Marian (Minnie) Weigall (1840–1919)

The Australasian says that by the death of Mrs. Theyre Weigall, Melbourne loses one of its most notable personalities, and an old colonist, Mrs. Weigall having arrived here when a very young child, and was 79 when she died. She was the widow of the late Mr. Theyre Weigall (curator of intestate estates), who predeceased her seven years ago, and was Miss Marian A'Beckett, daughter of the late Mr. T. T. A'Beckett, registrar of the diocese of Melbourne. Mrs. Weigall and her late husband lived practically all their lives at Brighton, and it is in that district that their loss is felt most keenly, footprints in their practical and useful lives being traceable in all directions. The surviving family consists of four sons; Mr. Theyre A'Beckett Weigall, K.C., Dr. R. E. Weigall, Dr. Gerald C. Weigall, Mr. W. F. Weigall (Weigall and Crowther, solicitors), and Dr. Albert Weigall. The only daughter is Mrs. A. Pelham Chase, and there are 20 grand-children, one of whom (the daughter of Dr. R. E. Weigall), married recently Major Hildred Carlisle, son of the late Sir Edward Carlisle. Mrs. Weigall passed away on December 5 at the residence of Mrs. Pelham Chase, Williams -road, Toorak.
