Frederick Lord, n.d.

from Pastoral Review, 16 January 1915

The death of Mr. Frederick Lord, late of Eskdale Station, Esk, Queensland, occurred early last month at his residence in Brisbane. He was born in 1841 at Avoca, Tasmania, and when 10 years of age went to England, where he was educated at the Blackheath Proprietary School and King's School, London. On returning to Australia, he first went to Tasmania, then to Sydney, and a few months later to Brisbane, and in 1867 with his father and brothers selected land on the Darling Downs. Six years later the late Mr. Lord went out to the Crow's Nest district and prospected for tin, while in the meantime the family selected land at Eskdale. Eskdale Station and stock were purchased from the late Mr. James Ivory by Mr. Lord, who, in addition, took up North Branch, near Pittsworth, and what is now Lerida; also Culloden and Mahrigong near Muttaburra. Lerida head station is situated on Lord's called after the late Mr. Lord, who came from an old Tasmanian and New South Wales family. In 1807 his grandfather, Simeon Lord, was one of the leading citizens of Sydney who signed the document deposing Governor Bligh. In 1810, when the Governor of Tasmania died, the late Mr. Lord's grand-uncle was appointed Deputy-Governor of that State.

Mr. Lord was elected to the Legislative Assembly, as representative of the Stanley electorate, at the general elections in 1893, 1896, and 1899. He was also a director of the Queensland National Bank and a director of Moreheads Limited. He married a daughter of the late Mr. James Warner, of Brisbane, and Mr. Ernest Lord, of Eskdale Station, and Mr. Stuart Lord, of Rochdale Station and Toowoomba, are his sons. There are also two married daughters.
