Born in Ireland in 1827, Lalor migrated to Australia in 1852 and headed to the Ballarat goldfields in 1854. Although aware of the growing resentment towards the government's laws regarding diggers, Lalor was initially not involved with the miners' rebellions.
From the early 1850s, miners coming to the Victorian goldfields were required to pay high fees for mining licences and were poorly treated and harassed by the authorities who were supposed to protect them. The government ignored the complaints of this itinerant population, who had no vote and couldn't buy land.
The Ballarat gold fields are now known as Sovereign Hill, a place where you can learn about gold and the Eureka Stockade.
When Sir Charles Hotham became the governer the licence checks became more often than before.
In 1851 there were only 50 soldiers and a few police, when the Eureka Stockade began police were recruitedfrom places near Ballarat.
