Murphy, Jane Emma (1854–1924)

A member of one of the pioneer families, Mrs. Jane Emma Murphy, died recently at her home, "The Briars," Mornington, at the age of 79 years. Mrs. Murphy was the wife of Mr. Jas. Murphy, of Calga Station, N.S.W., and her father was born at "The Briars," St. Helena, and was the first station holder on the Mornington Peninsula. Mrs. Murphy's charitable interests were continuous during her long life. She was at her death, and had been for many years, a member of the committee of management of Queen Victoria Hospital, and had formerly been a prominent member of the Children's Hospital committee. Mrs Murphy leaves one son, Mr. Alexander Balcombe Murphy, who fought at Gallipoli as an English soldier, where he was wounded. He is now a pastoralist, his home being on Kooyong road, Toorak.
