A lonely burial. — 6 Comments

  1. Two hundred and thirty years have passed since this initial event and yet I feel such sad emotions as if it was yesterday!

  2. Thanks, Gayle & Albert, a sad event in my family’s life, joining even greater tragedy for some of the other families arriving in Sydney Cove at the same time.

  3. Thank goodness I didn’t live in those days…I would have been devastated by the loss of so many babies. I enjoyed your story very much and particularly the opening paragraphs Janice.

    • Thanks Bev, I am glad you enjoyed the story. Fortunately for this Ezzy family, Louisa was the only childhood death in a family of eight children.

  4. When I am in that area or catching a train from Town Hall Station I will think of your family and the souls buried there. I loved your story and thank you for another interesting history lesson.
