Ledsam, William Gurd (1836–1904)

Monday's Sydney papers announce the death of Mr. W. G. [William Gurd] Ledsam, formerly connected with the Post and Telegraph Department and stationed at Wagga, Junee, and Goulburn. Mr. Ledsam only left Goulburn a few days ago for the benefit of his health, and his death will come as a shock to many. For a number of years he was a severe sufferer from an internal complaint, but it was not thought that his end was so near. Mr. Ledsam was a popular resident of this city, and although of a quiet disposition he made himself well liked for his kind services in connection with district sick visiting. He was a licensed lay reader of the Church of England, and held office on the committee of the Church Society. The funeral of the deceased gentleman was to take place this (Tuesday) morning at the necropolis. Deceased, who was 68 years of age, leaves a widow and one son.
