William Glyde (1789-7May1853), from Yeovil, arrived 1830 on the Rockingham (a Thomas Peel enterprise) living first at Clarence, near Rockingham. His wife Susannah had died in 1828 (Erickson). The eldest of their five children, Samuel Hallett Glyde (1815-) remained in England. The other four were: Susannah Hallett GLYDE Pearse (1818-1879), George Glyde (1821-1898), Sarah GLYDE Duffield (1824-), and Mary GLYDE Henderson (1826-).

Susannah Hallett GLYDE (1818-5Nov1879) married the first William Silas Pearse (1808-1866 - their memorial is at Fremantle Cemetery at Congregational D397), tho their remains may still like in the Skinner St cemetery.

Glyde Street in East Fremantle is named for this family, and probably specifically for George.
