Mary Priddle was mentioned in an article as follows: The Kyogle Examiner 1956. Pioneer Woman Had Full Life:
A nonogenarian who lived during the reign of six British monarchs and was the last surviving member of her own family died recently at the home of her daughter, Mrs. M. Powell, of Geneva. As a girl she bought butter for 4d a pound (choicest) and for 3d a pound (second class). She was Mrs. Mary Auliff, who was born at Broughton Vale, near Berry, on the south coast of N.S.W. on August 26, 1862, and died on July 26, aged 94. Mrs Auliff lived at South Kyogle with her late husband for 11 years until 1926. Daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. George Priddle, Mrs Auliff married when she was 17 the late Thomas Auliff at Wattamolla, where her parents then lived. As a girl of 12, Mrs. Auliff made the family bread and churned the butter. The milk was set in shallow tin dishes 3ft in diameter, and the cream was later skimmed. Her Father was a Waggonette, and the homestead was the meeting place for the settlement. All would move off in a party with the butter on pack horses, carts or waggonette. Provisions for the week would be bought home on the return journey. Fourpence per pound was paid for the choicest butter, and threepence for second class. Until the family moved to Beaumont, Mrs Auliff rode home each week to help her Mother. She was a good horse woman and being always ready to help, she often nursed sick neighbours. At Beaumont where they worked her Father's section, they purchased one of the firdt separators. it was horse operated. As well as clearing the land, her husband also helped to build the road over the Camberwarra Mountains. This is now a well known highway. In 1897, the family moved to the other side of the mountain and there they had a small dairy farm which the women worked while the men cleared the land. In 1907, Mrs. Auliff's husband purchased cattle and bought them by boat to Ballina. Because of the frequency of droughts on the south coast, the family had decided to move to the north coast, where they rented a property owned by her brother, Mr. George Priddle, Tintenbar. In 1915 they purchased a property at South Kyogle and remained there until the death of Mrs. Auliff's husband in 1926. Mrs. Auliff later built a cottage at Evans Head and resided there almost until the time of her death. In later years she spent some time with her daughters, Mrs. I. Parrish, of Avondale Ave, Lismore, and Mrs. M. Powell, of Geneva. Her eldest daughter, Elizabeth, died when she was 19. Her eldest son, Herbert, was killed in action in the first world war. Her other surviving children are Thomas, of Coffs Harbour, Margaret (Mrs. F Carey) of Melbourne, and Marjory (Mrs. M Powell) of Kyogle. Mrs. Auliff is also survived by 18 Grandchildren, and one great-great grandchild. The Rector of Kyogle, the Rev. H.W. Carr, conducted the funeral service in St. James Church of England. Mrs. Auliff was buried in the Anglican portion of Kyogle Cemetry. Pall-bearers at the church were a Son Thomas, a son-in-law, Mr. I. Parrish, and Messrs. G Sladen, A Parrish, T. Harris and M. Powell (grandsons). (See original clippings from the Kyogle Examiner in files also Northern star).1
