Goulburn Evening Penny Post (NSW : 1881 - 1940) Saturday 24 April 1886
Mrs. George Watman, residing with her husband in Crookwell, and a very old and respected resident, was taken suddenly ill. Dr. Fitzpatrick was immediately called, and did all that was possible to relieve her, but she died within an hour after. Great sympathy is expressed for her husband and relations.

EDIT [and a very old and respected resident] if it's the same Sarah she was only 39. Only one WATMAN death in 1886 which is Sarah.

NSW Marriage 1582/1864 WATMAN GEORGE - PAUL SARAH ANN - BERRIMA ** 26 Dec 1864

Holy Trinity Church Berrima
No. 73
George Watman - Camden Farmer 23 Bowral - Elizabeth Ann Batham - Farmer
Sarah Ann Paul - England - 18 Bowral - Ann Bensley - Farmer
26th December 1864 By me J. S. Hassall
Both signed
Witnesses: Thomas ? (his x mark) Paul, Ann Julia Bensley


Rev. Hassall likes to list the mother's name and then the father's occupation.

I read the first witness as Thomas but there is no Thomas - James sen, William, James & Henry.


NSW BMD has her death as 30 April. ???

Goulburn Herald (NSW : 1881 - 1907) - Saturday 24 April 1886 p.3
CROOKWELL
Obituary.
... Mrs. George Watman also succumbed rather suddenly to a complaint she had been suffering from for some time, and which would naturally result in a sudden termination. Her funeral took place today.

NSW BMD is down so I can't check a few things.

Birth of daughter Elizabeth who married Peterson.

If that's the right death in 1907 then it's an error with father as Richard W.

Marriage has father as Wm.

Don't have Richard's arrival so no age in shipping record to compare.

Death 15143/1885 WOODWARD MARGARET - GEORGE E DIED GUNNING GUNNING

Marriage has father as Thos.

Are both deaths wrong? Or right deaths and both with error for father's name?

Assuming there isn't an error or it hasn't been omitted, this is close.. A couple of trees have it also.

Births Q2 1847
Poll Sarah Ann
Tunstead &c
13 311

One of those trees has this..

Thanks Geoff.

Dates are ok for James and Anne so 20th for Sarah is rather odd. Newspaper says 24th.

NSW BMD is back up and death is 30th.

Perhaps the headstone is correct.

Re the Tunstead birth it seems rather odd it's not Mitford.

I presume a Sarah can't be found in 1861 who would fit.

I suppose you could only assume why she was b. Tunstead, if it was her. Even the shipping record gives L. Fransham.

There isn't another Sarah with birth Tunstead that I can see :rolleyes:
