Newland, Jane Isabella (1851–1939)

Mrs Jane Isabella Newland, wife of one of the best known figures of the early days of South Australia, the author of Paving the Way died early last night.

Mrs. Newland was the daughter of Mr. W. E. Layton, of Sydney, and was married in September, 1872. Immediately after the wedding she accompanied her husband to his station at Marra, outside Wilcannia. She accompanied him on all his travels, and made two or three visits to England. In recent years she had been living at North Adelaide.

Mrs Newland was a cultured woman, who preferred to make her home her main interest. There were five sons of the marriage—Sir Henry Simpson Newland, Messrs. E. M. Newland, V. M. Newland, and Ralph D. Newland, and Dr. Clive Newland. Sir Henry Newland and Mr. V. M. Newland, formerly member of Parliament for North Adelaide, survive their mother.
