Francis Lascelles Jardine

Francis Lascelles (Frank) Jardine (1841 – 1919), together with his younger brother, Alexander William Jardine, in 1864 travelled 1200 miles from Rockhampton, Queensland, Australia to Somerset, Queensland. They started with 42 horses and 250 head of cattle. The trip took 10 months during which time the party was constantly harassed by Aboriginals, as they forced their way through scrub and swamps and crossed at least six large rivers. They reached Somerset on 2 March 1865 with 12 horses and 50 cattle. Both brothers were elected fellows of the Royal Geographical Society and received the Murchison Award. In 1866 Frank settled on a station near Somerset and was appointed police magistrate in 1868.
