He probably arrived in Australia in 1832 with his father Francis Ellard, who established a prominent publishing, music, instrument, and ticket selling business in Sydney. Frederick Ellard arrived in Melbourne in 1840, and again in 1847 and 1848 after returning from further musical studies in London. He lived in Sydney in 1842, performing in concerts and publishing his first composition in Australia, The Sydney Corporation Quadrilles. His numerous compositions of the 1840s were published by his father's business. He became known in Sydney as a cellist, and he taught pianoforte and singing between 1851 and 1867.
