  • 31 Aug 1867, BLACKWOOD, (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) IT is our painful duty to record the demise of one of the oldest inhabitants of this place. Mr. Joseph Hudson breathed his last on Tuesday morning, after a long illness, aneurism of the heart being the direct cause of death. The deceased gentleman was a hotelkeeper at Barry's Reef for some years, and was very much respected. Nearly two hundred persons followed his remains to the place of interment, including several members of the Grand United Order of Oddfellows, of which order the deceased was a honorary member. The Church of England burial service was impressively read by the Rev. M. A. Ashe, after which Mr. Magnus read the Oddfellows' burial service, the members of the brotherhood consigning their little sprigs of rosemary into the grave, in compliance with the requirements of the order.8

  • 27 Feb 1869, Jane Hudson, of Barry's Reef, and W. S. Smith, of the Junction, were each fined £5, and £2 2s. costs, for selling spirits without a license. The cases were proved by the two informers who appeared at the Ballan Police Court—Alexander Henderson, of Church-street, Richmond, and J. Sainsbury, of St. Kilda—who have been employed for the especial purpose, at the instigation of the Shire Council.6
  • 28 Feb 1874, WEDNESDAY, FEB. 25. FITZGERALD V. ELLIOTT.
    Special case stated by the warden at Blackwood for the opinion of the Court. Mr. Holroyd for plaintiff; no appearance for defendant.
    This was a complaint by Mr. Fitzgerald against Jane Elliott and John Elliott, as executrix and executor of August Hausmann, to obtain a declaration that they had forfeited all their right to a residence area. No. 191, Barry's Reef, Blackwood. In 1868, a Mr. Hudson and his wife were in possession of Crown lands at Blackwood, on which was erected an hotel. He died, leaving a widow, who, in August, 1869, married August Hausmann. Hausmann was registered as the owner of the land under a residence area license. In January, 1870, he, by way of lien, transferred his interest in the land to Fitzgerald, to secure payment of a sum of £164 10s., before June, 1871. In June, 1870, Hausmann died, and his widow married John Elliott. None of the money advanced to Hausmann had been repaid. Hausmann made no will, and Mr. and Mrs. Elliott were sued as executrix and executor de son tort. They refused to give up possession of the land to Fitzgerald. The warden was about to make an order in favour of the plaintiffs, but at the request of defendant's attorney he reserved certain questions for the opinion of the Court. "1. Had he jurisdiction under the Mining Statute and the bye-laws of the Ballarat Mining Board, to hear and adjudicate upon a complaint for forfeiture of a residence area for non-payment of a lien?" His Honour thought he had jurisdiction, although the complainant might make a suit of redemption on payment of the amount of the lien. "2. Could the present proceedings be brought under section 101, subsection 3, or section 177 of the Mining Statute ?" His Honour said that the proceedings must be brought under both sections. If that were done, the complaint could be upheld. "3. Could the defendants be sued jointly as executor and executrix de son tort ?" His Honour said as they were both in possession of the ground, both could be sued; and the Married Women's Property Statute did not affect the case. He further held that the plaintiff could recover possession of the ground, and that the order should be drawn up, directing John Elliott to give up possession, and directing Mrs. Elliott not to withhold possession.
    The Court then adjourned sine die.7
