The plaque commemorates merchant and publisher Frederic Lasseter (1828 - 1911), who transformed a small Sydney ironmongery firm into one of the city’s giant retail establishments, while retaining a firm grip on his commitment to fairness and generosity as an employer. Lassetter made the house Redleaf,  Double Bay, his home, and built St Brigid’s next door for the use of family members.

 The Woollahra Council Plaque Scheme honours exceptional people or events associated with our local government area, that have made a significant impact on life in the area or Australia as a nation.
