Tuesday 5 December 1826

The following account of the funeral of the late Serjeant James BRODRICK is furnished by a Correspondent who regrets that he is not in possession of sufficient information to do justice to the very great and justly merited esteem in which the late Serjant James BRODRICK was held by every one who knew him: it was impossible that any individual of his rank in life could be more respected.
Serjeant BRODRICK was born in Sydney in New South Wales in 1791 or 2. He enlisted in the late 102nd Regiment, with which he served in that Colony, the West Indies and North America: on that regiment being disbanded in 1818 he volunteered his services to the 49th Regiment, from which he has not been a day absent. Finding his health much impaired, and conceiving that his native climate might do much towards prolonging his life, he requested to be permitted to return to it; his prayer was forwarded, strongly recommended to His Royal Highness the Commander in Chief, who was pleased to give directions that his wish should be complied with; and he was only waiting the arrival of a vessel from England to proceed to his mother, now residing in Van Diemen’s Land, when death arrested his progress and removed him to “Another and a better world”. He died on the 28th ult and was buried on the following day with both Military and Masonic honours: at his funeral there was a large attendance of military officers belonging to the respective regiments on this station; and a numerous assemblage of Brethren of the several Lodges also followed his remains to the grave.
He was a man of the most unassuming manners, possessing the strictest principles of honor and probity, and an unwearied attention to the duties of his station. As a member of the Masonic Body he is most deservedly regretted. In the office of the Master of the Lodge he pursued a line of conduct that could not fail to leave the deepest impression on the minds of his Brethren; to an anxious desire to see all the duties performed with credit to the order, he added the most inflexible justice, never permitting any deviation to pass without due notice and a proper reproof – indeed it may truly be said of him “that he did unto others as he would they should do unto him”.
