James Hall was a brickmaker in Ballarat, <1887>.



James Hall, the son of William Hall, married Jane Mewburn. Jane was the daughter of another Ballarat brickmaker.[1]

His premises were located (according to the Australasian Federal Directory) on Chisholm Street, Ballarat.[2]


Charles Hall, who has a sister aged 91, living in Perth, said he well remembered bullock teams hauling firewood to the Black Hill Mine. He and his sister were amongst the earliest scholars at Black Hill School. Bricks carrying the floral patterns were used in many houses which his father [James] erected in Ballarat.
