Throsby, Elizabeth Isabella (Betsey) (1807–1891)

from Goulburn Herald (NSW)

We have to announce the death at Throsby Park, Moss Vale, on Wednesday last, of Mrs. Elizabeth Throsby, at the age of eighty-four. The deceased was a daughter of Mr. William Broughton, commissary-general in the early days of the colony, and in 1824 married the late Mr. Charles Throsby, and she resided at Throsby Park ever since. She was mother of a numerous family, most of whom survive her. Amongst them are the present mayor of Moss Vale, Mr. H. N. Throsby, and Mr. P. H. Throsby of Bong Bong; and amongst her grand-children are Mrs. R. E. Zouch of Goulburn, Mr. A. B. Young, and the Messrs. Arnheim. Altogether she leaves seventy-eight grand children and eighteen great grand children. Mrs. Throsby was very highly respected, and associated with her husband, who died some thirty or forty years ago, did much to improve the condition of society in the early days of the district. The church at Bong Bong was created entirely at her husband's expense, and on his own ground.
