Lamplough research

In 1998 Denis Strangman published an index of names associated with the  Lamplough Rush. He also made available an article on the rush to Lamplough that he first published in 1987.

With the creation of the new website the website addresses, the URLs, no longer work for the previous website. However the content has been migrated.

The Lamplough names index can be found at and the 1987 article can be found at

A later article also written by Denis Strangman and published in 1989 in the Victorian Historical Journal by the Royal Historical Society of Victoria can now be found at – navigate to page 3. The Victorian Historical Journal has been digitised by the State Library of Victoria.


Neither Denis nor I have  found any images of Lamplough during the 1859-60 rush. This photograph from about 1920 of the Lamplough Post Office is in the collection of the Avoca and District Historical Society. The Society’s collection, most of which is not on-line,  also contains more information about people associated with the rush.
