William Kendrick Biddulph (1830–1900)

An accident which unfortunately ended fatally, happened to an old resident of Mandemar, named William Biddulph, on Wednesday last. It appears that Biddulph, who had been to Moss Vale, was returning home along the Berrima road and when near Morris' Hill was thrown from his horse in such a manner that he fell into a pool of water on the roadside, where he was found sometime afterwards by a carter named Wil Nye in an unconscious condition. Assistance was at once summoned, and he was taken in a half-drowned condition to Moss Vale, where he received medical attention. On Friday he returned to his home at Mandemar, and was medically attended by Dr. Lambert of Berrima, but pneumonia set in and he died on Saturday night last. The deceased, who was an old and respected resident of the district, and for many years employed by the late Mr. Cordeaux of Bullio, was interred in the Church of England Cemetery at Berrima on Monday, the Rev. G. Sheppard officiating.
