Anstey, Laura (1837–1927)

from Register

Mrs. Laura Anstey, who passed away recently at Glenelg, belongs to South Australian history, as she was the youngest of the seven Miss Leworthy's, well known in old colonial days. One of the seven was the wife of John Hindmarsh, jun., son of the first Governor of that name, who then lived in the old part of Adare, Victor Harbour, now belonging to Mrs M. E. Cudmore. John Hindmarsh and family migrated to New Zealand, where their descendants still reside. Another Miss Leworthy became Mrs. Richards Lindsay, and a third (Charlotte Henrietta) was the wife of Arthur Fydel Lindsay, of Edzell, Victor Harbour. He was at one time M.P. for Encounter Bay. Mr. Arthur Lindsay died aged 91. Malcolm Henry Leworthy died in 1889, and was buried in West Terrace Cemetery by his old friend, Canon Howell. It was the canon's last act before leaving South Australia for New Zealand. The Leworthy's lived at The Glen, which still belongs to their descendant, Mr. Lindsay Page.
