Ellen Biddulph (1830–1918)

Another of the pioneer residents of the district passed away last week in the person of Mrs. Ellen Biddulph whose death occurred at her late residence, Merrigang street, Bowral, on Friday night last. The deceased lady, who was in her 88th year, was for many years a well-known resident of the Mandemar portion of the district, coming in her later years to reside at Bowral, and in both localities she was held in the greatest esteem by all who had the pleasure of her acquaintance. She was twice married, and leaves a grown-up family by each husband, as well as a number of grand-children. The funeral took place on Sunday afternoon, when the remains were interred in the Church of England portion of the Bowral general cemetery. The service was conducted by the Rev. T. H. Distin Morgan, and Mr. J. Beavan carried out the funeral arrangements.
