BROCK, W. (Edward John Brock) 1829–1905

Veterinary surgeon from Nelson who practised in Christchurch in the 1880s. His hobby was painting horses, especially thoroughbreds, page 52 in the old style with slender legs and a very small head. The painter C. Lovell-Smith described him as a well known Christchurch character with ‘fawn coloured clothes, tight fitting, tight trousers, fore and aft peaked cap, silver mounted cane, white dundrearies, pink cheeks’. Lived in Riccarton. Curiously the name on his tombstone is Edward John Brock. Exhibited with CSA 1881–85.
