Hi everyone, My 4th Great Grandfather was Thomas Green who was landlord of The Nugget Pub during the second half of the 19th century. There is a story about how in his early life he went to Australia as part of the gold rush and he then went on to name the pub. I have the passenger records for his trip. He sadly took his own life at the pub aged 70, in 1889 by cutting his own throat. The newspaper articles which report his death also refer to his prospecting and how the pub got its name. If anyone has any more information or can help me find anything else about the pub or my 4xGGF I would be really grateful. Thanks Melanie Caldicott

Hi Melanie, Welcome to our forum, and thank you so much for your super posts. Wave And how sad about your g-g-g-g-granddad, I never knew about that. Hopefully some of our members will be able to help you find out more about this, and the other subjects you've posts about - Eddie Weaver - Lord Mayor and Caldicott Research. In return, of course, we'd all love to learn more about these things, so if you'd like to share with us some of the research that you've done so far, it will be of great interest, and also help us to locate more specific information for you. Thumbs up

I didn't know about this, the art deco version is great, but shame they de-originalised it with the paint. At least it's not as grotesque as when the Phantom Coach was painted grey.
