Colonel Arthur Rankin 1816-1893

Soldier, showman, businessman and politician, Rankin was one of the county's most colourful personalities. He commanded the Ninth Military District (1855-61) and served three brief terms as the federal member for Essex, although his quick temper and lack of tact ultimately cost him his political career.
