By order of Committee of Management,
William Dempster.
     He may have been the Mr Dempster, Defence Forces Gunner, Victorian Volunteer Artillery Regiment, who was a volunteer to quell the convict uprising when Inspector General of Prisons John Price was murdered.
     He applied for the posiiton of Town Clerk of Williamstown in May 1857 but did not succeed. William was a bank manager for the ES&A Bank from November 1857, in Williamstown, Victoria. In February 1861 he was first placed in charge 'temporarily' at the Williamstown office of the Bank and took up residence in the quarters supplied by the Bank in that location. His salary at that stage was recorded as £300 p.a. "with house, fuel and £50 p.a. for servant". In April 1873 his basic salary was £400 p.a. It appears that he remained in that post (on a permanent basis) until Feb 1897, when as seen in a photostat copy of letter, it was recommended to the Bank's Board in London that after 40 years in the Bank and at the age of 67, he be retired on a pension of £150 p.a. after a period (indefinite) of leave on full pay. The reference to a reduction in salary in the letter is, in part, also related to the fact that in 1893, during the "financial crisis" of that year, the E S & A Chartered Bank after closing its doors for several months, was reconstituted under the name of E S & A Ltd.
     Letter dated 16 Feb 1897 from E S & A Bank to London Board: I have now to make some arrangements for the retirement of Mr William Dempster who for many years has been our manager at Williamstown but whose age & health make it impossible for him to continue his duties. He is 67 years of age, has been in the service of the Bank for 40 years, and has always been one of our must successful and valued branch managers. Of late years the business at Williamstown has considerably decreased owing to he removal of the greater part of the shipping trade to Port Melbourne and two years ago upon a general revision of salaries Mr Dempster was reduced from £400 to £300 to make it proportional to his decreased responsibilities. I propose, with the directors sanction for which I now ask, to allow him leave of absence for a time on full pay & then give him a pension of £150 a year.
According to a letter from the Town Hall, Williamstown in 1961, in 1860 he succeeded F A Stratford as manager of the Williamstown branch of the English Scottish & Australian Chartered Bank which was then in Thompson Street and later moved to 139 Nelson Place. He was a close friend of the Rev. George Wilkinson and acted as Clerk of Works when the present Holy Trinity Church was built. On his arrival in 1851 he accepted an appointment as counter assistant and clerk in the ship-chandlery of Probert & Verdon at Port Melbourne. It was George F Verdon who secured his appointment to the Williamstown Bank after William had assisted him in a political campaign. He resigned from the bank in 1897 due to ill-health. He was prominent in local affairs - municipal, industrial & charitable.
     The E S & A Chartered Bank was the first banking concern to open a branch at Williamstown in 1854 as their second branch outside Melbourne. According to the City of Williamstown Conservation study the former E S & A Bank at 139 Nelson Place, Williamstown was constructed in 1873 under architect Leonard Perry. It was of brick and contained 10 rooms and was increased to 14 rooms in 1893. Terry was also working on the Anglican church at that time. The branch was sold in 1943 and subsequently used as a seamen's mission after renovations and then became a Navy Club.
     William Dempster married Margaret Herbert Davies, daughter of Rev Thomas Davies and Mary Reddish, on 1 May 1861 in Holy Trinity Church of England, Williamstown, Victoria, Australia. William Dempster was listed in a directory dated 1868 as a bank manager at Thompson Street, Williamstown, Victoria.
     The Williamstown Chronicle on 10 Ict 1874 reported: PRESENTATION TO MR DEMPSTER.- The happy consummation to the wishes and efforts of the parishioners of the Church of England in Williamstown, as seen in the handsome church now ornamenting the town, is very greatly due to the unflagging energy of Mr. W . Dempster, formerly church
warden and now guardian, and we are glad to see that the members have recognised the good services rendered the church by that gentleman. On Thursday evening a very chaste epergne, procured for the purpose by a few of the leading churchmen, was presented to Mr. Dempster by the rev. incumbent, who fully expressed the feelings of the donors in the merited compliment he paid the recipient for the strong interest he had taken in the welfare of the

My dear Dora
A few last words before you finally start. Your telegram confirmed ... impressions of your ... to Adelaide. It is nice to have such a good beginning to a voyage enabling you to ... and to know people before they disappear from the scene for a time longer or shorter as the case may be.
Your going has left a great hole which it does not seem possible to fill but appearances are well maintained but there are ton hearts beneath them.
I must now introduce you to my people. Rob is a round ball of a fellow who had had to give up tennis on account of the rotundity. He is a straight out sort of fellow. Very ... and the enemy of humbug & a firm believer in his wife who I fancy you will like. Katie and Annie two daughters are with them. The former being a good little mother to two grandchildren, double orphans. Rose the mother died just after they left India and Frank Hebbert not long after her. Mary and her husband Capt. Dawson are home from India for a year or two. The latter a son of General Dawson, late of India, and now retired in England. And there you have them all except for offshoots. Robert's address is Glenthorn Rd, Guildford, about 20 miles from London. I am sending your portraits on so that they may know what they have to expect.
The carrier has just brought the cargo of logs and there is to be a grand ...
Tell Maimee that Clara Kelly is to have her boat and I expect she will cherish it jealously
One more goodbye, God bless & keep you all
Your loving father
