MELANCHOLY BOAT ACCIDENT-On Sunday last, a party consisting of Mr. Richard McDonald, Mr. William Wood, of Hunter Street, Mrs Wood, and Mrs Noblett, started from the Gas Company’s Wharf, on a boating party down the harbour, in a boat belonging to Mr. McDonald; the boat is thirteen feet in length, and carried sprit and fore-sail; shortly after 2 pm they arrived at Clarke’s Island, where they dines; after dinner they went a short distance from the island, for the purpose of fishing, after sometime the ladies expressed a shih to return home, when Mr. McDonald got the mast up, an pulled, up the kellick, before putting up the sprit, Mr. McDonald climbed about eighteen inches up the mast, for the purpose of disentangling a small flag at the top – simultaneously the ladies rose from their seats, and immediately the boat capsized, precipitating the whole party into the water, the boat filling in an instant, and several times turning over and over. Mrs Noblett caught hold of Mr. McDonald, who sustained her in the water until assistance was rendered by Mr. Dobson, who heard a shout from Clarke’s island as he was on his way to Sydney, and put back to see what was the matter. When the boat overset, Mr. Wood caught his wife’s clothes with one hand and the boat with the other, until being much exhausted, he clenched his wife’s hand as firmly as he could to the stern of the boat, and swam to shore, where his calling attracted Mr. Dobson’s attention to the scene of the catastrophe. On Mr. Dobson’s arrival, he found Mr. McDonald on the keel of the boat, holding up Mrs Noblett by the chin. Mr. Dobson took them into his boat, and on his way to the island to take in Mr. Wood he saw Mrs Wood under the surface of the water, and picked her up, but she appeared to be perfectly dead; her head was under water, and her clothes in the form of a balloon about her. Having taken Mr. Wood on board, Mr. Dobson made for Darling Point, where Mr. Lingard resides, and efforts were made to resuscitate Mrs Noblett and Mrs Wood, but without avail; no symptoms of remaining life in either having shown itself after being taken from the water. The bodies were then removed from Mr. Lingard's to Rushcutter Bay, where Dr Shanks was called in, but the unfortunate ladies were past all recovery.

  • On 5 October 1853,Frances Elizabeth Staines's father, Samuel Staines died in Parish of Camperdown, Sydney, at age 34. The cause of Samuel's death was a bit of a mystery. Betty Staines notes make reference to "Great grandma lived with the Judge who was very nice to her when workmen met with accident". Even though Betty lists the reason for Eliza's death, she only hinted at Samuel being involved in some sort of accident. Samuel's tombstone shows his death date as 7 October, his Death Certificate shows 5 October. The cause of death is not given on the certificate

    The following notice appeared in the Sydney Morning Herald on 5th October 1853 "FUNERAL.—The friends of the late Mr. Samuel Staines, Farrier, are respectfully invited to attend his funeral, to move from his late residence, Flood's Buildings, Elizabeth-street, tomorrow (Friday) morning, at a quarter to 8 o'clock.

  • On 18 January 1856,Frances Elizabeth Staines's mother, Eliza Sydie died in Parish of Camperdown, Sydney, at age 45. Family hearsay has it that Eliza accidentally swallowed a pin, and knew she was going to die. She arranged for the children to be looked after by friends and acquaintances. The following notice appeared in the Sydney Morning Herald on Saturday 19 January 1856.
    " FUNERAL.-The Friends of the deceased, Mrs. ELIZA STAINES, are invited to attend her funeral; to move from her late residence, Elizabeth street, THIS (Saturday.)2,4"
  • Frances Elizabeth Staines was taken into the care of Martha Croxford wife of Frederick Miller.

Miller's three sons friends of Great Uncle Sam.2"

  • Frances Elizabeth Staines died on 15 August 1866 in Glebe, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. Family hearsay has it that Frances drowned in a boating accident while sailing on the harbour with friends. Such and accident did occur, but the Frances Staines involved was this Frances aunt, sister of Samuel and Thomas. This Frances' death certificate indicates that she died of Pulmonary Consumption, and that she had been receiving treatment from a Dr Gilhooly for 2 years before her death. At the time of her death Frances was living in Glebe Road. The informant was Fred Miller most likely a son of the Miller family who took Frances in after her parent's death. Her death was announced in the Empire newspaper:-" STAINES —On August 15, of consumption, at the residence of
    Mr. Miller, Glebe-road, Frances Elizabeth Staines aged 21 years."2,1,6
  • The following article appeared in the The Sydney Morning Herald on 16 August 1866. " FUNERAL.—The Friends of Miss FRANCES ELIZABETH STAINES are invited to attend her Funeral; to move from the residence of Mr. Miller, Glebe Road, at 2.45 p.m. THIS DAY. JOHN HILL, Undertaker."7
  • She was buried on 16 August 1866 in Camperdown Cemetery, Sydney. Witnesses to her burial were Richard S Rinner and John James Higley.

    The following inscription on her headstone was copied by Auntie Bess. (Sarah Elizabeth Woods (nee Staines))
