The committee appointed to visit Fanny Pollard brought in the following report

To Dorking & Horsham monthly meeting

We the undersigned of the committee appointed to visit Fanny Pollard have had an opportunity with her and have to report that she the said Fanny Pollard would not admit that the reports respecting her practice of taking too much strong liquor were true, and her husband in a solemn manner declared that he never knew his wife drink to excess, but that she was subject to a complaint which sometimes made her appear somewhat like a person intoxicated. The committee however were not satisfied and are of the mind that a further investigation of the case ought to be made.

He was a skilful surgeon, in practice for more than forty years, and a devoted member of the Society and in all the trials of his long life he was upheld by his faith. A sense of his own unworthiness in public ministry often persuaded him to withhold more than was in right ordering and he was never recorded a minister.

Among the Albright friends and kindred were the Atkins of Chipping Norton. Sarah Paul once lived with Joseph Atkins [ . . . ] and through them made the acquaintance of Mary and Lydia Albright. When she afterwards lived with Sir John Easthope's family she knew Wm. Pollard and it was when Mary and Lydia Albright went to see her near London that Uncle William and Aunt Mary first met.

It was a furiously hot day and the first time that several of us children had been to Meeting, and the Meeting house naturally was packed. He was a retired London doctor, a little man who originally dressed all in drab, till Aunt Mary coaked him to change his drab coat for a brown one. He never left off his short drab trousers and white stockings with low shoes; or very broad brimmed drab beaver hat. In London he used to ride a velocipede and frightened a patient once by telling him he had left his steed in his garden, but he gave it up when Sir John Easthope gave him a pair of ponies and the funniest little pill-box of a brougham, and an open carriage too with just room for two children on the back seat.

. . . Uncle Pollard went to see his brother. We used to be much interested in on story of that family - how one cold winter's night a woman and a baby came to Mr. Pollard's door and asked if she might come in and warm the child while her husband drove on to the Post Office and came back for her. Leave was freely given. After a good while she began to wonder that her husband was not back. Would Mrs. Pollard mind holding the baby while she went to the garden gate to see if he was coming. Mrs. Pollard took the child and the woman went and, despite careful search, they heard of her no more. But they kept the child and brought her up as one of their own family.

While Uncle Pollard was away, Aunt Mary altered their house, pulling down the dark old stairs and putting up some nice new ones, and turning a little back parlour into a hall. She also added a tiny greenhouse for she loved her flowers and used to twine a cobea over an arch in one of the bow windows. Uncle Pollard too was fond of his garden and used up various old surgical instruments as garden tools. He was very successful with his fruit and vegetables. One night a man climbed into his pear tree to steal pears and fell down into Uncle Pollard's garden and hurt himself so badly he could not climb back over the wall. So he came to the back door and knocked at a very early hour; 'Mary, go and see who's there,' said Uncle Pollard to Mary Pulham and she went accordingly to be greeted with, 'Oh, my dear good woman, for pity's sake let me through and never say nothing to nobody about it'. It was Uncle Pollard who first gave Mary Pulham the title of doctor because when she took to homoeopathy and prescribing largely, while he did not discourage, he privately somewhat laughed at her practice.

Uncle Pollard used to complain of the wasteful way most people pared apples. Never did any man do it more neatly than he, with very thin paring and then cut up just into the segments of the core, which he flaked off with no waste. He once offered a niece, afterwards Mrs. Thomas Nicholls, to giver her as much silk for her wedding gown as she could pare yards of paring off an eight inch girth apple, without breaking the paring and she pared 13 yards. She had a little girl who used to visit Charlbury and who died in consequence of running a needle into her knee when playing on the floor a fact that made all the Aunts insist if ever we dropped a needle it must be found and picked up.

