Thomas Shillington was a publican in Ballarat, <1885>.

History[edit | edit source]

Shillington was a member of the Ballarat City Fire Brigade, and in November 1867 he was elected to the committee.[1] In August 1872 he was granted six months leave of absence.[2]

In December 1885, Thomas Shillington had his license for the City Brigade Hotel in Sturt Street renewed after the police withdrew their objection.[3]

His wife was arrested in January 1889:

A well known resident of Ballarat, named Mrs. Shillington, wife of the late proprietor of the City Fire Brigade Hotel, was incarcerated in the city lockup to-night on a charge of stealing 18 yards of black silk, valued at £9, from the premises of Mr. Andrew Roberts, of Raglan-street north.[4]
