He served during the whole of the peninsular campaign and was present in six general actions, Vimierria, Corunna, Basaco, Salamanca, Vittoria, St Sebastian.

On the 26th September at Uley, Gawler Hills by the Rev J.P Buttfield, Mr Thomas Garlick of Smithfield, timber merchant, second son of Mr Moses Marlick, to Miss Mary Berjew, fourth daughter of the late Mr. Charles berjew of Hermitage, Dorset.

The late Mr T Garlick – On Wednesday Mr Thomas Garick, one of the early band of pioneers died at Frewville.  He arrived with his father in 1837 on the ship “Katherine Stewart Forbes”.  He was a brother of Mr D Garlick the President of the Architects Association and of Mrs Pitcher, mother of the Rev J.G Piechey, rector of West Adelaide.  The late Mr. Galick married Miss Berjew, daughter of Mr. Charles Berjew, of Sherborne, Dorset, architect – an agnet for Admiral Digby, by whom he had two daughters.  He was for many years engaged in Agricultural and commercial pursuits, and was a captain of volunteers under the old regime.  Successful in viticulture at Gawler Hills.

When Moses Bendle garlick returned from the Napoleonic wars he found that weaving machines had made such progress during the war, probably due to demands for uniforms during the war that he and his brothers could no longer sell their hand woven west of England broadcloth.  Mr Garlick decided to immigrate to South Australia seeing a resemblance between our hills and the Cotswold’s hills of Gloucester.  He settled in the district giving it its name of Uley Bury (A Bury in England is a tree covered plateau).
