Egbert Henry Guilliard was a Seventh-day Adventist (SDA) pastor, missionary and long-serving church administrator. During World War II, he served as the SDA chaplain of the Armed Forces in Australia. At the time of his death, he was the oldest ordained minister of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Australia.

Birth and Family

Egbert Henry ‘Bert’ Guilliard was born on June 6, 18741 in St Helier on the island of Jersey in the English Channel.2 He was the first child of his parents, Henry Guilliard (July 17, 1853-February 17, 1932) who was a coach-maker, and Eliza Rachel nee Luce (September 3, 1852-August 14, 1942).3 When Bert was a year old, his family immigrated to New Zealand on the Ocean Mail.4 A baby brother, Alfred Charles, was born thirteen days before the ship docked in Auckland, but he only lived four months.5 Altogether, Bert had seven siblings, five of whom reached adulthood. They were Cecil Anne (April 23, 1878 – Jan 16, 1907), Edith Mary (Carr, April 20, 1881 –May 3, 1969), Maud Ethel (Dowding, April 18, 1884 – August 16, 1916), Harry Jack (April 10, 1886 – August 8, 1976), and Arthur (May 7, 1888 – May 24, 1957).6

Conversion

The family was living in Napier, in the north island of New Zealand, when, in 1888, Pastor A. G. Daniells commenced preaching the Seventh-day Adventist beliefs at evangelistic meetings held in that city.7 The controversy that Daniells’ preaching aroused became, for some, an entertainment, and Henry Guilliard suggested to his wife that they attend.8 Eliza and the older children became very interested in the Biblical presentations. Despite Henry’s subsequent opposition,9 Eliza and Bert were baptised10 and became charter members of the Napier SDA church which was established April 22, 1889.11

Early Manhood

With his mother and siblings Bert attended the Napier church faithfully. In 1890, when Bert was just sixteen years old, he left home to travel from town to town, selling books as a literature evangelist.12

By 1893 he had returned home to Napier and held the position of church clerk.13 When Mrs E. G. White visited New Zealand for several months that year, she attended the first SDA camp-meeting in the Southern Hemisphere which was held in Napier.14 During her stay, she was encouraged to take a buggy ride each day,15 and Bert had the privilege of driving her.16 Right throughout his life, he loved attending camps17 and other church gatherings.18

Baptised along with the Guilliards were Mrs Margaret Caro and her three sons. Dr Edgar R. S. Caro, after training as a doctor in the United States, worked at Battle Creek Sanitarium and then was appointed to establish the SDA medical work in Australia. Some time after he became the medical superintendent of the Summer Hill Sanitarium in Sydney in 1898,19 he invited Bert to come to Sydney and be his coachman.20 By August, 1900, Bert was working in the treatment rooms of the Sanitarium as a masseur.21 He was employed in this capacity until Summer Hill Sanitarium closed in December 1901.22 During the later months of 1900, preparations commenced for the building of the new Sanitarium at Wahroonga23 and Bert was among the volunteers who worked to dig the foundations.24

Prior to this, from 1895 until 1900, Egbert Henry Guilliard was listed in the New Zealand Electoral Rolls as a monumental mason in Gisborne,25 and he again appears in the 1905 roll with this occupation but this time at Napier26. However, he makes no mention of this profession in his Worker’s Biographical Record.27

By 1907 he was living in Auckland28 where he cared for the Ponsonby church,29 and throughout 1908 he was colporteuring in the Bay of Plenty30 from Opotoki as far north as Waihi31 despite being listed in the electoral roll as a builder at Cambridge.32 The church’s Pukekura Intermediate School opened in 1908 just one and a half kilometres from Cambridge, and building was on-going at the time, so perhaps he was also helping there.

