Background

Sometimes recorded as Manshall Flatow, Flatow was born in Poland to a Jewish family in 1818, arriving in Australia in 1853. He was married to Catherine.

Goldfields Involvement, 1854

After the burning of James Bentley’s Eureka Hotel ten men were arrested on 27 October 1854, but later the charge was dismissed against seven. They were John Balderston, Manestra Flatow, Butler, Hurd, McIntosh, Stewart and Vanderbyle.[1] Henry Westerby, Thomas Fletcher and Andrew McIntyre, were tried, convicted and sentenced to gaol on 20 November 1854. J.B. Humffray, Black and Kennedy, representing the Ballarat Reform League demanded the release of these prisoners on 27 November. It was a fatal mistake, as the use of the word “demand” strengthened Governor Hotham’s resolve for control.[2]

Flatow was paid £27.4.0 in December 1854 for shoes for sailors, related to the Military at Eureka. He died in Geelong in 1885.
