Matthew James Everingham (II), who was born at Parramatta on May 10, 1795, accompanied his parents to the Hawkesbury where he took part in all the farming activities of his people on a 50 acre land grant; known as 'Everingham's Farm,' at Sackville. He married Miss Anne Chaseling, one of the many daughters of Mr. Thomas Chaseling (I). Matthew James Eyeringham (II) was just under 22 years of age when he was married on February 17, 1817.
During all the years preceding his death (he) stayed with some remaining sons and daughters at his splendid orchard-farm, at 'Knight's Retreat,' Sackville, which was one of the show places of the Hawkesbury for the cultivation of high-lass fruits of all kinds, a reputation it holds to the present day. Much of the property is now devoted to citrus cultivation.
After, the death of his 1st wife Mrs. Anne Everingham (nee Chaseling), at the age of 60 years, on May 27, 1863, the second Matthew J. Everingham married a widow named Mrs. Isobella Cotton, who died at the age of 63 years at the residence of her son, Mr. Charles Bowen, at South Colah, on December 22, 1867. There was no descent from the widower Everingham and widow's second marriage.
Matthew James Everingham (II) died at 'Knight's Retreat Farm,' Sackville on November 22, 1884, at the great age of 89 years, and with his unmarried brother, John Everingham (I), his wife, and many other members of the Everingham family, is buried in the family vault on the farm, ground for which was specially reserved according to his will. It is also said that one of his sisters, Ann Everingham, and her husband, Mr. John Chaseling (I), are interred in the vault at 'Knight's Retreat Farm.
