Women

Margaret Amelia Aberline was listed on the 1903 electoral roll as a general servant. It is thought she may have worked in one of the large houses in the area that were owned - at the time - by parliamentarians and wealthy businessmen. Alternatively, she may have worked in one of the many guesthouses in the area.

She is thought to have been born in Victoria c1868 to James and Jeanette Aberline. 
       
She was a woman of her time, making history by being among the first women to obtain the right to vote in NSW in 1903.  It would seem that she moved back to Victoria c1909 and died there in 1946.
