Bendigo Advertiser (Vic) Sat 18 December 1880

Margaret Lammas sought to have her husband
George Lammas bound over to keep the peace.
Mr. Brown appeared for the complainant, and
Mr. Rymer for the defendant. The evidence of
the complainant was to the effect that she had
been married to the defendant for four years.
He assaulted her on the 7th inst, and threatened
to take her life, and she felt in danger of her life.
The bench bound the defendant over in two
sureties of £10 each, and himself in £10, to keep
the peace for three months.

Hi janilye and thank you.
After all these years you never cease to amaze me with what you dig up from old newspaper reports. What happened after this alleged assault is any ones guess. We know George and Margaret had a daughter in 1880 named Emma Elizabeth, and Margaret died in 1882 at the young age of 23 years.

This journal was updated today with a few more details.
Further record searches on the LAMMAS and BARRATT lines really surprised me and will include more updates when I get things sorted out.

And what caused Margaret's death at such a young age?

by janilye on 2021-08-14 02:01:07

Hiya Tonkin, Indeed! What happened to Margaret?. I couldn't find any report on it.
I did find a report of a George Lammas sailing back to mother England.

Hi, Leonard and Phoebe Lammas Brock are my great x 3 grandparents as their eldest daughter Julia Ann [JAL] partnered John Henry Tinsley [JHT] around 1860 as they had 5 children between 1862 and 1869, one dying as an infant. JAL and JHT met in Sandhurst as JAL's father Leonard leased a greengrocery and house in Bridge st Sandhurst between 1860s and 1890s while JHT had a freehold ' electric galvaniser' business also in Bridge st diagonally opposite Leonard's. I'm well curious about George William Leonard and his court appearance: domestic violence early in their marriage. Yes, George & Elizabeth had 3 daughters, only 1 surviving into adulthood but I don't yet know if she lived all her life in Sandhurst or moved away. I've yet to have it confirmed but I'm looking into a possibility that George moved to Warragul in Gippsland and died there in 1934 - I'm currently going through Gippsland cemeteries to verify this. Please share information about how long Leonard and Phoebe lived in Sandhurst as the the whole family bar Emma who was born in 1859 in Sandhurst migrated in 1857 to Melbourne. I know they lived in Canvas Town in Emerald Hill for some time before making their way to Sandhurst. Any info you have on the family and also on Martha's three husband/partners and life as a businesswoman/ singer throughout the south island in New Zealand. BTW, how are both of you related to Leonard and PhoebeLammas Brock?? Cheers, Tim Murphy, Melbourne

Hello Tim, I'm not related at all, nor is Tonkin. I commented on the above with a newspaper article I found.
Hopefully the information Tonkin, myself and other researchers find and post in this forum, is beneficial to people like yourself, looking for answers to their family history question.
The advantage of Family Tree Circles is that when you ask a question, it is posted for the whole world to see.
My advice to you is- you should make your own page put all the information you have on it, including what you have written above and post it. That way anybody who knows anything with write on your page.
'BTW there are no Lammas deaths registered in Victoria since 1898 when Leonard Lammas died age 86, searching the years 1885 -1940.

This George would have been the same age as George William Leonard LAMMAS
