NLA NEWSPAPERS – MRS KENDALL AND CHILDREN 1881

 

FROM THE BRISBANE COURIER MAIL OCTOBER 1881: PURELY SPECULATIVE. MARY JOSPEHINE YATES, MELINDA’S DAUGHTER DIED FROM INFLAMMATION OF THE LUNGS EARLY IN 1881 AT HER HOME IN MARYBOROUGH. IN OCTOBER OF THE SAME YEAR A MRS KENDALL WITH CHILDREN APPEARS IN THE SHIPPING NEWS.

  1. ON THE LADY BOWEN SAILING INTO BRISBANE FROM ROCKHAMPTON VIA BUNDABERG AND MARYBOROUGH
  2. ON THE GOVERNOR BLACKALL WITH 8 CHILDREN SAILING SOUTH FOR SYDNEY

WHICH MRS KENDALL IS THIS ? IS IT CONNECTED WITH THE DEATH OF MARY JOSEPHINE YATES?

IT COULD WELL BE MRS JOSEPH KENDALL , WIFE OF CAPTAIN JOSEPH KENDALL, BUT SHE IS A PEER OF MELINDA’S AND AS UNLIKELY TO BE TRAVELLING WITH CHILDREN AS MELINDA. COULD MELINDA HAVE BROUGHT HER GRANDCHILDREN SOUTH FOR A TIME ? WE KNOW LITTLE OF THESE YEARS .
