  • Notes 
    • There is some doubt over Maria Flavell (nee Phillips) date of birth. According to her obituary, Maria was born on 28 May 1808. The 1841 and 1851 censuses gives her age as 23 and 33 which means she would have been born in 1818. The shipping record has her as 39 which puts her birth date as 1816. The Landbeach parish records show that a Mary (and Robert) Phillips were baptised there on 4 December 1808 - which accords with the obituary’s account - and that a Maria Phillips was baptised there on 16 June 1816 which supports the latter dates. I am assuming that the last date is the most likely one.

      Maria grew up in Landbeach in Cambridgeshire and married William Flavell there on 7 August 1836. She and William and six of their children emigrated to the colony of Victoria on the THAMES in 1855. For details of her life in Australia see the entries for William Flavell.

      Maria Flavell (nee Phillips) died at Watchem in Victoria on 20 November 1907 and was buried there the next day. Her death certificate states that she was a ‘widower and old-age pensioner’, that she was 99 years old, and that she died of influenza and heart failure. The informant was Maria’s great grandson Francis Gilchrist who stated that: 1) Maria’s parents were Simon Phillips, a husbandsman, and Maria Miller; 2) she had been born in Cambridgeshire and been in the colony of Victoria about 57 years; 3) she was married in England at the age of 21 years to a James Flavell; and 4) issue were James (70 years), Harriet (deceased), Eliza (65), Phoebe (63), Martha (deceased), Billie (61), John (59), Benjamin (57) and George (53).

      The following obituary appeared in the Donald Times on Friday 29 November 1907:

      ‘Another old colonist in the person of Mrs Flavell passed away at Watchem on Wednesday evening of last week, at the ripe age of 99 years and six months. She enjoyed remarkable health throughout her long life until the 11th of the present month when she had to take to her bed through an attack of influenza which turned to pneumonia. Dr Calhoun was called in, but from the first could not hold out any hope of her recovery. She gradually sank and passed peacefully away at about 7 o’clock on Wednesday evening. The funeral took place at Watchem on Thursday afternoon, when her remains were followed to their last resting place by a large number of old friends and relations., the Rev G. Brodie (Presbyterian) of Birchip officiating at the home and the graveside.

      ‘Deceased was born at Cambridge (England) on 28 May 1808, her maiden name being Maria Phillips. At the age of 28 she was married to Mr Wm Flavell. In 1855 they emigrated to Australia in the vessel known as the ‘Thames’. Her husband and she landed at Geelong where Mr Flavell engaged in pastural pursuits on Mr Swanston’s station at Inverleigh. In 1861 her husband died, leaving her with seven children. She remained in Inverleigh until 1879 and then went to Wickliffe, where she lived with one of her sons until 1897. The remaining ten years of her life were spent with her daughter, Mrs [Eliza] Bruce, at Watchem. Her family consisted of 14 children, seven of whom survive her, and her descendents are: 43 grandchildren, 68 great grandchildren, and 36 great great grandchildren.’
