  • Notes 


    • This biography is a compilation of facts derived from various sources.  It is basically a chronology of events, as little is known of the Sarah.
       
       
      Sarah Wilkinson was probably born about 1838. The date is estimated as being 4 years after the birth of her husband John Edward Jacombs.
       
      Her date of arrival in New Zealand, or whether she was born in New Zealand, is not known.  Possible arrivals are on the ship Egmont in 1856 (to Canterbury), and on the ship Matoaka in 1863.
       
      Sarah married John Edward Jacombs on 17 Apr 1867 at St Michaels Church in Christchurch.
       
      On 30 Mar 1869, Mrs Jacombs advertised for a general servant for a small family.  The notice stated that good character in the servant was indispensable.
       
      But the marriage was short-lived.  Late in 1869, John Edward and Sarah had a daughter, Enid Wilkinson Jacombs, but both mother and child died soon after the birth.
       
      Sarah died in Christchurch in Nov 1869 at the age of 31.  The funeral left Tuam Street at 4pm on Tuesday 23rd November.
