"MRS SUSANNAH SHERWOOD, widow of Frank Sherwood, and one of the oldest natives of the colony, passed away peacefully to her rest at the residence of her son, Mr James Sherwood, well known fruitgrower of Seven Hills, on Monday last after an illness of but five days. Born at Toongabbie in 1806, the deceased could well claim to be one of those who saw the dawning of the history of this colony. Her father, Mr Simon Moulds, was one of the pioneers who settled at Toongabbie, and there at the age 18 years the deceased met and married at St. John's Parramatta, Frank Sherwood. The old lady retained her senses up to the last, and when Dr. Phillips was called in and at once said that the end was at hand, she was acquainted with the fact and was quite resigned to the inevitable. Mrs Sherwood had eleven children, nine of whom are living, and she leaves behind her 104 grandchildren and 130 great-grandchildren. The funeral, all the arrangements of which were conducted by Mr Metcalfe, took place on Tuesday and the body of the venerable lady was interred in the Rouse Hill cemetery in the presence of a numerous concourse of friends and relatives. The Rev. Dixon-Hudson read the funeral service at the grave."

Bequest

It would appear from the Will of John Thomas's mother, Susannah, that he may have been a "favourite", because she bequeathed ".... unto my son John Thomas Sherwood all my household furniture and all other goods, chattels and things except ready money summarily in the bank." and also, "...If any money remains after payment of my debts and funeral expenses and the before mentioned legacies I direct my said Trustee to divide the same equally between my other four sons John Thomas Sherwood, Samuel James Sherwood, James Charles Sherwood and William Sherwood share and share alike."
