History[edit | edit source]

Henry Newton was the son of William Henry Newton and Mary Ann Stoneman, born at Indented Head in 1854.[1] His father became a farmer at Mount Prospect, and in 1865 held a beer license for an unknown business there.

He married Mary Ware, in Ballarat in July 1879:

NEWTON - WARE —On the 30th July, at 78 Lyons street, by the Rev. William Thomas, Mr Henry Newton, farmer, Mount Prospect, to Miss Mary Ware, Ballarat, late Cynffig Hill, Glamorganshire.[2]

Newton took over from Caesar Quine as publican of the Telegraph Hotel at Mount Prospect in April 1892.[3]

In January 1912, he was crushed by his horse:

CRUSHED UNDER HORSE. CRESWICK. Wednesday. While Harry Newton, hotelkeeper and landowner, who resides at Mount Prospect, was riding along Castlemaine-road last evening, his horse stumbled. The animal fell on Newton, breaking his leg above the ankle, and fracturing three ribs. He was removed to the Creswick Hospital, and treated by Dr. Sleeman.[4]

Newton died at Miners' Rest in 1926.[5]
