Lucas, Olivia (1761–1830)

On Saturday last was borne to the Tomb the mortal remains of Mrs. Olivia Lucas, one who arrived in the first Fleet of New South Wales. She was attended to the grave by a numerous assembly, a great part of whom were related to her, by descent or marriage, amongst whom were 5 of her sons and 4 daughters, with their respective husbands and wives, and their relatives on both sides, and also numerous grand-children. It was a faint resemblance of the Patriarchs of old.
