History[edit | edit source]

In June 1870 John Davis advertised he had moved to the Miners' Arms in Bridge Street.

REMOVAL— JOHN DAVIS, late of the National Hotel, Main road, will be happy to see any old friends at late M'Laren's Hotel, known as the Miners' Arms, Bridge street.[1]

In June 1870, Davis advertised for people to join a mining venture:

WANTED, Three MINERS, to join other Nine in an Alluvial Claim. Good prospects. Apply to John Davis, Miners' Arms, Bridge street.[2]

Davis was granted the license for the National Hotel in Bridge Street, Ballarat, in December 1873.[3]

A John Davis also applied for a license for an unnamed hotel in July 1863, but did not appear in court, so the hearing was postponed.[4]
