Bugg, Mary Ann (1834–1905)

This entry is from Obituaries Australia

On Saturday, 23rd Instant, there passed away at her residence, in Gladstone-street, a very old Mudgee identity in the person of Mary Ann Burrows, at the advanced age of 76 years, after being invalided for eight weeks. The deceased was a native of Bay of Islands (N.Z.), and came to Port Stephens (N.S.W.) with her parents, then afterwards to Bathurst district in 1851, and subsequently came to Mudgee. She was at the opening of the Turon diggings, and saw the first gold got there. She is survived by 13 children, seven daughters and six sons, all of whom are married, with the exception of Fred and Arthur. Deceased had been in a declining state of health for the past 12 months, and recently she was attended by Dr. Cook. The funeral took place on Monday last, and the remains were interred in the Church of England portion of the general cemetery, Mr. H. A. Pocklington officiating at the grave, in the absence of the clergymen. We extend our sympathy to the bereaved relatives.
