Background

Goldfields Involvement, 1854

John Amies was a carpenter. With his wife Emma Amies (Williams) he lived in a tent inside the Eureka Stockade. Shots were fired at the tent when a candle was lit during a curfew. Sandbags were packed against the walls of the tent to protect their baby, Elizabeth Amies. [1]
