History[edit | edit source]

Joseph Haines was the son of John Haines and Maxwell Palma Ballantine, born c.1859. John held the license for the Adelphi Hotel in Sturt Street, Ballarat, until he was declared insolvent in May 1870.[1]

His brother, Thomas Maxwell Haines was the publican of the American Hotel in Creswick. Joseph worked as the manager of this hotel.

Haines died on 6 March 1897 in Creswick:

HAINES.—On the 6th March, at Creswick, Joseph Erskine, beloved brother of Thomas, John, and M. E. Haines, aged 38 years.[2]

THE Friends of the late Mr JOSEPH HAINES, of Creswick, are respectfully invited to follow his remains to the place of interment, the Creswick Cemetery, on Monday (This Day). The funeral will leave his late residence, the American Hotel, at 3 o'clock p.m. A. PASCO and SONS, Undertakers, Creswick.[3]

Mr Jos. Haines, brother of Mr T. M. Haines, of the American hotel, died this afternoon, after an illness of some duration. He suffered from consumption, and a few weeks back, being very ill, he entered the hospital. He became gradually worse, the disease being in an advanced stage. General regret was felt in the town to-day when the sad event became known, as the deceased, who was an officer and leading member of the fire brigade, was very popular amongst his circle of friends.[4]

In his will, signed with a X, he left everything to his sister, Maria Elizabeth Haines.[5]
