About Lady Anne Osborne-Gibbes
"OSBORNE-GIBBES, Lady Whose death occurred on Sunday at her residence, Eldon Rd, Mt Eden, was the relict of the late Sir Samuel Osborne-Gibbes, Bart., who died at Whangarei about 30 years ago and mother of Sir Edward Osborne-Gibbes, late Secretary for Education, the present holder of the title. Lady Osborne-Gibbes, who was over 90 years of age, arrived in NZ with her husband at an early stage of the colony’s history and from the outset made her home in the Auckland provincial district. She was a woman of strong individuality and had a large circle of friends, among the old identities of the Dominion. Her family, besides Sir Edward, consists of Mr Phillip Osborne-Gibbes, now at the Gilbert Islands, and four daughters, all resident in NZ. [AWN 19.09.1918]"
