Later Years of the Young Qualtroughs from the book "A Quota of Qualtrough" Pages 48-70

Anne Qualtrough (1849-1908) 
- Quiet and Kindly Lady

LEAST of all is known about ANNE the third daughter. She remained single and following the death of her parents, when she would have been about 32, she moved into the city to be with her sister Emily, a professional nurse.

They shared a small house in Cobden Street, Newton, then a residential part of Auckland, along Karangahape Road West. Nieces recall that "Aunt Annie" was similar in looks and disposition to the younger, lovable Emily and was very kind to them when they came from the country to visit their aunts.

Emily and Annie didn't have much to come and go on but Annie would set the table beautifully for afternoon tea, even if it were only a simple one of bread and butter, recalled one niece, the late Mrs. Elsie Smith, who was Tom Qualtrough's second daughter. The kind-hearted Annie would sprinkle sugar on the children's bread and butter to make it more palatable to young tastebuds.

Annie had a skin problem of some sort and never went out in public without wearing a hat fitted with a short veil. Perhaps self-consciousness heightened a natural reserve, and possibly she was not robust for she died in 1908 at the early age of 59. She too, is interred at Pakuranga in the family plot.
