Land surveyor, of Dublin. Samuel Gale had been taken into the partnership of SHERRARD & BRASSINGTON by 1828, when the name of the firm is given for the first time in Wilson's Dublin Directory as SHERRARD , BRASSINGTON & GALE . In 1832 the partnership became BRASSINGTON & GALE (1) and as such is listed in the directories until at least 1900. Samuel Gale's name disappears from the directories between 1875 and 1883, as does that of Samuel Gale, jr, presumably a son, who in 1874 had the same work and home addresses - 52 Sackville Street Upper and 160 Rathgar Road - as Samuel Gale, senior.(4) By 1883 only a Mrs Gale was living at the latter address. RICHARD GALE was another son.
