Henry Mander Greaves was a draper in Buninyong, Victoria, <1876-1884>



Greaves had a draper's business whose premises (according to the Australasian Federal Directory) were located in Buninyong. [1] In 1876, the business was destroyed during the great fire which also burnt 14 other buildings.[2] The Ballarat Star reported that Greaves had a "... loss £1670; has a wife and two adopted children...are left destitute, all insurances having been paid over to creditors."[3]
