Notes for John POLLARD
Esther Eddy Pollard was born 6 April 1856, St Just, Cornwall, parents, John Pollard (born 21 October 1827, Madron, Cornwall, died 6 March 1890, Drouin West) and Elizabeth Williams (born Cornwall, died 13 July 1891, Creswick). John and Elizabeth Pollard and their 11 children (including Esther Eddy) arrived in Melbourne, 12 September 1868, on the SS Great Britain. Another child was born later in Creswick in 1871.2

John's parents, John Pollard and Esther Eddy Grenfell, had already come to Victoria in 1855 on the ship Caldera with four of their children. John Pollard (senior) was born in 1802, Madron, Cornwall and Esther was born 1804, St Just in Penwith, Cornwall. They appear to have lived in Madron until around 1835 when they are recorded as living in St Just. In 1841 and 1842 they were in Cararack and in 1845, back at St Just. Note: John Deason (born 1829) was living in Cararack in 1841 and was of similar age to John and Esther's oldest sons - John born 1827 and William born 1831. (See Family History Sheet for John Deason born 1829 for more information).2
