Lancelot Edward Threlkeld (1827–1882)

The sudden death of Mr. Lancelot E. Threlkeld took place at the residence of Mr. B. S. Lloyd, Sydney House, Belmont Park, Lee, on November 24. Prior to his death Mr. Threlkeld visited the English and Scotch lakes, and about the middle of October was recommended by his medical attendant to go to Bournemouth to escape the London fogs. Having derived considerable benefit from his stay, and being anxious to witness the review of the troops from Egypt by her Majesty, and attend the opening wool sales, he decided upon visiting London; and after being present at both these events he was on the point of returning to Bournemouth, when he was taken suddenly ill with severe spasms of the heart, from which, after intense suffering, he passed calmly away. The funeral took place at Norwood Cemetery on November 30, and was largely attended, in addition to the members of the family of Mr. B. S. Lloyd, by many colonists now in London, amongst whom were the Rev. Joseph Beazley, late of Sydney, Sir Saul Samuel, Mr. James R. Fairfax, Mr. Frederick Lassetter, Mr. H. H. Beauchamp, Mr. Edward L. Jones (of Messrs. D. Jones and Co.), and Mr. James R. Lawson.
