Nathaniel Everingham (1849–1940)

One of the early residents of the Wallamba, in the person of Mr. Nathaniel Everinghani, passed away at his home in Commerce street, Taree, early on Friday morning, aged 89 years. He had been ailing for a considerable period, and was confined to his bed for the last four months. Deceased was a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. James Everingham, and was born at Windsor. When he was 16 years old his parents moved to the Wallamba, where his father followed his trade as a ship builder. The subject of this notice was engaged in bush work and dairy farming, and was also employed as an overseer on road-building jobs. For a lengthy period he worked as a butcher, his employers including the late John Belford, one of the earliest butchers in Taree. Deceased bore an excellent character, and was held in high respect by all who know him. Over 70 years ago he was married, to Miss Matilda Basham, a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. John Basham. He is survived by hie widow, who is 92 years of age, and the following children: Messrs. J. W. and Chas. H Everingham (Wauchope), Ernest A. (Kemsey), Mrs. H. Howe (Haberfield), Mrs. B. Butler (Ashfield), Mrs. J. Manley (Portland, Vic), and Miss Sarah Everingham (at home). Four children predeceased him, viz., Mr. Elijah Everingham (Lismore), Mr Albert Everingham (Taree), and Mrs W. Emerton. The other died in infancy. The late Mr. Everingham was the last member of his own family, except for a step-brother, Mr. Enoch Everingham.

T. Howard the the mortuary arrangements in hand.
