Cause of her death was Decay of nature.
Louise had been married to a Mr Payne before she married George, but she took her maiden name when she married George (It is possible that Louise's maiden name was "WELLS" as her first husband was Nicholas Wratten), (information supplied by Val Allen). George and Louise arrived in Sydney 1838 on the Orient with Mary Ann, Ellen, George and Catherine, (Georges children from first marriage plus Louisa's children, Denise and Ann from her first marriage), Their child Orienta Susanna was an infant born in the Bay of Biscay on the way out to Australia.

• Medical. Cause of Death: Decay of Nature
• Resided. William Good notes:
She was living at West Hythe in 1829 and 1834 when her daughters Ann Payne and Dennis Browning were born (both baptised at Burmarsh in Kent).
In the shipping papers Louisa gave her mother's name as Mary Hammond, however, her mother's name was Mary Skewers. I have now discovered that a woman named Ann Skewers (spelled Squer) married Robert Hammond at Canterbury 12 August 1786. Their daughter was Dennis Hammond (1787-1830) who married Louisa's 1st cousin, John Wratten (1786-1865). I think it highly likely that Ann Skewers was the mother of Mary Skewers and that, consequently, Mary Skewers was more commonly known by her stepfather's name, i.e. known as Mary Hammond.
I have also found that in 1824 Mary Wratten, widow, married Samuel Wells at Tenterden. This would explain why Louisa's mother is sometimes called Mrs Wells.
