Background

Llewellyn Rowlands was from Wales.

Goldfields Involvement, 1854

Llewellyn Rowlands was an innocent victim who was brutally murdered by the Police. He was talking to Benjamin Welch when he saw some troopers and prisoners near the St Alipius' Catholic Chapel. On going to have a closer look, he was ordered to surrender by the trooper. He refused, and "the man deliberately got off his horse and shot him through the heart". This was estimated to be "very nearly a quarter of a mile" away from the [[Eureka Stockade].
