Bussell, Charlotte (1803–1899)

News was received in Perth on the 28th ult., by the English mail, of the death of Mrs. Charlotte Bussell at the ripe age of 96. Mrs Bussell, who had resided in Paris for many years, was one of the oldest of Western Australian colonists, having arrived here in 1839. She resided with her husband, Mr. J. G. Bussell, at Cattle Chosen, near Busselton, until 1876, some months after Mr. Bussell's death, when she went to England, and finally made her home in Paris, where she has welcomed many Western Australians passing through that city. Mrs. Bussell leaves five daughters—Mrs. Cookworthy, now in England, Mrs Edward Brockman, of the Warren, Mrs. F. C. Vines (widow), at Vasse, Miss Bussell, who was with her mother at the time of her death; and Mrs. H. C. Prinsep, of this city. Mrs. Bussell, it may be mentioned, always attributed her long life of 96 years to the 40 years which she spent in Western Australia.
