The lone but not alone grave of Elizabeth ANSET Maldon, Victoria
I know this lone grave has been photographed before,but I decided to do this one for Family Tree circles. On my visit to Maldon, Victoria, last week I went to see the lone grave of Elizabeth ANSET and her infant son. The grave in on the nature strip of a lane off Chaple Street in Maldon. I had a talk with Neil who lives in the house beside the grave. Neil has spent the last 30 years tending this grave and before him many others looked after it.
Elizabeth the wife of William ANSET 1824-1902 was born Elizabeth BURTON in Brixton, Surrey, England in 1827 she died in childbirth on the 19 July 1854 and her infant son 14 days later.
There were other children, The ones I know of are Elizabeth Hannah 1850-1921 and William 1851-1852 and Neil tells me the decendants of Elizabeth Hannah have visited on occassion. These decendants added the extra 'T' to ANSET
William Anset was the son of John ANSET 1803-1861 and Sarah WOODALL 1799-1852. William died in Castlemaine, Victoria October 1902
He and wife Elizabeth had been living in Lambeth, Surrey with his parents, until arrival in Victoria.
