Mr. William Pritchard, who died on November 18, was an old and-highly respected colonist. Mr. Pritchard, who was in his eighty-seventh year, was a well-known identity in Hindmarsh, having resided in Orsmond street for over 6O years. He was born at Bogpath, Gloucestershire, on June 7, 1818, and arrivedinSouth Australiain the ship Lady Emma on December 4, 1837. Nearly 12 months later he was married at Trinitv Church, North terrace, to Miss Jane Croft. He was by trade a mason, and many old residences of Adelaide and Hindmarsh testify to his good work. With another builder he was contractor for the building of Ridley's (later Magarey s) mill in Torrens street, Hindmarsh, for which he was paid at the rate of 2/6 per day of 10 hours. Mr. Pritchard built the first stone house inHindmarsh—in Richard street—which still remains; also the first in Bowden. With the late Mr. Dench he inaugurated Sunday school work in connection with the Church of England in Hindmarsh, and the first school and the church services were conducted in old -brick premises situated on the Port road. Mr. Pritchard was one of the original syndicate that was formed to purchase the section of land on which the town of Hindmarsh is built, and the deeds are still in the possession of the family. The land was owned by Governor Hindmarsh, and it was after him that the town was named. After purchasing, the syndicate engaged a surveyor to lay out the town. This was done, and the owners did not neglect the sporting population, for Lindsay Circus—the now up-to-date recreation ground—was laid out in the centre of the district. The ground which is now the Hindmarsh Cemetery was originally intended by the owners as a market, but their intention was never earned out. Except for a few years, Mr. Pritchard had resided the, whole or the time since his arrival in the State, in a house which he built in Orsmond street. When first married he lived with his wife in an old wood and mud house thatched with reeds at the back of Government House, but in1840 he settled in Hindmarsh. A few months later he rented a farm at the Reedbeds, owned by Mr. W. H. Gray. Later be took up farming near Strathalbyn and was fairly successful. At the time of the gold rush to Victoria he met with fair success. Mrs. Pritchard died about 11 years ago, but Mr. Pritchard has left five sons—Mr. George Pritchard of Hindmarsh; Mr. William Pritchard, of Port Adelaide; Mr. Thomas Pritchard, of Plympton; Mr. John Edward Pritchard, of Kalgoorlie; Mr. Fred Pritchard, of Hindmarsh; and two daughters—Mrs. J. Errington, of Hindmarsh; and Mrs. A. G. Tales, G Hales of England: 81 grandchildren and 50 great grandchildren.