Marriage, Education and Family

On December 23, 1908, at the age of 34, Bert married Helena Mary Teasdale. She had been born in Auckland on May 4, 1883 to George Wilkinson Teasdale (1838-1924) and his wife, Mary (Gunson, 1840-1923) just a year after they had emigrated from Lancashire to New Zealand.33 Helena was the youngest of seven children: Agnes Jane (Newbold, June 1859 – December 16, 1947), Annie (Condon, December 1860 - July 27, 1951), Isabella (September 1865 - June 1882), George (July 17, 1868 - June 23, 1967), Margaret (Wantzlick, December 1873 – September 1943) and Elizabeth Minnie (MacKenzie, then Waite, March 1876 – July 25, 1956).

Her family had become SDAs through the ministry of Pastor A. G. Daniells in 1888,34 and a number of them served the church in various capacities.35 Helena commenced selling Christian literature door-to-door in 190236 when she was only nineteen. In 1906 she finished her studies at the Sydney Sanitarium and Hospital although she did not graduate,37 and in December of that year she set sail with her brother George, her sister Margaret, and their families for the East Indies where they had been appointed to pioneer as missionaries.38 She went with George and his wife, Martha, to Sourabaya, in Java,39 where she served as a missionary from November 20, 190640 until October 1907 only returning home due to the poor health of her parents.41

The following year, she and Bert were married at her parents’ home in Auckland.42 For the next couple of years, they continued living in that city where Bert worked as a masseur in private practice.43

In 1912, Bert and Helena enrolled at Avondale to study to better fit themselves for missionary service,44 and at the end of the 1913 school year, Bert graduated from the Missionary Course.45 Their first child, Keith Helier Guilliard (d. February 9, 2013), was born September 16, 1913 just a month before his father’s graduation.

Career and Contribution

In November 1913, the Guilliards took up their first official appointment with the church on a tent mission team in Windsor, Melbourne.46 After working in several different locations around Melbourne, in February, 1916, they were appointed to Ballarat47 where they worked until the end of 1918.48 The next two years were spent in the North Queensland and Papua Conference mainly in Charters Towers and Bowen.49 While in Bowen their second child, Clinton George Guilliard, was born on May 19, 1919. Sadly, he died later that year on October 6. When Bert and Helena learned of a baby girl who needed a home they filled the void in their hearts by adopting her. Hazel Mary was born May 16, 1920 and lived until April 25, 2014. On August 22, 1944, she married Stanley Billings.

Missionary to India

The Guilliards accepted an appointment to Calcutta, India, in September 1920.50 While waiting to sail on October 16, the family attended the New South Wales conference camp-meeting.51 Here, on October 9, 1920, Bert was ordained to the gospel ministry.52

While in Calcutta, their daughter, Olwen Estelle was born May 1, 1921. (She married Russell Leslie Thomson on March 4, 1948.) During their stay in this city, Bert was successful in reviving church membership amongst the English-speaking sector.53 At the Biennial Conference of the North East India Union Mission held at the end of 1921, Pastor Guilliard was appointed Secretary of the Mission.54 However, the climate proved to be too harsh for Helena and the children so in May, 1922, the Executive Board decided to move them to pioneer in the cooler climate of Shillong, in Assam.55

At the commencement of the 1923 school year, Helena took the three children to reside at Mussoorie, so that Keith, who was nine and a half years old, could attend Vincent Hill, the SDA school there.56 Shortly afterwards, the position of Union Treasurer was added to Bert’s existing responsibilities, and he left Shillong firstly to work in Lucknow57 and then in February, 1924, back in Calcutta.58 The previous month, he said farewell to his family whose health necessitated care in Australia.59 They returned permanently to their homeland on the Mooltan60 and arrived in Sydney on February 4, 1924.61

In mid-1924, Bert was transferred to the South India Training School (later called Lowrey Memorial School) at Krishnarajapuram, near Bangalore62 to be the Bible teacher.63 He had a successful six months’ ministry there culminating in the baptism of twelve of the students.64 On December 13, he boarded the Moldavia in Colombo65 and arrived in Sydney on January 4, 192566 to rejoin his family who, in the meantime, had been residing near the Sydney Sanitarium in Wahroonga.67

