Background

William Hanover Emmermann was born in Petersburg, Russia.[1] He was the son of a shoemaker who arrived in Victoria in 1853 at which time he mined at Ballarat.[2] His name can also be spelt Emmarmann.

An unpublished diary makes reference to Emmerman as the pikeman whose terrior would not leave his side after Emmerman’s death, although according to Peter Lalor the pikeman could have been Edward Thonen.[3]

He died aged 20 years and was buried at Ballarat on 03 December 1854.[4] Adolfus Lessman was the informant on the death certificate.[5]

Goldfields Involvement, 1854

Emmerman died from gunshot wounds during the Eureka Stockade battle.[6] He was probably the youngest to be killed at Eureka. [7]
