Guernsey Weekly Press, May 22 1926. The death of Mr Gaspard Le Marchant.

The death is announced, in his 84th year, of Mr Borlase Gaspard Le Marchant, at his residence, La Haye du Puits, Castel. He was a son of the late Le Marchant Thomas Le Marchant, of the Haye du Puits and Ryde, Isle of Wight, a scion of an old and distinguished Guernsey family, most of the members of which have migrated from our shores. His only son died some years ago while a schoolboy, and he is survived by a married daughter. Mr Le Marchant, a well known figure about our island in his high dog-cart, was a prominent member of the Grange Club and was always greatly interested in local affairs, and especially in matters agricultural.
