History[edit | edit source]

Thomas Ryan was born c.1797.

In June 1858 he was granted the license for the Brown Hill Hotel.[1] It was renewed in June 1859, May 1860, June 1861, 1862 and 1863.[2][3][4][5][6]

He died in Ballarat on 12 November 1872:

Mr Thomas Ryan, one of the oldest of Ballarat pioneers, died on Tuesday at the age of 75 years. The deceased pitched his tent at Brown Hill twenty years, ago, and made a comfortable “pile” there, winning the respect of all sorts of people by his good citizenship as storekeeper, publican, mine-furnisher, and deputy returning officer in both Parliamentary and Mining Board elections for that part of the district. He gave wives from his family to Messrs Ainley, Eastwood, and C. E. Jones, and only survived his own wife two years, Mrs Ryan having died that time ago at Brown Hill. Though a Catholic himself, deceased’s wife and family, were Protestants, and he lived latterly and up to his decease with the Rev. Mr Allanby, minister of the Church of England at Brown Hill. The funeral will take place on Thursday.[7]
