Waterhouse, Maria Augusta (1825–1906)

Mrs. M. A. [Maria Augusta] Waterhouse, widow of the late Rev. J. B. Waterhouse, died recently at Waverley in her 82nd year. The deceased lady took an active part in church matters, and largely identified herself with the social, religious, and mission branches of the Methodist connection. She was highly esteemed for her estimable qualities, and her counsel was eagerly sought by many of the younger generation of her time. Mrs. Waterhouse arrived in Van Diemen's Land in 1848, and after spending some years there she went to South Australia, eventually coming to New South Wales in 1804. She leaves six sons—Mr. G. J. Waterhouse, of 3S Pitt-street, Sydney; Mr. John Waterhouse, M.A., head master of the Boys' High School; Mr. R. S. Waterhouse, Sydney; Mr. A. H. Waterhouse, Norfolk Island; Mr. J. B. Waterhouse, Lord Howe Island; and Mr. L. P. Waterhouse, of Bulli.
