Gloucester Advocate is an English language newspaper published in Gloucester, New South Wales, Australia.
The Gloucester Advocate was founded by Frank Townshend. Townshend was from a family of journalists and newspaper printers, and had previously been involved with the setting up of newspapers in Cape Town, New Zealand, Newcastle and the Walcha Witness in Balgowlah, New South Wales, which he edited and printed for over 40 years. Townshend arrived in Gloucester in 1905 to commence a paper there, and released the first issue of Gloucester Advocate on 8 July. This corresponded with the time that Australian Agricultural Company's 500,000 acre estate was being subdivided. After a short time, Townshend sold the newspaper to the Rye family in October 1906.See the full Wikipedia entry
