Jemima Anna Walder was a publican in Ballarat, Victoria, 1911-1913.

History[edit | edit source]

Jemima was the daughter of James Flemming and Mary Anna Kenny, born in 1857, in Ballarat, Victoria.[1][2] She married John Walder in 1907.[3]

Jemima took over the license of the Town Hall Hotel, after the death of her husband John in 1911. She applied to the Licensing Court to temporarily transfer the license to Mary E. Mansfield:

Jemima Walder, licensee of the Town-hall Hotel, on Friday applied for permission to be granted to Mary E. Mansfield to conduct the hotel for a period of six months as she (the licensee) would be absent from the State that period. Mr. S. J. Goldsmith P.M. said that the period mentioned would extend beyond the annual sitting of the Licensing Court, and that it was not his custom to grant permissions in these circumstances. He, however, granted consent up to November 30[4]

In August 1913, she transferred the license to Daniel O'Keane.[5]

She died in Moonee Ponds in 1947, aged 90, and was buried in the Old Ballarat Cemetery on 27 December 1947, in Grave J 1 4R2, with her husband.[6][1]