Administrative Responsibilities

Bert joined the North New South Wales Conference, and the family moved to Newcastle (north of Avondale).68 There, on October 8, 1925, their last child was born, Lorna Frances. (She married Dr James Henry Greive in 1947 and died April 7, 2012.) He engaged in evangelistic and pastoral work69 until September, 1926 when he was appointed to be the Secretary-Treasurer of the Victorian Conference,70 and he and his family moved to Melbourne. Bert carried this responsibility until October 1929 when he was transferred back to Sydney, this time to be the manager of the Sydney Sanitarium and Hospital in Wahroonga which he had helped build nearly thirty years previously.71 This position was short-lived, as near the end of September, 1930, he was elected to be the President of the North New South Wales Conference,72 so they moved back to Newcastle.

Two years later, Pastor Guilliard was chosen to be the president of the Queensland Conference,73 based in Brisbane. An early challenge was to present to the Queensland Government the SDA church’s views on the proposed introduction of compulsory unionism.74 He also became a Justice of Peace.75 During the four years of his presidency he travelled widely about the conference as well as itinerating through some SDA missions in the South Pacific for two and a half months in 1935.76

At the Union Conference Session in Melbourne, September 7, 1936, he was transferred to be the President of the Victorian Conference,77 and the family shifted to Melbourne two months later.78

At the 1938 Australasian Union Annual Council it was decided that Pastor Guilliard would exchange places with Pastor J. W. Kent, president of the North New South Wales Conference.79 So, Bert resigned as Victorian President;80 however, Pastor Kent was not released for his part of the exchange, and, early in 1939, Bert accepted a position in pastoral ministry in Albury, New South Wales.81 Before the year was out, he was invited by the Queensland Conference to once again take their presidency,82 and within weeks the Guilliard family was once more living in Brisbane. In the mean-time, World War 2 had broken out and various restrictions put in place necessitated changes in the operation of the conferences.

Chaplain to the Military and RAAF Forces

In October, 1941, Bert was appointed to be the Assistant Secretary of the Australasian Union Conference,83 and also the Associate Editor of the Australasian Record84 and was based in Wahroonga. After the bombing of Pearl Harbour on December 7, 1941, the United States entered the war and commenced sending troops to the South Pacific. The General Conference requested that the Australasian Union make available a chaplain for the Adventist members of the Forces who were stationed within its jurisdiction.85 In September, 1942, Pastor Guilliard was made a field secretary of the Union Conference and took on this responsibility.86

Bert took this task very seriously and from then until the end of the war in 1945, he was almost constantly travelling from army camp to army camp all over Australia visiting not only the US soldiers who were SDAs but also the Australians.87 As well as visiting the U.S. members and keeping in touch with them, he would write to their spouses or parents letting them know their sons were well.88 Although he couldn’t visit those stationed in the Solomons and New Guinea, he corresponded with them89 and with others as far afield as the Philippines and Borneo.90

Upon the restoration of peace in August, 1945, and the demobilisation of the troops, Bert’s chaplaincy ceased, and he once again resumed his duties in the secretary’s department of the Union Conference at Wahroonga.91 He was now 71 years old.

At the Union Conference Annual Meeting in September, 1946, Pastor Guilliard was appointed to be the Union Conference Statistician.92 In this capacity he continued to travel widely until he retired on June 30, 1949,93 at 75 years of age.

Retirement and Later Life

After retiring, Bert and Helena moved to Melbourne where they lived the rest of their lives. Bert’s life continued to be active; he still officiated at weddings and many funerals, he attended as many camp meetings as he was able, and he became a familiar figure at Conference Sessions where he adopted the role of receptionist, accommodation organiser and time-keeper.94 He was an honoured guest at church jubilees and other celebrations where he loved recalling the history of the church; he attended his last session late in 1962 when he was 88.95

Pastor Egbert Henry Guilliard died in the Warburton Sanitarium and Hospital on August 13, 196496 after a distinguished and dedicated life of service. His wife, Helena, lived another 13 years most of them spent in the Coronella Homes in Nunawading, Melbourne, where she died August 17, 1977.97
