Rodd, Sarah Janet (1821–1896)

At Five Dock, on the morning of Wednesday, December 30 last, the wife of Brent Clements Rodd, the senior attorney of the Supreme Court, passed away after a long and lingering illness of many months, regretted and idolised by all who knew her, in the 77th year of her age, and 58th of her wedded life. She was the daughter of the late James Robertson, of Plashett, Jerry's Plains, and sister of the late Sir John Robertson. The primary cause of her demise was acute influenza, bronchitis, pneumonia, and last by nervous exhaustion. She bore her pain with fortitude and patience. Mr. Rodd was born in Barnstaple, Devonshire. He arrived here in 1822. He is now 87 years old, and in fair health.
