Augusta de Mestre (1845–1930)

from Sydney Morning Herald

The death occurred at Wollongong on Wednesday of Mrs. Augusta de Mestre, widow of Mr. Andre de Mestre. Mrs de Mestre, who was born in 1845, had resided in the Shoalhaven district for 70 years and with her husband – who died at the age of 95 years 12 years ago – occupied the one-time widely-known Terara estate. She was a notable worker for church and charities and largely aided the social life of the community. Several sons and daughters survive. A daughter, Miss Sarah de Mestre, served in the great war, and was awarded the Royal Red Cross. The late Mrs. de Mestre was an aunt of Mr Roi de Mestre, the artist, and sister-in-law of Mr. G. W. S. Rowe, of the Rosehill Race Club.
