History[edit | edit source]

Sidney Alan Blenkiron was born c.1910, to Thomas Blenkiron and Jean Feary.[1] In 1936 Blenkiron was listed in the electoral rolls as being a hotel keeper living at 10 Victoria Street, Ballarat East.[2] In June 1936, Blenkiron was charged with several breaches of the licensing laws:

For having failed to have the bar doors properly shut and fastened after trading hours on May 16, Sydney Blenkiron, licensee of the Munster Arms Hotel was fined £5 by the City Court Bench on Tuesday. He was also fined £2 for the illegal disposal of liquor and 5 for having permitted unauthorised persons to be on the premises.[3]

In 1938, he was the publican at the Munster Arms before the license was transferred.[4]

Blenkiron died in Watsonia in 1962.[1]
