Goldfields Involvement, 1854

At the time of Eureka Lydia Mullet was said to have been in Ballarat with Thomas Turner, and they had a child in Ballarat in November 1855. It was said Lydia “went away” with the women and children to hide them from the fighting. Lydia, daughter of William and Lydia Mullett was born in Dorset. She came to Australia and with Turner had a child, Alice Marion, born in Ballarat in November 1855. The two were married in 1859, and they had three more children: William Thomas b. 1861 Ballarat; Lydia b. 1863 Ballarat; and Arthur b. 1868 Buninyong. Lydia Mullet died in 1870. [1]
