Mary Dorothy Bartlett: "Dora" born 25th July 1867, Criterion Hotel Doveton Street
Ballarat. Married
Charles Wemyss Sinclair on 25th February 1885 at St Paul's pro
Catherdral, Melbourne.  Family tradition said that she married an American and had a
tobacco Plantation the USA, however this seems unlikely to be true.  [
also named Mary
Dora on her father's death certificate]


George Washington Bartlett: born 4th July 1869, Ballarat, father of Criterion Hotel,
Doveton Street, Ballarat.[Age newspaper announcement Trove] The Horsham Time dated
15th November 1895 mentions George Washington Bartlett, lumper, giving technical
evidence about the damage to a wheat stack.  Recorded as living on father Anson's death
cert in 1904. Possible death on 11th January 1907 at the Alfred Hospital in Melbourne,
recorded as simply George Bartlett aged 38, usual residence South Yarra. No parents are
listed and Melbourne is stated as his place of birth rather than Ballarat. The certificates
states he never married and was a Lorry Driver. Cause of death was Phthisis Asthenia
[the general wasting or infirmary caused by tuberculosis] George was buried on 14th
January 1907 at Springvale Cemetery. If this is the correct George, and I feel it is, then
the 1903 electoral roll find him at 5** Chapel Street, South Yarra, a driver.
