    Notes 
    • From Field Family Newsletter 30:

      In the Forbes ``Lachlan Valley Gold´´ newsletter put out by the Forbes Family History Group there was an article about some of our ancestors. Here are some extracts from it.

      Early Midwives of Forbes and Other Private Hospitals

      One of the first midwives in this area would have been Mary Ann Strickland, nee Higgins, as she married Josiah Strickland at the age of 16 years in 1840 and resided at Bundaburra Station. As the nearest doctor at this time was 90 miles away, Mary Ann became an unofficial doctor and midwife for the Bundaburra area.

      Mrs. Mary Muir, fondly called ``granny´´ came from Scotland. From here and her husband´s home, ``Muirdale´´ in Bathurst Street, many aboriginal women delivered their babes with Mary´s help. Mary herself gave birth to her 3rd child in Forbes in 1862. A park, named in her honour, is in Barwon Street..

      One of Forbes´ best known midwives was affectionately known as `Gran´ Morris. her real name was Ada Charlotte Morris, nee Field. During the 1890´s and into the 1930´s, a sulky drawn by a horse called Bess with Gran Morris on board was a common sight, night or day, around Forbes. Her house in Queen Street often accommodated women who were close to delivering their baby.

      (The name Ganey in the next sentence is wrong it should be Jane, she married William Peasley their daughter Jessie married Orton Field)

      Ganey Peasley, nee Gander, is known to have practiced midwifery until 1922 at Bedgerabong, after having arrived in this area with her husband in 1878. Jane and William settled at Pine Farm with their seven children and she is reputed to have delivered about 150 babies.
