Goldfields Involvement, 1854

The insurgents council of war had met in the Diamond's store.[2] She gave evidence during the 1855 Goldfields Commission, stating that as soon as she heard gunshots she run away, and that her store was half in and half out of the stockade.

Post 1854 Experiences

Diamond's store was raided and set on fire by the Military after the Eureka Stockade. Martin Diamond was killed by the soldiers, although Anne Diamond claimed he had nothing to do with the battle.[3]
