3-Elizabeth Ellen Appleby was born on 22 May 1869 in Westbury, Tasmania, died on 8 Aug 1928 in Mole Creek at age 59, and was buried in Mole Creek.
Elizabeth married Edwin Ashdown, son of Henry William Ashdown and Sarah Ann Pickett, on 31 Dec 1888 in Eleanor & William's home in Exton, Tasmania. Edwin was born on 30 Aug 1865 in Deloraine, Tasmania, died on 14 May 1901 in Chudleigh, Tasmania at age 35, and was buried in May 1901 in Mole Creek Public Cemetery.
They had five children:
- Bernice Lucy Alma
- Bernice Melva Beatrice
- William Henry Cyril
- Herley Millicent Avis and
- Corrie Edwina Elizabeth.
Elizabeth next married her brother-in-law Walter Richard Pickett, son of convict ↑Daniel Pickett and Mary Howe, on 20 Jan 1904 in St John's Church of England, Launceston. Walter was born on 24 May 1859 in Deloraine, Tasmania and died on 9 Nov 1928 in Latrobe Hospital at age 69.
They had three children:
- Greta Mary
- Alison Elizabeth and
- Crissie Ada Amelia.
Elizabeth attended school at Exton and moved with the family to Chudleigh and Mole Creek. It would have been at this time that Elizabeth met Edwin Ashdown the son of John Ashdown who owned and operated a lime kiln and farm at Chudleigh. Elizabeth and Edwin were married by Rev. Edward Couper Tennant, a Presbyterian minister, at Elizabeth's parents' home at Exton on 31 December 31, 1888.
Edwin and Elizabeth spent their first years of married life living with Edwin's parents in the old family homestead on the farm at Chudleigh. They had five children, one boy and four girls. Unfortunately Elizabeth was left with a young family to bring up on her own, as Edwin died when only 36 years old. In those days rabbits were in plague proportions and had to be poisoned. Edwin always used to mix all the phosphorus poison and didn't take the precautions of preventing the inhalation of the fumes as he had been advised to do. He died with lung cancer.
Some time later Elizabeth married Walter Richard Pickett, son of Daniel Pickett and Mary How. Walter was another resident of Chudleigh, also a farmer, but a man of many talents. He worked with his father who owned the Chudleigh Hotel. His father, Daniel Pickett was convicted on 13th July 1832, about 18yrs of age, in Berkshire England for house breaking. He was transported to Hobart for 13 years. Before his arrival he spent some time on a prison hulk at sea. Daniel received his ticket of leave in March 1841.
They had traction engines, chaff cutters, threshing machines and horses, draught, hack and ponies. As the railway line ran only to Chudleigh and was not completed to Mole Creek, they took tourists by horse and trap to the Mole Creek Caves. Elizabeth, with the help of her elder daughters, looked after the hotel, cooking, cleaning etc. Elizabeth had three daughters in her second marriage.
When the 1914-18 war ended, the barman, realising that the beer supply was running out, diluted it with water, to try to prevent the riot which could have erupted should the supply have ceased. Walter at one time lost some fingers in a chaff cutter, and also blew a thumb off his other hand with a gun when out shooting.
On retirement Elizabeth and Walter lived at Mole Creek. Elizabeth died in August of 1928 and Walter in November of the same year.
