Goldfields Involvement, 1854

William Frank Charlstone was residing at Ballarat when he signed the Benden Hassell Petition in 1856. [1]

On 28 November 1854 a detachment of the 12th Regiment entered Ballarat between nine and ten o’clock at night and marched through the Eureka Diggings accompanied by some transport waggons. An incident ensued which resulted in injuries to the Drummer Boy, John Egan; the publican, Benden Hassell; and the carter, George Young. This is the incident which is described below.
