Lord, David (1841–1885)

The remains of the late Mr J. C. Lord reached here late yesterday evening, having been brought over the ranges from his late residence, the “ Springs Estate," near Swansea, a distance of some miles in a light cart. The coffin was taken to the railway station here and placed in a truck and was taken to Hobart by mail train, in charge his brother Mr J. C. Lord. Mr David Lord was son of the late Hon. Jas. Lord (the once well-known father of Campell Town) and was quite a young man and one who will be greatly missed, for a more kind hearted and obliging neighbour there never was, bring always ready and willing to assist all persons in the hour of need. Mr Lord was a gentleman well known throughout Tasmania, and more particularly in sporting circles, as he was a most excellent judge of horses, and a good steeplechase rider, and one of the beat slips in the colony. Mr Lord leaves a wife but no family; it is sad to young gentleman cut down in the bloom of manhood.
