One of my ancestors was a George Scott who was the barber at Rutherglen. His descendents ended up around Junee and Melbourne. I think he cut Ned Kelly's hair!!

If he did, I bet he gave him a very good haircut! Your ancestor would have had nerves of steel.Now I know why Ned had such a long beard. There probably wasn't a barber brave enough to approach him with a razor. The barber shop in Rutherglen would have been booming, there were 20,000 people there around that time.

Hi Geoff,

I realise this thread is old, but your post interested me. George Scott who married Mary Allott and was a barber at Rutherglen, is my great great grandfather. I have a little information such as birth, death, burial and a photo or two. However, I would be interested to know if the Ned Kelly haircut story is true! Have you any further information about it or any other stories about his life?
