Kilpatrick, Fanny Louisa (1848–1927)

On the 27th of February Mrs. Fanny Louisa Kilpatrick, of Ballybally Farm, Beverley, died, in her 77th year. The deceased lady was a member of the Hancock family, whose forbears landed at Fremantle from London by the ship Warrior in 1830. During her childhood Mrs Kilpatrick accompanied her sister (Mrs. Emma Withnell) – Mother of the North-West — to Tien Tsin Harbor (afterwards Cossack) as a passenger by J. and W. Bateman’s schooner Sea Ripple in 1863. These hardy pioneers assisted the late John Withnell in the work of building the first house in those inhospitable latitudes where those who came afterwards always found a hearty welcome awaiting them.
