Sir Henry Parkes (May 1815 - April 1896) was an Australian politician and businessman who served as a Premier of New South Wales plus four other occasions from 1872 to 1891. He has been referred to as the "Father of Federation" for being one of the most influential advocates of the Federation of Australia. Parkes was the primary force in setting up the conference in 1890 and Constitutional Convention in 1891 which led to the federation of Australia. He didn't live to see the end of the process and was described by The Times as "the most commanding figure in Australian politics". As mentioned, this is the first and currently the only example recorded on the SGC census report!
