Arthur Gardiner (?–1860)

from Maitland Mercury

The last mail from England has brought intelligence of the death of Arthur Gardiner, esquire. The deceased gentleman was a son of the late Captain Gardiner, and for many years filled the office of Clerk to the Caveat Board, and Registrar of the Court of Requests in Hobart Town. He was esteemed by a large circle of friends, and his urbane and gentlemanly manners in the discharge of his official duties won the respect of a large portion of the public. Mr. Gardiner had obtained leave of absence, and was proceeding to England in the Lincolnshire, when he was washed overboard and drowned.
