    This is part of a larger article (Williams nic name is Pretty Billy).... MATCH OF FIFTY POUNDS ASIDE, BETWEEN MR.DOWNES' b.g HAPHAZARD AND MR.PATRICKS b.g MOUSTACHE..../ The horses were upon the ground long before the time agreed upon; but some little delay occurred which prevented them from being started at the precise time. Mr.Patrick rode Moustache, and Haphazard was entrusted to the piloting of Gamble, more familiarly termed "Pretty Billy." As the prads drew up to the post, someone in the stand gave the word "off," and away both went neck and neck to the corner. Mr. Brasnell in vain endeavouring to get them back. Shortly after rounding the turn Moustache gradually drew away from his competitor, although taking it easy. Before coming to the hill Haphazard tried to collar him, but without effect, Moustache darting away like an arrow. On entering the straight running, he was several lengths ahead, notwithstanding the strong exertions of Gamble, who plied the whalebone and bleeders most assiduously to his nag. Moustache gradually increased his distance, and when he passed the winning chair, Haphazard pulled up at the distance post, and cantered gently in. Immediately on Mr. Patrick being ordered to dismount, Mr.Downes objected to him being weighed, on thc ground that Mr. Brasnell had not fulfilled the terms of the agreement, by starting the horses. This gentleman admitted the fact, but at the same time, said, that as the horses went away so well together, he had determined on declaring it a start, and proceeded to weigh Mr. Patrick. After a long discussion, Mr. Brasnell reversed his previous decision ; the heat was determined to be a nullity, and the horses were rung to saddle to begin the race. Mr. Downes then declared all the bets off...../

    In Memoriam 11 Aug 1888  [41
    PROMOTION. Faithful to Death. From Parramatta to Glory. During the past week, God has seen fit to call one of our dear comrades home, Brother Gambrell, who had served the devil the best part of his life, but who, four years ago, came to Jesus and obtained pardon for all his sins, and afterwards joined the ranks of the Salvation Army to fight for God. For some two years past Brother Gambrell's health has been failing, and last January God saw fit to lay him on a bed of sickness, which has proved a blessing to many precious souls. Several weeks before his death, I, with others, visited him, and, thank God, every time we would enter his room his only conversation wished to be about heavenly things. On one occasion, while suffering great pain, "Jesus suffered for me, and I am willing to bear this for him. I'll soon be at home from all pain and sorrow." I said, "Dad, you will soon be home; is there any darknes in the valley?" He said, "Oh, no; it is all light; Jesus is always with me ; I fancy I can hear him saying, 'Come up higher.' Oh, I am so happy ; I've not got the slightest doubt; all is well with my soul. Good-bye; we will meet around the great white throne." On Thursday, July 26th, looking up, he said, "All's bright; all's bright; Jesus calls me; I'm going, I'm going," and with the words on his lips, his spirit passed away. On Saturday morning we met at our late comrade's house, to follow his remains to their last resting place. As we assembled around the grave and sang Above the waves of earthly strife, and as one or two spoke of our brother's death, and urged all present to meet him in heaven, great power was felt, and we there promised, by God's help to meet dad in heaven. On Friday night we held a memorial service, when the hall was filled with people anxious to hear more about dad's death, and as those who were by his bedside, when his soul passed away told of the bright testimony he left behind, and urged all present to prepare for death, tears were seen on many faces, and era the close six precious souls wept their way to Calvary, May God bless our brother's testimony, by using it in His hand to the winning of many precious souls, in the prayer of Miss Walker, for Capt G. Walker.

Anne Spencer nee constantine (Marlow Bucks Uk, UK) says...
If you look on Ancestry, the Constantine Philpott lastest 1, you can see that I think we are distantly related My Grandparent frfed and Violet constantine were cousing and their mothers were Gambrill sister - I can go back to George.!
I now have 2 daughters who are in Sydney!!!

Hi Anne,

I can't view your tree on ancestry as I need membership. Great that we have a connection, I would be interested in knowing your lineage to George. Are your children living here now? You can catch me on gedmatch.com if you have tested for DNA. T909876 bobbysushi@gmail.com
