Huxley, Mary (1815–1894)

Mrs S. [Mary] Huxley, wife of the late Samuel Huxley, of Pitt Town, mother of Messrs Thomas Huxley, of Castlereagh (a former resident of Windsor), and Samuel Huxley, blacksmith, of Pitt Town Road, passed away last Monday morning at the Windsor Hospital, at the advanced age of 80 years. It will be remembered that in December last deceased met with an accident at her home at Pitt Town, and was admitted to the Windsor Hospital on 1st of this year for treatment, she having sustained a broken thigh. After being in the Hospital for three months, she recovered from the accident, but became blind. Owing to her advanced age her system broke up, and she has gradually declined, succumbing to senile decay on Monday morning last. Deceased's late husband was a farmer at Pitt Town, and in that portion of the district most of her life-time was spent. Deceased was buried in the Church of England Cemetery at Pitt Town on Tuesday last, Mr. Primrose being the undertaker.
