Mary Ann Hall (1769–1827)

Death – Lately at Pitt-town, Mrs. [Mary Ann] Hall, wife of Mr. George Hall, of that district, in her 58th year. The interment took place on Monday, the 2nd of July, and the funeral was attended by most of the respectable part of the community from some distance within those districts. Mrs. Hall and family arrived in the Coromandel, in 1802, in company with several other free settlers, who, for the most part, became residents of the Hawkesbury. She was mother of a numerous family, whom she reared to habits of industry, in her own example. She is described by a very intimate friend as the careful North of England farmer's wife. The old gentleman, as may be expected, endures exceeding grief; and the whole family may be truly said to be the house of mourning.
