Born at Cranford, St. Andrew's, North
Hamptonshire, on 7th January, 1843, Mary

at the age of 11 years, with her father,
sister, and brothers. The family first
settled in the district now known as
Hendra. shortly afterwards. removing to
Bald Hills. Miss Buckly in 1861, when
17 years of age, was married to Mr.
Jonathan Carseldine by the Rev. John
Moseley, in old St. John's pro-Cathedral.
For many years Mr. and Mrs. Carseldine
lived in the Caboolture district, where
they were engaged in the dairying industry.
At the time of the Gympie gold
rush in 1868. Mrs. Carseldine
had many interesting experiences,
which resulted from their residence
being situated on the old main
road between Brisbane and Gympie.
Although not a nurse by profession, the
common sense and practical, kindliness of
Mrs. Carseldine made her services in much
demand in a district in which medical
attendance was difficult to obtain, and in
addition to the numerous duties of bringing
up a large family the deceased lady
was noted far and wide for her hospitality.
Of a deeply religious disposition,
she won the affection and esteem of all
with whom she came in contact. The last
16 years of her life were spent at Northgate
Junction, and in spite of the loss of
her sight some years ago she maintained
her cheerfulness and courage. Up to
within six weeks of her death, which
occurred towards the end of last month, she
retained her intellectual faculties. The
late Mrs. Carseldine was the mother of
14 children, two of whom died in
infancy. Her descendants include
over 80 grandchildren and 30
great-grandchildren. Her five daughters
are Mesdames G. A. Atthow
(Clayfield) W. Bleakley (Wilston),
A. T. Unwin (Woodford), T. McCoskar
(Peachester). and J. Williamson (Moore),
and her seven sons are Messrs: Charles
(Kilcoy). David John (Linville), Eli James
(New Zealand), Francis (Darra), Herbert
(Woodford), Julian (Caboolture), and
Noel (Cairns). ,Four of the sons, like
their father, are justices of the Peace, and
all except the youngest, are on the
land. During the past six months the
late Mrs. Carseldine was visited by every
member of her family, except one son, who
resides in North Queensland, and was un
able to make the journey. One son came
from New Zealand to visit his parents.
The funeral took place at the Lutwyche
cemetery, the Rev. W. Powell, a very old
friend of the family, officiating at the grave.
