Charlotte Hampton (1829–1897)

Another old resident passed away early on Saturday morning in the person of Mrs. [Charlotte] Hampton at the age of 68 years. The deceased, who has been suffering from ill-health for a considerable time, only survived her late husband, Mr. Aaron Hampton, a little over twelve months. He was a wellknown personage in connection with the Railway Department, having been brought out from England in the early days to assist in the construction of the Great Northern line. General sympathy is felt for the members of the bereaved family, who are highly respected citizens. The funeral took place yesterday, and was largely attended.
