OBITUARY. – Goulburn Herald Mon 25 Feb 1895
IT is with extreme regret that we record the death at eleven o'clock to-day of Mrs.Thomas Ayling of Wandsworth near Norwood. The deceased lady had been a resident of this district for upwards of forty years, and though leading a very retired life, in great part owing to long-continued ill-health, she was greatly respected and esteemed by those who knew her. She leaves a husband and several children, all grown up, one of whom Alderman Ayling, representing north ward of this city. Deceased lady was sixty-six years of age.

regards Val

Thanks Val.

I don't like some new things in TROVE.

Moving to the next page is easy but harder to move to the last page of the issue you are viewing.

Goulburn Evening Penny Post – Thursday Nov 1906
DEATH OF MR. THOMAS AYLING.
An old and esteemed resident of the city, Mr. Thomas Ayling, died at his residence, Clifford street, yesterday morning at a quarter to one o'clock in his 79th year. Mr. Ayling was born at Wandsworth, Surrey, England; and came to this State about 58 years ago.

On arrival he went to Twofold Bay as manager for a firm of merchants. After spending a few years there he came to Goulburn 55 years ago to fill the position of manager at Bradley's mill, where Barlett and Co.'s brewery now is. Mr. Ayling occupied that post for nine years, and then took a similar position at Conolly's mill, filling it for eleven years. He then leased a mill at Yass for three years, and at the completion of that term returned to Goulburn, where he had lived retired ever since.

The late Mrs. Ayling died eleven years ago. Three daughters and two sons survive, the daughters being Mrs. Cruickshank, Liverpool Plains; Miss Ayling, who has been housekeeping for her father and nursed him devotedly; and Mrs. Kendall, sewing mistress at the Goulburn District School; and the sons Alderman E. H. Ayling, of Goulburn, and Mr. G. Ayling. A younger son died some years ago, and two children died in their youth.

The deceased was a great reader, his taste running to the more solid subjects. He was well versed in English history, especially the political side of it, and was, needless to say, stoutly liberal and a firm adherent to free trade principles. On current affairs he was wont to bring a natural shrewdness, strengthened by a long and varied experience, to their analysis. He was of a quiet retiring disposition, and had that priceless gift, a contented mind.

another paper Nov 14 1906 has:
Thomas Ayling born 17 Dec 1827 Wandsworth arrived Australia about 1849 according to a paper - Some of his relatives are in Tasmania. His brother was the late Rev. John Ayling, Presbyterian clergyman, and he has a nephew, draftsman in the Goulburn Land Oflice. Alderman Ayling is a son of the deceased, and he leaves three daughters, two of whom are married. The funeral will take place at 3 p.m.tomorrow

** wonder if Charlotte Harkins was on same ship? - they married 2nd April 1849...
