Ayers, Ada Fisher (1843–1939)


Mrs. H. L. Ayers

The death of Mrs. H. L. Ayers, at her home at East terrace, Adelaide, on Saturday, at the age of 95, breaks another link with two prominent pioneer South Australian families. Third daughter of Sir John Morphett, of Cummins, Morphettville, she married Mr. Harry Lockett Ayers, son of Sir Henry Ayers, a former Premier of South Australia.

Always interested in philanthropic work, Mrs. Ayers was at one time president of the South Adelaide Creche, for which she did much during 20 years, for 18 of which she was a member of the committee. Surviving members of the family are Lady Lloyd (St. Peters), Mrs. Gerald A. Cowle (England), Miss Lucy Ayers, Mr. Sidney H. Ayers, and Mr. John Ayers.
