At 4 a.m. on Sunday, 22nd June, at East-
Market-street, Richmond, a dear old lady,
Mrs. Emily Ashton, passed peacefully away
to that bourne from whence no traveller
returns. The late Mrs. Ashton was 98
years of age, and a native of Richmond.
She was beloved by all who knew her, and
the great age to which she lived proved
that she had in her physical composition
much of the hardy vigor that has made the
Hawkesbury native famous. She was always
a woman of active habits, and lived the
simple life which gives health and long
days of usefulness. She knew New South
Wales when the colony was in its swadling -
clothes, so to speak, and when the present
site of the big city of Sydney was nearly,
all primeval forest. Up to within 18 months
of her death the good old lady enjoyed ex-
cellent health, and about that time became
an invalid. She was tenderly nursed by
her daughter, Mrs. J. Roberts, who has at
tained her 78th year, and Mrs. J. Ross,
of Lennox-street, was ever in attendance.
The late Mrs. Ashton could tell some in
teresting tales of the stirring early days,
and her death snaps another link of the
chain which binds the present with the
past. When she died she was the oldest
native of the district, and lived the whole
of her long life in Richmond. Born in a
cottage where now stands Mr. Samuel Orch-
ard's store, after many shifts about the town,
she wandered back to the old spot, and
died in a cottage, on the allotment on which
she was born. Some years ago the late
Mrs. Ashton was famous for her excellent
catering. At the big race meetings at the
Hawkesbury, and at the shows, and other
important events, she was a familiar figure
and the fine dinners she provided are still
remembered by those who were always glad
to patronise her in those days. Her husband,
Thomas Ashton, was an Englishman. Their
family consisted of seven children. Two
died in infancy, and others who predeceased
their mother were Sophia (Mrs. J. Ezzy)
and Mr. Joseph Ashton, who was well-known
in the Hawkesbury district up to the time
of his death a little over twelve months
ago. Those who survive her are Mrs. Jas.
Roberts (Leichhardt), Mr. T. W. Ashton (Nar
randera), and Mr. John Ashton (Clarendon).
There are 25 grandchildren, 77 great grand-
children, and three great great grandchild-
ren— quite a little, colony of direct descen-
dants. The subject of this notice was the
daughter of the late William Madgwick, sen.,
who reached , the great age of 108 years,
and her mother lived to 89 years of age;
while her husband was 90 when he died.
The funeral took place on the afternoon of
June 24, when the remains were interred
in St. Peter's Church of England cemetery,
Richmond. Rev. S. G. Best conducted the '' '
burial service, and Mr. A. Price was the
