Louisa Charlotte Arndell (1836–1914)

Died a couple of weeks since, and not long after her also unmarried sister, Louisa Charlotte Arndell, grand-daughter of Assistant-Surgeon Arndell, who came to Australia in the First Fleet with Dr. Balmain. The Misses Arndell were fine types of womanhood, and their brother, Thomas, was a sturdy settler of the Hawkesbury, at Cattai, where he farmed all his long and useful lifetime. Assistant-Surgeon Arndell, his grandfather, whose remains rest in St. Matthew's C. of E. Cemetery, Windsor, was commissioned under seal of George III. of the Grace of God, King of Great Britain, France, and Ireland, Defender of the Faith, etc., in 1786, and he retired on a pension of £50 per annum in 1793, when he settled upon land acquired by him at "Catty," or Catta', as it subsequently became known. In 1806 he reported to Governor King upon the ravages of a flood in the Hawkesbury, stating, amongst other things, that he had "sent a boat to the relief of 200 persons who had been two or three days without food, and some without clothing in the woods, for which purpose I have expended six bushels of wheat." Mr. T. A. Arndell, who recently retired from the position of Clerk of Appointments in the Sydney G.P.O., was a nephew of the ladies mentioned above.
