GOAD, Frederick

Born: fl. 1884
Died: 1893


Goad trained as a civil engineer and architect and was in partnership with FL CANNING from about 1884 until 1893 (cf CANNING & GOAD). In around 1884 he was working with Canning in Queenstown, in Bloemfontein (c1884-1886) and finally in Johannesburg until his death. It seems that his wild life caught up with him, his numerous affairs apparently leading to his being shot by a jealous husband.
