This week I am featuring articles for my ex-husband’s 3x great grandfather, John Hooton.
John Hooton, his wife Eliza, and son Henry had travelled to Australia on the “John Bull”, arriving in Port Phillip in January 1840. The first article I am featuring is about the arrival of the “John Bull”.
John Hooton served as a juror in 1847
And again in 1848.
In 1850, John was one of those who proposed that Collingwood be made an independent Ward of the City.
This following article details the location of land John owned.
I couldn’t find a death notice for John, but I did find an article where Probate of John’s estate was granted.
I also found the death notice for his wife Eliza.
Her death notice was also in The Leader on Sat 29 Sep 1888.
