6 November 1895, Bendigo Advertiser (Vic. : 1855 - 1918), page 4

…Photo from the State Library of Victoria collection, courtesy of Alan Condron In a blog post last December about John (Jack) CONDRON, discoverer of the Poseidon gold nugget, I asked who had owned the Globe Hotel in Bridgewater-on-Loddon, Victoria, Australia (pictured above). The inscription on the hotel apparently reads "Condron's Globe Hotel 1890". Thanks to fine detective work by correspondent Timothy Condron, I can now say that the hotel was in the hands of James CONDRON, brother of the John CONDRON. Digging in the Trove online Australian newspapers archive, Timothy found the following advertisement in the Bendigo Advertiser for November 6th, 1895 : "Tenders are required until 11th November, for the Purchase of the Globe Hotel, Bridgewater. Title perfect. Highest tender not necessarily accepted. Tenders to be addressed to JAMES CONDRON, Globe Hotel, Bridgewater". The same newspaper for May 19th, 1897 , records the transfer of the hotel's license: "INGLEWOOD, TUESDAY. LICENSING COURT. - At this court today, Mr. Greene, P.M., granted the transfer of the license of the Globe hotel, Bridgewater, from James Condron to John Carrick". A "Mr. Condron, of the Globe hotel", presumably the same James CONDRON, was an innocent party in the drowning of an Edward RICHARDS in…

According to the report in the Bendigo Advertiser for March 3rd, 1896 , while taking a ride in Condron's boat, Richards stood up and being inebriated fell and drowned in the river, despite…

As noted in my post of December last year, James and John were both sons of Thomas CONDRON and his wife Catherine (Murphy) CONDRON. Their link to the discoverer of the Poseidon nugget is confirmed by this notice in the Bendigo Advertiser for April 1st, 1907: "Mr. Thomas Condron, a resident of the Tarnagulla district for fully 50 years, died at Newbridge on Good Friday, at the age of 85 years. His son, John,…
