Mabel Harriet Lillingston (1866–1925)

Mrs. Lillingston, wife of Mr. C. A. G. Lillingston, of Yulgilbar, Upper Copmanhurst, Grafton district, N.S.W., died last month at the age of 59. Yulgilbar is one of the most famous properties in the Northern Rivers district, and Mrs. Lillingston was beloved by everyone. She was a daughter of the late E. D. Ogilvie, of Yulgilbar Estate, and was married in 1888 in London, whence she accompanied her husband to India, where he occupied a responsible position in the Indian Civil Service. Some seven years later they came to Australia, and soon afterwards went to live at Yulgilbar, which at that time comprised over 200,000 acres of leasehold and some 60,000 acres freehold. To-day there are only about 30,000 acres of freehold left, but a couple of years ago it was still carrying over 7000 head of cattle. The late Mrs. Lillingston is survived by her husband and three children.
