  • Death certificate transcript
  • William was mentioned as a pupil of Coonabarabran Public School in an article in the Maitland Mercury & Hunter River Advertiser of Thurs, 29 June, 1871.

Parkes, Monday

William Oxley, a labourer, was found in a semi-conscious condition in a paddock some four miles from town on Friday He was engaged getting fire wood, when he was struck on the head by a limb of a tree. He was taken to the Parkes Hospital, and is in a critical condition.



The death occurred on Monday evening last, somewhat suddenly, at the residence of Mr. J. McClintock, on the Eugowra road, of William Iden Oxley, aged 66 years.

The late Mr. Oxley was well known around this district, he having worked for some years hereabouts as a travelling saddler and harness maker. It was his custom to travel from farm to farm with a van, and in the course of his peregrinations he was last Monday at Mr. McClintock's place on the Eugowra road. During the day he complained of feeling not quite well, and after tea Mr. McClintock, at his request, prepared a mustard poultice for his chest. This gave some relief, and deceased left his van and was made comfortable in the house of his employer. He was, however, quickly worse and died in a few minutes.
