Crossland, Mary Ann (1872–1897)

Mr. T. E. MacNevin, the Parramatta District Coroner, held a magisterial inquiry at the residence of Mr. Burton Crossland, Berowra Creek, Hawkesbury, on Thursday, respecting the death of his daughter Mary Ann Crossland. The mother of the deceased narrated an account of how, on November 23, the girl was walking towards the fireplace, in the kitchen when she fell in a fit, and a kettle of boiling water fell over, causing her to be severely scalded. She was placed under the care of Dr. Foster, of Wahroonga, but gradually sank, and died on December 8. The girl had had a fit three weeks before her death, and had been subject to fits for the last seven years. The magistrate found that the deceased died from the effects of scalding injuries accidentally received.
