ARRESTS AT EUREKA: WITNESSES AT THE EUREKA TRIALS

Information provided by Jenny Fawcett

Eureka Flag


The following list of names is that of the men who were arrested during, and after, the insurrection held in the Eureka Stockade on 3rd December 1853. The information was supplied by a correspondent to the Argus newspaper who was writing about occurrences at Ballarat.

The men arrested, between the 6th and 10th December 1854, were not brought before the Police Court of Ballarat until Martial Law had been declared.

Police Proceedings

The Police Court proceedings were to determine whether the men arrested should be committed for trial.

    'The court met about 10.00 am, Mr Sturt presided and Mr Smith and Mr Webster sat with him. Mr Hackett was in court but did not take his seat on the bench and interfered little with the proceedings of the court. The public, in whose presence the examination was conducted, consisted of two representatives of the Melbourne morning Herald, two from the Argus, two solicitors and a few officers of the military and police forces, also Mr J H Dunne, the barrister and a number of soldiers and constables, the admission of the general public to the camp being strictly prohibited, and the parties interested being admitted only by special order.'

Mr Hackett suggested that a placard with a list of the parties, whose cases should come to trial, should be affixed to a tree in the camp and each new case called should be announced so that the anxiety of relatives should be allayed and the witnesses might be on the alert.

The list of those men arrested within or near the stockade and subsequently discharged are denoted by an asterisk. The Ü denotes names additional to those listed by Ian McFarlane in the September 1994 Genealogist.
