Armfield, Jane (1832–1898)

Mrs. [Jane] Armfield, who was admitted to the Bowral Cottage Hospital on April 14 suffering from concussion of the brain, the result of a buggy accident, died at the institution at an early hour on Sunday morning. The deceased lady, who was 67 years of age, had been unconscious nearly the whole of the time since the accident, and though Dr. Valleck, the medical officer in attendance, was unremitting in his attention, very little hope was ever entertained of her recovery. The funeral took place yesterday, the remains being interred in the general cemetery.
