Note:

Lynne Jackson has written:

"Barbara Annie Somerville died following birth of Victoria Summerville Longworth. Vic was my great aunt. Her story was that her father John Longworth was attending the funeral of Barbara Annie's sister Victoria Armstrong Somerville, when he got news of barbara Annie's grave health. He apparently rode a series of horses from the Bight to the family home at Concord, Laurieton to be by her side. I don't know if he made it. However he never remarried. The three girls were brought up by him and their housekeeper "Lizzie" Froud."
