Frackelton, William Scott

Minister for the Randwick parish from 1885, preaching at the town hall before he became the first minister at the Randwick Presbyterian Church when it was built in 1889-90. He moved to Brisbane, Queensland in 1896. No stranger to controversy, he was once dubbed by a Sydney newspaper 'Frackelton the Fanatic' and in 1908-09, he made national headlines when he took legal action against the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church of Queensland in the state's Supreme Court.
