James Barclay was a publican in the Ballarat district, <1860-1861>.



Barclay opened the Bald Hills Hotel on 4 August 1860:

"Since Saturday Mr James Barclay has opened a public house in the said locality, called " The Bald Hills Hotel," and as Mrs Barclay is presiding over the household - the lady who presented her lord and master with four pledges of conjugal affection at one birth - we have no doubt that their establishment will be extensively patronised by all classes of the community."[1]

He was still the publican in June 1861.[2]
