Background

Natale D’Angri was born in Corfu, Greece in 1826. His father, Savrio, was from Naples, Italy. Natale D'Angri was an early pioneer of Ballarat and mined the rich Italiana Hole at Old Gum Tree Flat, Ballarat. On his very last bucket scoop Natale won some nuggets from the ground, one being almost the size of a brick (total of 10lb troy weight). [1]

Goldfields Involvement, 1854

Post 1854 Experiences

Natale was naturalised in 1861 which enabled him to purchase land in the Colony of Victoria. He married Eliza Watts in East Melbourne. D’Angri mined at Creswick where he had an interest in the Australasia Mine. The President of this mine was Peter Lalor. In 1869 Lalor and D’Angri were partners in the Red Streak Mine, Creswick. After mining D'Angri turned his hand to nurseryman and was an officer of the Ballarat Horticultural Society, which was formed in 1859. D’Angri was also an early member of the Ballarat Colonist’s Club and the Masonic Lodge.[2]
