  • Notes 


    • According to a letter from Selina Sarah Martin to her niece Elsie Martin, Diane and her sister Kitty were both very beautiful women.

      Diana's death notice in the Londonderry Journal read:
      'DIED
      On the 16th inst., in this city, Diana, wife of Robert Martin, Esq., A gent of the Sunday School Society for England, in this and adjacent counties, and second daughter of the late Samuel Sealy, Esq., of Dingle. She had been restored, in a great measure, from a severe indisposition, but a sudden and violent return of the complaint terminated her mortal existence in less than one hour. She was a most affectionate wife and mother, and has left a husband and eight children to deplore her removal. She lived in constant dependence on the Divine Redeemer - to her, therefore, to die was gain.'

      Of the 8 children noted in her burial notice, only 5 have been identified.

      She was buried at Londonderry Cathedral on account of her husband's position as Agent of the Sunday School Society of Ireland, the main provider of primary education in Ireland in the early 18th century.
