Wardell, Jane (1758–1830)

On Thursday last, the 14th instant, on her son's farm at Bathurst, in the 73d year of her age, Jane, the relict of the late Robert Wardell, Esquire, late of Westbourne-place, King's Private-road, and formerly of the City of York. This melancholy and unlooked- for event, was the result of an accident which occurred to Mrs. Wardell on the 1st instant, on her journey to Bathurst, in company with her son and grand-daughter. The horse which she rode, had been suffered to drink at a brook on the road side, and on his passing through the water, he made a sudden rear at the very steep bank, which occasioned his rider to lose her balance. The thigh bone was fractured by the fall; Mrs. W. was immediately conveyed to Bathurst, and expired very suddenly on the fourteenth morning of the day after the accident, at a time when the fullest hopes were entertaned of her recovery. By this severe dispensation of Providence, the relatives of the deceased have sustained a loss which they feel can never be repaired. To them she was a blessing—mild and unostentatious in her manners, she acquired the esteem of all who knew her; she was steadfast in her friendship, but above all, sincere in her religion, and devoted to her God. Her remains were interred in the burial ground at Bathurst, previously to their being conveyed to England.
