Maddox, Frances Louisa (1858–1927)

Miss Frances Louisa Maddox died at St. Luke's Hospital on Monday in her 70th year. Miss Maddox was a daughter of Dr. George Maddox, of Launceston, and granddaughter of Captain George T. Maddox, who, after fighting at the Battle of Waterloo, arrived in Sydney as Deputy Commissariat-General, and who held a similar position afterwards in Van Diemen's Land. Her mother was a daughter of John Lakeland, superintendent of convicts in Van Diemen's Land, and of Mary Arndell, who was born at Parramatta in 1793. Miss Arndell was a daughter of Dr. Thomas Arndell, who was a surgeon in the first fleet arriving in Australia in 1788.

Miss Maddox lived most of her life with her cousin, Mrs. James White, at Cranbrook, Rose Bay, and Kirkham, Camden. For the latter part of her life she had lived with her elder sister, Mrs. John E. Tremayne Rodd, at Orwell, Potts Point.
