Ludlow Archer (1859–1916)

At an early hour yesterday morning (says our Longford correspondent) there passed away a well-known resident of our town in the person of Mr. Ludlow Archer, of "Northbury," after a lingering illness of many months. The late Mr. Archer was the youngest son of the late Mr. Edward Archer. He received his education at Horton College, Ross, and on leaving school followed the profession of a surveyor and engineer. Although not taking an active interest in public affairs he was a member of the road trust for some years, and a justice of the peace for a considerable period. He was a captain in the defence force for several years, and was in command of the Esk Rifle Company, 2nd Battalion, Tasmanian Infantry. He also had a seat on the water trust for some time. He leaves a widow and two sons, for whom the deepest sympathy is felt. His youngest son passed away last Christmas Day.