Once Uncle Pollard was found by a zealous gamekeeper trespassing in Dytchley Woods and the man threatened to report him. 'Thee go and tell Charles Dillon,' was the reply, that thee found William Pollard walking in Dytchley Woods and thee can tell him too that William Pollard will do it again whenever he has a mind to.' Like others of his family Charles Lord Dillon was sociable and once, when Uncle Pollard had taken a six year old niece as far as Dytchley Park on a hot summer day, insisted on taking them the round of the private gardens and greenhouses and they walked and they talked till the weary youngster alongside had made much ado to get home again, for Uncle Pollard never picked a child up and carried her like other Uncles did. Aunt Mary was his second wife, but he lost both wife and only child, a little girl, many years before.

Uncle Pollard was a great snuff-taker, and never had more than two meals a day—a cup of broth or bread and milk at 7 a.m. and dinners of very fat meat and nearly raw cabbage at 1 p.m. At one time he liked a cup of very strong tea at 5 p.m. but gave it up. He suffered dreadfully from gout. In some ways he was in advance of his day and great amazement was expressed by many that he really believed 'people might safely wash all over in cold water every morning, and sleep with their windows open, no matter how cold it was'. He was a good hand at charming warts. One of the small nieces had a tiresome wart pushing out her thumb nail. Grave seniors counselled burning it away with caustic, which made the timid youngster shake in her shoes. 'I know something much better than that,' said the pitiful doctor, and he seized her hand, rubbed the wart round in some queer fashion—was it three times this way and three times that, and across and across?—repeating some rigmarole in Latin probably, and then he tossed her hand over her left shoulder and bad her think no more about it for she would soon see it no more for ever. 'Fudge!' thought the child, 'as if that could do any good!' But was it a charm? Did doctors use charms? Were charms wicked? Ought Friends to charm? But queer and interesting though it was there were plenty of things more so and she soon forgot all about it, till someone asked her some days after, 'Let me look at that wart, Caroline. Why! it's gone!!'

  Annual Monitor obituary:

Our dear friend was well known more than forty years ago as a skilful surgeon and medical practitioner in Stamford Street, Blackfriars Road, London. It is believed that, whilst diligent in his profession, it was his desire to be found fervent in spirit serving the Lord. This was evidenced, not only by a watchful daily life, but also by his diligent attendance of meetings, and his deep interest in the welfare of the Church. It may indeed be said of him, that he feared the Lord from his youth, and that he cherished a tender conscience ail his life long.

The marriage of our friend in 1820, with Maria Lamb, a devoted servant of the Lord, was felt by him to be one of the special mercies of his life; and when, a few years later, he was called upon to surrender both his precious wife and only child, the trial, though unspeakably sore, was meekly submitted to, in humble reliance on the wisdom and goodness of his Heavenly
Father.

A few times in the course of his long life, our dear friend was made willing to testify in the public assembly to the goodness of God our Saviour, and to the power of Divine grace. But his sense of unfitness and unworthiness for the weighty service of the public ministry of the Gospel, and it may be, an exaggerated estimate of the nature of the Divine call, tempted him often to withhold more than was meet. The memory of this unfaithfulness lay heavily upon his conscience for many years; and though permitted at length to realise that the pardoning love of God in Christ Jesus would cover this also, the thought of many opportunities lost would often recur with painful humiliation.

In 1849 William Pollard was married to Mary Albright, of Charlbury, where he afterwards resided till his decease. After reaching his 80th year, the prolonged illness of his dear wife claimed his unremitting attention almost day and night for many months; and the physical exhaustion consequent upon this left him, after her decease, prostrate, and almost overpowered by deep depression. In this time of sore trial and apparent desertion, the sense of past unfaithfulness rose up once more, and the aged Christian had for a time to tread his painful and solitary way, encompassed with clouds and gloom. But our compassionate Lord had not really deserted His poor servant Before the end came, the clouds were scattered, evidently by Divine power, and there was calm sunshine. As he passed through the valley of the shadow of death, he was mercifully delivered from all fear of evil, and brightly referred to "unmerited mercy and nothing else," as his safe passport to the heavenly city.
