great sufferer for over twelve months, with that dire complaint consumption, and although everything possible was done for him by those near and dear and skilful doctors, he gradually sank and passed away on Sunday night. Recently he spent three months with his sister at Bathurst, but the benefits he derived by the change were but temporary, and the symptons of his old complaint soon returned, and his friends realised there were no hopes for his recovery. Sincere sympathy is expressed in all sides for the bereaved widow and members of the family at the loss of their breadwinner.  The funeral took place on Tuesday afternoon, and was largely attended. The coffin was a polished cedar, with silver mountings, emblematic of the order of Oddfellowship. Deceased was a very old member of the Prince of Wales Lodge, the brethren of which followed the remains to their last resting place in St. Matthew's Church of England. The pall-bearers were Messrs F. J, Mortley, J. P., (Mayor), Joseph Ward, J.P., L. J. Barnett, G. Kirwan, and G. Pye. At the church the Rev. S. G. Fielding delivered an address, and paid a high tribute of respect to the memory of the deceased. A hymn was also sung, and the " Dead March " played as the corpse was conveyed from the church to the grave. The funeral arrangements were carried out by Mr. Thomas Primrose.  Wreaths were forwarded by the following :-Mrs. Berckleman and family, Mr. and Mrs. W. Holland and family, Mr. and Mrs. J. Upton and family, Mr. and Mrs. J. Ward and family, Mr. T. Hulbert and family, Mrs. Ti Eather and family, Mr. T. Primrose and family, Mrs. F. Onus, Mr. and Mrs. Rea and family, Mr. and Mrs. E.

Emanuel Isiah Durrington

It is with the sincerest regret that we have to record the passing of one of our most popular old district identities in the person of Mr. Emanuel Iziah Durrington, who passed away at his home at Cornwallis on Wednesday evening of last week, after a prolonged and trying illness, at the advanced age of 83 years. The late Mr. Durrington, who had spent his whole life in the Hawkesbury district, and for more than half a century had engaged in farming, and dairying pursuits, was widely known and respected, for, although never one to seek prominence, his sterling character earned him the firm friendship of all with whom he came in regular contact, and his friends in this district were legion. He was never known to refuse a request for help in any deserving cause, and in various church activities, especially, the church workers have lost a friend in his demise. His manner of living and example generally was an inspiration to all who knew him intimately, and seldom has the news of the passing of one of our sturdy band of older residents been received with more sincere regret. Some 54 years ago deceased was married to a member of a well-known and respected Hawkesbury family in Miss Lavinia Teale, daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Henry Teale, who survives him, together with three sons, Harold (Cornwallis), Eric (Richmond), and Athol (Richmond) and four daughters, Josie (Mrs. J. Pye, Lidcombe), Ivy (Mrs. C . Lavender, Windsor) , Dulcie (Mrs. D. Lavender, Windsor) and Irene (Cornwallis), to whom every sympathy is extended in the loss of a devoted husband and father. The funeral left deceased's late residence on Thursday for the Church of England cemetery, Windsor, where the interment took place, the Rev. C. L. Williams officiating at the graveside, a representative gathering of old friends being present to pay their last respects. The funeral arrangements were conducted by Mr. Chandler, of Windsor.
