Stuart, Constance Campbell (1873–1926)

Another link of the pioneer families is broken this week in the death of Mrs. G. P. Stuart, wife of Mr. G. P. Stuart, formerly manager of the Union Bank of Australia, in Brisbane. Mrs. Stuart was the youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Tom Petrie, after whom the town of Petrie was named. Her father was one of the pioneers of Brisbane, and his book Tom Petrie's Reminiscences which is regarded as one of the best authorities on Brisbane's early days, was written by his daughter, who was then Constance Campbell Petrie. In the book she managed to keep to her father's pleasant conversational style, and much valuable aboriginal folk lore and information is contained in the volume. Old Mrs. Petrie, who has attained an advanced age, is still living, and so is a sister of the gifted authoress, who had been an invalid for some years prior to her death.
