The late Mr. Frank Gallard (to whose demise we referred last issue) was an excellent citizen and a pillar of the Wesleyan Church, assiduously practicing what he preached and leading a life worthy of emulation. He was for nine years an alderman of the Ryde Council — seven years consecutively and two years after an interval. During his seven years of civic service he put up a record from an attendance point of view, having missed only one meeting of the council, on which memorable occasion he was locked up for the night on a jury. The late Mr. Gallard was born on the 25th February, 1833, in Kent, England, and came out to this country with his parents when only a few summers had passed over his head. To be exact, he embarked from Gravesend in the James Paterson, a sailing vessel of some 400 tons burden, on the 11th. August, 1838, landing in Sydney Harbour on the 11th December of that year. He resided with his parents at Lane Cove, Castle Hill, Hornsby and Epping. It was at the lastnamed place that his father died when he was 16 years of age and soon afterwards he started his life's career. He learned the carpentering trade, but before settling down had a turn at the goldfields in both New South Wales and Victoria. On the 14th January, 1863, he married Susannah Martha, youngest daughter of the late Mr. William Small. He had been fruitgrowing in Marsfield for upwards of half a century.
