There is reference to a cemetery between Sinclair's and Clayton's Hill, at an East Borough Meeting. This was around the time of the Eureka reinterments of Captain Ross, James Brown, Thonen and Tom the Blacksmith. [1]

Charles Phillips recalled: 'We arrived in Ballarat on 20th August 1852 and camped in and 8x6 ft tent on Clayton’s Hill named after David Clayton an American who after working at his trade as a cooper making tubs, cradles &c for the diggers for some time returned to his native land'.[2]
