Rodd, Teresa Emily (1856–1938)

Mrs. Teresa Emily Rodd, a well-known resident of Manly, who died recently in her 83rd year, was the daughter of Dr. George Maddox, a Tasmanian medical practitioner and grand-daughter of Captain George Maddox who saw active service during the Peninsular War and fought in the battle of Waterloo. Captain Maddox came to Australia in the pioneer days.

Mrs Rodd’s mother was the daughter of John Lakeland who for many years was superintendent of convicts in Van Diemen’s Land. Mr Lakeland’s wife was Mary Arndell who was born at Parramatta in 1793. She was the daughter of Thomas Arndell (grandson of Thomas, fifth Lord Arundell of Wardour) who came to Sydney with the first fleet in 1788 as assistant surgeon. He was the first doctor in Parramatta. It is noteworthy that Dr Thomas Arndell’s original land grant at Caddi on the Hawkesbury River still remains after six generations in the Arndell family.

Mrs Rodd remembered Double Bay when it was a camping ground for Aborigines and Rushcutters Bay when its flat land was covered with rushes and small blue crabs. Her husband, Mr John E. Tremayne Rodd, predeceased her. She is survived by a son, Mr E. S. Tremayne Rodd of Manly, a daughter Leila and two grandchildren. One grandson, Commander Geoffrey Tremayne Rodd, was killed while flying in Switzerland.
