Forster, Elizabeth (Eliza) (1800–1876)

from Evening News (Sydney)

The outgoing mail will carry out intelligence to the Hon. William Forster, Agent-General for New South Wales, of the sudden demise of his mother, which took place at Coogee Bay, where deceased had been for some time staying, between half-past 5 and 6 o'clock yesterday afternoon. The deceased lady, who was the sister of the late Hon. John Blaxland. Esq. M.L.C., left the hotel about the hour first named, for the purpose of taking a bath, and was followed about half an hour afterwards by her daughter, who went out for a similar purpose. On arriving near the ladies' bath Miss Foster found her mother in a sitting posture on a rock, life being extinct. The deceased gentlewoman was 76 years of age.
