Wallbank, Martha (1862–1934)

The death occurred in a city hospital on 11th Feb., of Miss Martha Wallbank, of Lower Mangrove, in her 71st year.

She was a member of one of the oldest local families, her grandfather having settled in the district about 120 years ago.

Miss Wallbank had been in declining health for some time past, and her death was not altogether unexpected. She was of a pleasant and gentle disposition and was well liked throughout the district. The funeral, which was largely attended, took place at the Lower Mangrove Church of England cemetery, Rev. A. E. Soxon, Gosford, officiating at the graveside.
