Andrew Ellard came to Sydney in 1839 and then set up apparently in competition with his son Francis. That it was some mutually agreed strategy should not be entirely discounted. However, in November 1839, during the pre-Christmas season Francis placed what reads as an exasperated warning advertisement: ‘MUCH inconvenience having been occasioned from a misapprehension that Mr. F. ELLARD and his father are connected in business . . .’ Soon after, Andrew advertised that he was leaving the colony and that his entire stock was up for auction. In February 1840, Ellard's stock of music and instruments was purchased by Alexander Maconochie for his convict settlement at Norfolk Island (source: Graeme Skinner, Australharmony).
The scores from the 'Opera of der Freischutz' have a printer's stamp on them: 'Printed by Goulding & Co. Soho Sq. London'.
